Tom Davies put in a solid performance as Everton won away to West Ham United on Sunday.
Having played just four minutes in the win over Arsenal and then watched on from the bench as Everton lost to Aston Villa, Davies was recalled to the starting line-up at the weekend as Andre Gomes dropped to the bench.
How did Davies fare at the London Stadium?
Davies earned a SofaScore rating of 7.0 for his display at the London Stadium, completing 23 of his 26 passes – an accuracy of 88% – and both of his long balls found their target. The 22-year-old won three of his six ground duels and pitched in with two clearances, two interceptions and one block.
The victory, secured by Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s first-half strike, moved Everton to within a point of seventh-placed Tottenham Hotspur with a game in hand, and Davies will be hopeful of keeping his place for their trip to Villa Park on Thursday evening.
Everton’s official account tweeted ‘VIVA TOM DAVIES’ on Monday morning, and here’s how supporters reacted, with many calling out Carlo Ancelotti for overlooking the 22-year-old in recent fixtures.
Tom Davies proves a point to Ancelotti
“Yet Gomes will start over him against Villa. VIVA TOM DAVIESSS”
“Should never have been dropped recently over Gomes”
“Yep! Shouldn’t have been dropped, especially for Delph. Get in”
“Should never ever ever have Gomes or Delph ahead of him”
“Has to start every game”
“Baffling how he’s sat out for weeks while Delph was the midfielder of choice off the bench then Davies starts over him today. Makes no sense”
