Silva has assembled an Everton team that is capable of making supporters proud

Everton have picked up four points from their first two Premier League fixtures after a 2-2 draw against Wolves which was followed by a 2-1 win over Southampton.

And, while racking up points is the most important thing at the end of the day, Everton supporters will also be glad with how their team have been playing in general.

The Breakdown

The Goodison Park faithful were left disgruntled with the style of football former manager Sam Allardyce had implemented when he succeeded Ronald Koeman last November, but will be pleased with what they have seen so far under Marco Silva, who is determined to make a lasting impression in Merseyside.

Speaking to Everton’s official club website, Silva said: “[I want to produce a team] that makes Evertonians proud.

And the Portuguese coach is on his way to doing that. With the addition of Richarlison, Silva has given Everton supporters something that they adore: a wide player capable of terrorising full-backs on the flanks of the Goodison Park pitch.

The Brazilian has started life as an Everton player in excellent fashion having netted twice against Wolves on his first competitive appearance for the club before finding the back of the net again versus Southampton on his Goodison Park debut.

It is not just Richarlison who has shown promise in attack, though. Everton, as a whole, look more of a threat in offensive phases of play.

The ball is being moved around faster, better chances are being created and players are getting themselves into more dangerous positions.

It is, of course, still early days. But, as things stand, Silva is on course to delivering the team both himself and supporters want to see at Goodison Park.
