Everton ended their winless run of games last night after they won 3-0 away at Cardiff City in the Premier League.
A brace from Gylfi Sigurdsson and a Dominic Calvert-Lewin stoppage time goal ensured it was a comfortable victory for Marco Silva’s side as they continue to chase down that spot just outside the top six.
And away from the two goalscorers, last night’s game is one that Morgan Schneiderlin will also be pleased with.
The French midfielder came in from the cold to put in a solid performance and has since come in for praise from Silva.
“Morgan never gives up,” the Everton boss told the Liverpool Echo. “Of course, in some moments he has not been happy or with the same confidence but in the last month he was doing well and showing to me he deserved the chance and so I gave it to him.”
Schneiderlin’s move to Goodison Park has not quite worked out, yet the 29-year-old remains a decent squad option and one Silva should look to utilise if he has no plans on selling.
Take a look at what Everton supporters are saying about Schneiderlin’s recent performance below…
Played well tonight Morgan! Was great to see you play so well, hopefully a lot more of that to come

Keep putting in a shift when you get your chances and you may find a genuine way back into this squad, Morgan.
