It seems like it is only a matter of time before Anthony Gordon gets a chance in the Everton first-team, and the youngster showed again last night why Marco Silva should be considering him this season.

The attacking midfielder nabbed his sixth goal of the season last night in the Toffees Premier League International Cup game against PSV, with Gordon scoring the opener in what was to be a 1-1 result for Everton’s U-23 side.
With Gordon yet again finding the back of the net, plenty of Everton supporters on social media yet again demanded Silva to bring the teenager into the first-team fold after another great performance from the youngster, with fans getting restless that the Portuguese manager is yet to promote the 18-year-old into the senior squad.
Here’s what Everton fans had to say about Gordon’s goal on Twitter, with the majority of the conversation being about how the 18-year-old needs to be promoted to the first-team…
