A point is a point, as they say.
I have to be honest though, Everton were awful.
In the spirit of the blog , let’s look at the positives. We fielded an awfully young team and we didn’t lose. I thought David Luiz had a fine game, I feel that when he is on the ball he brings an urgency and progression that drives the team forward as a unit. Chambers was solid and for once we saw a CB pairing that worked well together.
Xhaka once again showed that his distractors rate his performance before a ball is kicked, some of his long passing was sublime and he ended the game with a 90%+ passing,he also made some important clearances and interceptions. He is a fine player and I hope Mikel can convince him to stay.
Amn and Saka did not let themselves down in any way,both looking dangerous on the rare occasions that the ventured forward. I suspect they were told to be conservative.
No need to be critical of any of the other players because all we can ask is that the give their all, i think they did, no lack of effort from anyone.
Mikel has a big job, but I am convinced he is the right man for us.
