Jordan Pickford has been as consistent as ever over the last few weeks at Everton, and he was back in fine form after the international break once again on Sunday. He played a starring role, saving a penalty, as the mighty Blues beat Crystal Palace 2-0.
Following the game, the England international took to Instagram to deliver his verdict on the result, and it’s fair to say that he’s pretty pleased. As he puts it, with 3 points and a clean sheet, it couldn’t have gone much better.

Pickford isn’t just a hero to English football fans, as he was over the summer, but he’s now clearly a hero to the Everton faithful too. His penalty save was crucial, and he seems to be growing in popularity with every passing week.
The game was just the second clean sheet of Pickford’s season so far, and so he’s got every right to be delighted.
If he can continue to improve, alongside his teammates, Pickford and Everton will genuinely be challenging at the top half of the table come next May.
At least, that’s what we’re hoping for.
