Everton have come leaps and bounds under the guidance of Marco Silva this season, who has improved the squad significantly.
The Portuguese boss is getting the best out of players like Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane and Idrissa Gueye, while new recruits Andre Gomes, Lucas Digne and Richarlison have quickly established themselves as crucial aspects of the team.
Naturally though, some changes were needed in the summer and Everton saw a number of players depart either on a permanent basis or on loan – and Nikola Vlasic was one of those, joining CSKA Moscow for the season.
The 21-year-old Croatia international struggled to find his feet at Goodison Park but has impressed during his time in Russia, scoring three goals and contributing two assists in 12 league matches while also finding the net on three occasions in five Champions League matches.
Vlasic was on the scoresheet again last night after scoring a penalty for CSKA against Viktoria Plzen, a match the hosts would go on to lose 2-1, and the continuation of his form got Everton fans discussing his future.
We have gathered some of their reactions below.
