Morgan Schneiderlin has been criticised by supporters for most of the season, but the Everton midfielder was hailed on social media after impressing in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.

The 30-year-old started alongside Gylfi Sigurdsson in midfield and was outstanding. He was dominant in the air, frequently turned over possession, seldom gave the ball away and was alarmingly accurate with his long balls (6/6).

Against Palace, Schneiderlin played for 90 minutes, made 66 touches, won two aerial duels, made four clearances, completed 86.1% of his 43 passes, made four tackles, had one shot and made four interceptions.

The French international has made 17 appearances in all competitions this season and may have given Carlo Ancelotti food for thought ahead of Everton’s meeting with Arsenal (February 23).

Schneiderlin hasn’t been a regular for the Toffees and hasn’t been the most consistent player, but his performance on Saturday will have silenced some critics.

With Fabian Delph suspended on Saturday, Ancelotti gave Schneiderlin the nod and was vindicated in his decision. Whether he sticks with the Frenchman remains to be seen, however.
