It’s been a long night of celebration for the Everton fans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern after they watched their side absolutely thump Manchester City at Goodison Park.
In many ways, the 4-0 win over Pep Guardiola’s not-so-slick City was a distinct highlight of their season so far as Ronald Koeman’s first season in charge of the Toffees reaches another high point.
It’s been a bizarre campaign for the Dutchman since joining from Southampton with a strong start to life in the Premier League followed up by some frankly dreadful form and performances on the whole in the latter stages of 2016.
After promises of big investment over the course of the summer, Koeman’s open criticism of the club’s transfer policy hinted at troubles behind the scenes amid their regime already. Still, since his comments, they’ve welcomed the likes of Morgan Schneiderlin to Merseyside.
Not only has the Frenchman touched down at Everton, but two of the heroes from the thumping of City brought a new energy to the side.
With that in mind, here are THREE talents at Goodison Park to save both Ronald Koeman and Farhad Moshiri an awful lot of money.
