With clear and obvious goalscoring issues at Everton this season, youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin is actually top of the pile joint with summer signing Richarlison on three. We then drop to two with Gylfi Sigurdsson and Theo Walcott before Michael Keane appears with his solitary goal so far in 2018/19.

With Cenk Tosun misfiring so far this season and with him dropping out for the recent defeat to Everton as manager Marco Silva tried to shake things up at the top of the pitch, a number of Everton fans on social media have been discussing what Sigurdsson brings to the party and the reactions are mixed – especially when you factor in the chances he’s created already this season.

As well as his two goals so far, the 29-year-old Icelandic international has notched up one assist, but I believe the statistics show that he’s averaging just over two chances per game for his teammates, so at that level he’s not simply a luxury player even though that’s what he can appear at points.
