The Lowdown: Vital win for Everton
Frank Lampard’s side grabbed a vital 1-0 win in front of their home supporters Goodison Park, their first victory of the top-flight season.
Summer signing Neal Maupay is set to grab most of the headlines with his match-winning goal, but another Toffees player came in with some high praise for his efforts today.
The Latest: Gray praised v West Ham
Taking to Twitter, HLTCO hailed Gray’s performance, calling his £2m move to Merseyside ‘ridiculous’ value for money.
They tweeted: “Demarai Gray costing Everton less than £2m was such a solid piece of business. The lad is a thorn in the side of defenders time and time again. Ridiculous value for money.”
The Verdict: Bargain
Gray is turning out to be an absolute bargain for Everton, backed up by his latest impressive showing a Goodison Park.
The winger won three of his individual duels and also completed two successful dribbles, two key passes and four accurate long balls in the match (SofaScore).
Gray also attempted a mammoth 11 crosses, far more than any other player on the pitch, and as HLTCO stated, he was a constant thorn in the side of West Ham’s defence all day long.
The 26-year-old and his team will now be looking forward to the international break and will look to put in similar performances when they return to club football in early October.
