It’s been an up and down season so far for Everton, but it’s fair to say that the Toffees put in a spirited display at the weekend against Liverpool. The Merseyside derby has thrown up more than a few surprises over the years, and the game had particular significance this time around.
Indeed, with Liverpool leading the way in the Premier League title race for much of the season, the fixture gave Everton the chance to give Jurgen Klopp’s men a setback – and that’s exactly what they did. A strong, robust performance from the Toffees saw the game end 0-0, which for Everton at least, was a good result.
This result was largely achieved by the strength in which the club defended. It was a fantastic display at the back for Marco Silva’s men, and 24-year-old Kurt Zouma was at the heart of all of it.
Zouma has enjoyed a good season over at Everton this term, but he’s only on loan, and with displays like that which he offered on Sunday, it’s no surprise that lots of fans want to see him stay at the club long-term.
Indeed, following the game, loads of Everton supporters have taken to Twitter to demand exactly that. See below:
