Everton: Fans swoon over Allan’s display against West Brom

Everton: Fans swoon over Allan’s display against West Brom - Everton News

Dominic Calvert-Lewin may have taken the headlines with a hat-trick for Everton this afternoon, yet the more understated contribution of one of his team-mates garnered glowing praise from many Toffees fans.

Summer signing Allan was playing his first Premier League game at Goodison Park and it was one to remember as he helped his team to a 5-2 drubbing of West Brom which, for a few hours at least, has put them top of the table.

The £21m acquisition from Napoli got through a mountain of dirty work in Everton’s midfield, winning five tackles and eight duels as well as completing 76 of his 85 passes. He also recorded one shot on target and found a team-mate with four of his five long balls this afternoon. [via Sofascore]

Adam Jones of the Liverpool Echo hailed the 29-year-old’s performance afterwards, saying that he “forever chased down West Brom’s midfielders when they were in possession and completed a number of important tackles in the centre of the pitch”.

Plenty of Everton fans on Twitter were quick to laud the Brazilian’s “sublime” display, with one fan already believing he is “much better than Gana”, a reference to ex-Toffees midfielder Idrissa Gueye who famously won the most tackles of any Premier League player in the 2016/17 season.
