Everton: Mason Holgate’s defensive duel success rate warrants huge praise from supporters after Watford win

Everton: Mason Holgate’s defensive duel success rate warrants huge praise from supporters after Watford win - Everton

According to football scouting writer David Alexander Hughes on Twitter, Everton defender Mason Holgate has acquired a defensive duel success rate of 72.81% – better than the likes of Caglar Soyuncu, Harry Maguire and even Virgil Van Dijk this campaign. 

Holgate, who has seemingly worked his way into Carlo Ancelotti’s favour at centre-back alongside Yerry Mina in the back four, has arguably impressed this season in most aspects – amassing 1.7 tackles per game over former defensive favourite Michael Keane (1.3), as per WhoScored.com.

The Englishman also impressed during Everton’s dramatic 3-2 comeback away to Watford, winning 5/6 ground duels and 5/7 aerial battles according to SofaScore. Now, as per the statistical revelation from Hughes, the 23-year-old has also gone on to complete a duel success rate of 72.81% which eclipses even that of Van Dijk’s numbers.

As a result, Toffees supporters have flocked to praise the defender for his arguable consistency and panache – here’s what they had to say on social media.
