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.

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.
