Some Everton fans have been reacting on social media to a recent post by the club, lauding Richarlison’s performance against Newcastle United on Saturday.

The Brazilian started on the left-wing at St. James’ Park as new boss Carlo Ancelotti continued to get to grips with the squad now at his disposal, having favoured Richarlison on the right-hand flank at home to Burnley on Boxing Day.

Richarlison did not directly impact the scoring against the Clarets, but delivered an excellent low cross for Dominic Calvert-Lewin to scramble home the winning effort at the weekend.

It was from the right-wing that Richarlison distributed the ball which Calvert-Lewin would meet to strike his eighth league goal of the campaign, after Theo Walcott dispossessed Andy Carroll and freed the Brazilian to speed down the touchline.

Not only did Richarlison assist Calvert-Lewin’s match-winner, but the 22-year-old also created two further chances to beat Martin Dubravka and won nine duels, which the club saw fit to celebrate after the game.

Richarlison attempted 13 ground duels and four aerial contests on Tyneside at the weekend, per Sofa Score statistics, of which he won eight and one respectively.

He also recorded 54 touches, 18 accurate passes, two on-target shots, completed two of four dribbles and penned three successful tackles, but lost possession 19 times, committed one foul and was adjudged as offside once.

The £54million-rated star – recently tipped as one of five players on Manchester United’s January transfer shortlist – registered three clearances, blocked one shot and made three successful tackles, as well.

Richarlison now has eight goals and four assists in all competitions this season, with six and three coming in the Premier League respectively.

Here are some of the messages shared as fans reacted to the club’s post celebrating the ‘relentless’ Richarlison’s performance at Newcastle…
