Everton are facing possibly their worst campaign so far in the Premier League, having won only two of their first seven matches. They are now looking to bounce back and aiming to win their next few fixtures to finish the season in a better position than the one they are currently in.
The Toffees spent well during the summer transfer window to bring in a number of top-class players who had a good season with their former clubs in the last season. One such player is Gylfi Sigurdsson, who almost single-handedly saved his former side Swansea City from relegation with his enigmatic presence in the attacking third and ability to chip in with crucial goals.
The Icelandic attacker joined the Merseyside club for a club record transfer fee in the summer, which brought a lot of hope among the fans to see their side finishing among the top four. Gaffer Ronald Koeman was also much impressed with the kind of form the player was in and was quite sure that his inclusion will help to strengthen his side’s attack this season.
However, Sigurdsson has not been able to play as per expectations so far and has added to the disappointment of the club and their manager. The Iceland international has not been able to score a single goal, neither has he contributed with any assists so far this season in the Premier League. He has infact failed to create one big chance of note in the top flight this season.
Though these are only early days for the player in the new outfit, the club faithful will be expecting him to improve and hit form as soon as possible and bring results to show for his efforts. Given his brilliant form in the last season for Swansea City, it will not be an exaggeration for the Merseysiders to look up to the Iceland international for leading them into a better position in the Premier League.
Sigurdsson has got immense experience, playing for a number of clubs in the Premier League including the likes Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City. He will look to use that experience as much as possible in order to get the best out of himself in the future and utilise it to play a major role to revive the season for his current club.
The Everton faithful will now want to see the back of the hard times that are looming large on Goodison Park in the recent times. They are hopeful that Sigurdsson will make his worth count and will help his side to get out of the danger zone and finish in the desired position by the end of this term.
