Everton fans have been looking back on the career of left-back Leighton Baines as he celebrated his 34th birthday on Wednesday.
The Englishman has been at the club since 2007 and has become one of Goodison Park’s longest-serving tenants in recent years.
Do you want to see Carlo Ancelotti at Goodison Park?
After signing from Wigan Athletic for £5m, the quality and characteristics that he has brought to the team over the years have made him become a fan-favourite, with some believing that he deserves a place in the Team of the Decade.
Here are a few of the moments that have turned Baines into an Everton icon:
