Many Everton fans are loving footage that has emerged of summer signing Ben Godfrey, following their huge victory over Liverpool on the weekend.
The footage posted on Twitter by @EvertonNewsFeed shows the defender showing his pride after the final whistle as he celebrates the win. It was the first time that the club have won at Anfield since 1999 and you could see how much the match meant to the player. This passion is exactly what the fan base love to see and it has seen many fans fall in love with Godfrey following the game.
It has been a very solid very campaign for Godfrey since joining from Norwich. In his 17 Premier League appearances, he has managed an average of 3.1 clearances, 1.4 interceptions and 1.7 tackles a game (WhoScored).
BBC Sport pundit Phil McNulty praised the Everton defence in his post-match analysis following the match at Anfield as he said: “Michael Keane was a colossus in defence while Ben Godfrey, signed for £25m from Norwich City, has been a revelation”
Godfrey is still only 23, so has bags of potential and fans of the club could see him as an integral part of the team for many seasons. If he keeps performing like he has done, then the club have a great defender in their ranks.
Here is how Everton fans reacted to the footage:
“How’s that old saying go? Once Everton touches you…”
“You love to see it”
“Give him the armband”
“I absolutely love that man.”
“Haven’t stopped smiling since!”
