On Sunday afternoon Everton battled to a very creditable point against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
There were a number of strong performances on the day from manager Marco Silva’s first team squad and if fans did have a gripe from the performance, it would’ve been in not getting more than one effort on goal across the game, but defensively we were spot on and the effort was certainly there as we limited them to only four efforts of their own.
Post-game, the performance of England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford certainly took the headlines as he pulled off a number of saves to keep the clean sheet for us and for many fans he was the outright Man of the Match.
His stop against Marcos Alonso caught the eye of BBC pundit Garth Crooks, and he picked Pickford for the spot between the sticks in his Team of the Week.
“The save from Marcos Alonso by England’s number one goalkeeper was world class. In fact, Jordan Pickford went on to make a number of first-class saves to keep Everton in a game that could, with a bit of luck, have gone their way due to his brilliance.”
Consistency and he looks like he’s enjoying himself and long may that continue.
