Carlo Ancelotti could hardly have hoped for a better return to the Premier League for his Everton side.
The Toffees kicked off with a 0-0 draw against now-champions Liverpool before battling to a hard-fought 1-0 win against Norwich. They followed that up yesterday with a 2-1 victory against Leicester City, who are currently third in the table and well in the fight for the Champions League spots.
Richarlison and Gylffi Sigurdsson were the goalscorers against the Foxes and both deserve praise, but Anthony Gordon was arguably the unsung hero for the Goodison Park outfit. The 19-year-old did not have the best of times against Liverpool as he picked up a SofaScore rating of just 6.6, but he made up for it here.
In the end, he managed a more than respectable 7.3 rating and showed plenty of qualities both going forward and at the back. It was his ball into the box that allowed Richarlison to score the opener, whilst he also completed two of his three dribbles and made two key passes (as per Sofascore).
Were you impressed by Anthony Gordon against Leicester?
Defensively he was more than solid, making four tackles and winning eight of his 13 duels. His performance will have been particularly pleasing for Ancelotti, whose unwavering faith has given the youngster a chance to show why he is so highly regarded on Merseyside.
