Everton enjoyed a 1-0 win over Burnley on Boxing Day and Djibril Sidibe was one of many players to come away with praise for his performance. The 27-year-old started in a makeshift right wing-back role in Carlo Ancelotti’s first game in charge and deliverered a man-of-the-match performance.

Sidibe was dominant in the air, frequently turned over possession, created numerous chances for his teammates, whipped in a lot of balls into the box and assisted the winning goal for Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Supporters lauded his contribution over the 90 minutes on social media.

Against Burnley, Sidibe made 62 touches, won four aerial duels, created three chances, had two shots with 50% accuracy, completed 79% of his 38 passes, whipped in five crosses, made three tackles, drew one foul, made one interception and made one successful dribble.

Since joining on loan from AS Monaco, the 27-year-old has been a regular for Everton in the last two months, featuring in 11 of their last 12 Premier League games. Everton have the option to buy Sidibe permanently for £12m and could consider meeting his release clause given the impact he’s had at Goodison Park.
