Everton went into Saturday’s clash with Crystal Palace with their new 19-year-old striker on the bench, although the fans were eagerly awaiting Moise Kean’s debut following his £25.1m move from Juventus.
65′ Second sub for #EFC – and it’s a second debut!
Moise Kean ON
Come on, Moise lad! #CRYEVE

With 25 minutes of the game left the Italian teenager was brought into the action, to the delight of the travelling supporters, although he failed to have an impact on the scoreline. That was mostly down to his lack of minutes, though, as he only managed 11 minutes of action before Morgan Schneiderlin was sent off and 25 in total.
European football saw what the Italian can do last season, though, as he bagged six Serie A goals for Juventus, including four in consecutive matches in late March and early April, Transfermarkt. When the Italian gets a run of starts he should be able to show what he can do, but in his short debut on Saturday he did enough to earn a respectable 6/10 rating from The Liverpool Echo.

Marco Silva’s side face Watford at Goodison Park next week, and that game will provide Kean with another chance to open his Everton account.
