Everton continued their good post-lockdown form by defeating one of the Premier League’s top four clubs this evening.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side held firm despite a barrage of pressure to defeat Leicester City 2-1 at Goodison Park.
The Toffees took the advantage early on when youngster Anthony Gordon provided an expert cross for Richarlison to score before Gylfi Sigurdsson nailed one home from the spot just six minutes later.
MOTM vs Leicester?
A couple of changes at the break saw Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes get back into the game and his switch paid off with substitute Kelechi Iheanacho beating Jordan Pickford six minutes after half-time.
Though the Merseysiders managed to hang on to pick up their second successive victory.
Supporters watched the match from their homes once again and they were left thrilled with the performance of Gordon – the 19-year-old managed two key passes, two successful dribbles, won seven duels and even had three tackles, via SofaScore.
Not bad for your second start in the Premier League.
Impressed with Gordon. Definitely capable of playing that killer pass #efc

Great to see Anthony Gordon getting more game time and starting to look more confident. One to keep an eye on. #EFCmatchday

Great talent Gordon. Giving us some needed energy in midfield. Great assist

Keane was a stud, MOTM. Young Gordon showing quite a bit of promise, glad Carlo keeps giving him minutes. All that said, what's up with Gomes?

An incredible finish by Richarlison made possible by a perfect setup by Gordon. Every minute the young winger gets on the pitch is worth it’s developmental weight in gold. (And yet another argument against wasting minutes on those who aren’t part of the future) #EFC

Gordon's body faints and dribbling style actually reminds me of Richarlison

He does look promising , fingers crossed 🤞

He’s definitely quick. Feet are great. First touch is a bit heavy, but think that’s more composure, experience, think his touch is naturally fine.

He’s been fantastic 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
