Everton face a challenge in their quest to climb the Premier League standings this season and the start to life under Marco Silva has been turbulent.
The Toffees have given themselves a platform to build upon after defeating Brighton 3-1 at the weekend but difficult challenges are on the horizon, with Silva’s side set to travel to face Chelsea and Liverpool in the coming weeks.
December is also now right around the corner, which brings with it plenty of action over a short space of time, and Silva could be forced to look deeper within his squad to keep things fresh – and one youngster has got people talking on social media.
Coming off the bench in Tuesday’s 4-0 drubbing of African side Gor Mahia in a friendly at Goodison Park, academy graduate Nathan Broadhead made an instant impression by scoring his side’s third of the night.
That left many thrilled on social media and we have gathered some of the best reactions to his display below.
That’s how you make your first team debut . X
