Everton fans have been reacting to Anthony Gordon’s social media post about Leighton Baines, and how he looked up to him as a young boy.
The youngster hit yet another milestone against Leicester City on Wednesday, as he made his home debut during the Carabao Cup quarter-final exit to the Foxes.
He was brought on in the second half and helped bring the Toffees back from two goals down to level the game in the 91st minute of normal time.
Despite losing on penalties, it is a night that Gordon will not forget having grown up as a fan of the club.
His post summed his feelings up perfectly towards his hero, Leighton Baines.
The difference 7 years can make, an idol turned into a team mate 🙏🏼💙 pic.twitter.com/jeCD0SRjar
