Everton enjoyed a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday and Lucas Digne was one of many players praised for his performance. The 26-year-old was effective at both ends of the pitch, shutting out the opposition in his defensive third and creating opportunities in attack.
Digne saw a lot of the ball over the 90 minutes, was strong in the air and combative when called upon. The French international was a constant threat down the left too and was unfortunate not to have bagged a goal or assist for his efforts.
He forced a good save from Vincent Guaita after rifling a low free-kick and played a part in the Blues’ third goal – Digne’s corner was headed onto the woodwork by Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin followed up.
Quality today lad 💙
