Lucas Digne was our Player of the Year last season, as he made an instant impact after joining Everton from FC Barcelona for a reported £18million, and put pen to paper on a five-year contract.
One year into the £90,000-a-week deal and Digne is much loved around Goodison Park, with fans lauding his efforts in Royal Blue.
Out of the 23 players to represent the Toffees in the Premier League last season, only Gylfi Sigurdsson (74) played more key balls than the French left-back (71), with the pair miles clear of the rest in terms of creating chances from range as Digne (24) and Sigurdsson (25) were the only men to record more than three.
Our France international also ranked second for assists (4), second for successful tackles (71) and second for interceptions (60) last season, and has continued his form into the new campaign with three tackles, three key passes and an assist to his name after the opening two matchdays.
His assist for Bernard’s winner against Watford has received a wide range of admiration, as supporters cannot get enough of his ‘Beautiful’ deep ball to the Brazilian midfielder.
The 26-year-old took over possession as the Hornets looked to fashion a chance on Jordan Pickford’s net in the tenth minute, before picking his head up to see the acres of space awaiting Bernard and unleashed a pinpoint accurate ball to his teammate to run through on goal, and open the scoring with a cleverly disguised effort drilled into the bottom corner.
