Richarlison was lauded by fans after Everton’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace. The 22-year-old scored a brilliant solo goal, hit the woodwork with a headed effort from a corner and was a constant threat all game.
He had numerous opportunities over the 90 minutes, frequently ran at the opposition to draw fouls & build attacks and whipped a number of balls into the box.
Another error for Pickford but brilliant save after 2-1. Schneiderlin had a really good game, some excellent switching the play passes. Excellent goal from Richarlison.

Richarlison is actually class you know, Ancelotti needs to build the team around him. DCL is having a great season too.

Richarlison was quality today. Best all round performance I’ve seen from him. Actually thought Schneiderlin was very good as well. We are starting to have more match winners which can only be good. #EFC #EVECRٍY #UTFT #COYB pic.twitter.com/sA4YLNf2ax

Excellent win today. Richarlison outstanding + will only get better( not for sale !)Carlo has the team organised effectively + scoring at key moments. Schneiderlin won every tackle + Seamus led by example. Amazing that two strikers upfront works isn't it Mr Silva?#EFC #NSNO

Against Palace, Richarlison made 45 touches, won three aerial duels, created one chance, hit the target with three of his five opportunities, completed 70.8% of his 24 passes, whipped in three crosses, made one tackle, drew one foul, had two successful dribbles and made one clearance.
The Brazilian international has made 29 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring and creating 15 goals. In the Premier League, he’s notched nine in 23 and is only four goals away from matching last season’s tally (13).
Richarlison has scored or assisted in four of his last five league appearances, so he’s enjoying a rich vein of form. Everton’s win on Saturday saw them go seventh in the table with 36 points from 26 games.
