Everton held Chelsea to a goalless draw on Sunday to extend their recent record to just one defeat in their last six Premier Leauge matches.
The Toffees have historically struggled in their travels to Stamford Bridge and the fact that Maurizio Sarri’s side are undefeated in competitive matches under his guidance left the odds stacked firmly against Marco Silva’s side.
However, a superb team performance from Everton saw the Toffees return to Merseyside with a point and plenty of players attracted praise for their displays on social media.
Barcelona loanee Andre Gomes was once again highlighted for a solid performance, which has increased the urges from supporters for Everton to pursue a permanent deal for the Portugal international.
His partnership in midfield with Idrissa Gueye is developing into a crucial aspect of Everton’s side and fans on Twitter have spotted this as they heap praise upon Gomes.
We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
Get in blues!!!
Everton going away to Chelsea with players like Bernard, Digne, Mina, Gomes and Richarlison. Quality players.
Up the Toffees!

A good point that. We’re still lacking in the final third but I’m confident that will be put right in due course.
Andre Gomes was outstanding – we need to get him signed on a permanent deal as soon as possible.
What a difference a few months makes hey blues. #EFC

The thing i like the most about Gomes is every game i expect a mistake with the way he plays but it never comes he likes to get on the ball and very very rarely loses the ball.A massive signing for us
Marcel needs to convince Barca to sell him to us.Pure class.
