Everton are showing plenty of positive signs under the guidance of Marco Silva, who has managed to kick a previously underperforming side into gear during the first few months of his reign at Goodison Park.
Another impressive result was secured at the weekend after holding Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea to a goalless draw in a match where the odds were firmly stacked against the Toffees due to the fact the Blues are undefeated and Everton historically struggle at Stamford Bridge.
Plenty of players have earned plaudits for their performance during the game but not many have attracted as much praise as Idrissa Gueye, who has become a crucial part of the Everton side after developing a strong partnership with Andre Gomes.
A state has now been revealed which shows that Gueye has made 57 tackles in the Premier League this season, more than any other player in the division and 12 ahead of his nearest rival.
Fans used this as evidence of just how great he is and responded in mass on social media. We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
He’s always top of this league, breaks up so much play. The difference this season which is making him stand out more. He’s winning it and then passing it to Gomes who is so creative rather than Davies who turns round and passes it backwards or gives it away again.
