From Outside The Starting XI To One Of Silva’s First Names: Everton Could Improve Even More With Him

Everton have made an impressive start to this campaign despite struggling to find consistency on a weekly basis. One of the main reasons for their recent run of favourable results has been the eye-catching form of Lucas Digne. The French full-back has managed to nail down a permanent place in the Toffees first-team ahead of Leighton Baines, who had been one of the best left-backs in the Premier League over the past decade.

What Makes Digne Such An Integral Member Of The Everton Team?

The 25-year-old has been a wonderful outlet for the Merseyside club down the left flank, and his delivery from set-pieces has mostly been excellent. He has also been defensively sound which makes him a valuable asset in Marco Silva’s starting XI.

The Meaux-born player arrived at Goodison Park from Barcelona earlier this summer in search of regular first-team opportunities. Digne has made seven appearances for the Toffees this season and has two assists to his name across all competitions.

The Everton full-back is a capable defender who is known for his attacking prowess in the opposition half. He has a terrific left-foot and packs a lot of power with his shots from range. Digne is also a willing worker and has a habit of refusing to give up even when his team is not playing well which is why he might be one of the first names in Silva’s teamsheet nowadays.

Can The French Defender Keep Up His Impressive Form This Season?

The French international can improve even more which could help the Toffees push for a top half finish in the league standings. It is clear that Digne is playing with a lot of confidence and enjoying his football under Marco Silva. As long as the Everton backline can sort things out defensively, there is a good chance that the Merseyside outfit would have a solid campaign this term.

Digne has already displayed that he can keep up a high level of performance on a consistent basis so we can expect him to flourish in the coming weeks after the international break and get even better as the season progresses.
