Everton had a field day against Fleetwood in their 5-2 Carabao Cup victory last night.
Goals from Richarlison, Alex Iwobi, Bernard and Moise Kean made for a thrilling win to put the Toffees into the next round of the competition.
Should Joao Virginia be given more time in the Everton first team?
Of course, fans are delighted with the performance but are especially impressed with recent recruit Niels Nkounkou. The 19-year-old made his second senior start for his new club and put in a strong performance at left-back.
The France youth international enjoyed a 92% pass success rate as well as completing two tackles and creating a goalscoring opportunity (via Sofascore). But what fans are talking about is his back-heeled assist to set up Kean’s goal.
Everton’s official Twitter has posted a replay of the goal and loads of Blues supporters have flocked to the comments.
One Toffee has described the build up to the goal as ‘unbelievable’ whilst another is in shock at the quality, asking the question ‘is that Everton?’ A third added that it was ‘outrageous’ skill from the defender.

Brilliant goal and the whole move was rather special. Niels has great potential and so does Moise. Everton may have one of the best attacks is the PL and Moise will I believe become a legend at Everton. All he needs is ‘playing time’ and the ability to integrate in the team.
