Everton are starting to find their rhythm under the guidance of Marco Silva and entered the international break in decent form after holding Chelsea to a goalless draw.
That has presented the Toffees with a platform to build upon in the busy run-up to Christmas, which starts by hosting Cardiff next weekend before making the short trip across the city to tackle arch-rivals Liverpool.
Silva was busy in the summer in a recruitment drive and it has already paid off, with Richarlison, Lucas Digne and Andre Gomes becoming crucial parts of the team, while positives have also been shown by Bernand and Yerry Mina.
Digne has caught the eye after arriving from Barcelona and his form this season has seen him force his way back into France’s international squad, providing the opportunity for him to build on the 22 caps he has earned so far.
The 25-year-old has spoken this week about why he moved to Everton from the LaLiga champions and fans have reacted positively to his comments. We have gathered some of their responses below.
