With a more youthful looking Everton side from manager Marco Silva for Wednesday evening’s EFL Cup tie against Rotherham United, one man, in particular, stood out to many fans.

Gylfi Sigurdsson opened up the scoring on the evening and Dominic Calvert-Lewin added a second half brace to give us a 3-1 victory and passage through to the third round of the competition. Summer signing Lucas Digne certainly stood out to fans for his performance in the left-back slot, but with a number of youngsters on display, Jonjoe Kenny was a hot topic of conversation following the match.

DCL, Tom Davies, Mason Holgate and Kieran Dowell all started for the gaffer with a smattering of youth on the bench in the shape of Joao Virginia and Matthew Pennington, but these fans were delighted with Kenny’s individual showing as he grasped his chance to impress with both hands.

It was the 21-year-old’s first appearance of the 2018/19 campaign but Silva would’ve been impressed with what he saw so with Cup progression secured, we’re bound to see him again at least in that competition if he doesn’t get another Premier League shot in the near future.
