Everton clashed heads with Fleetwood Town at Highbury Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to secure a positive result on the road in the second round of the EFL Cup. The Toffees made a good start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 28th minute courtesy of Demarai Gray’s right-footed goal. The Merseyside club sat on their lead well and managed to get to the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Frank Lampard’s men were solid in the second half and deserves credit for grinding out a 1-0 win away from home.

Let’s take a look at how each Everton player performed during the match against Fleetwood Town.

GK: Asmir Begovic – 7.5/10

The Toffees goalie made a few important saves at the back and secured an impressive clean sheet tonight.

RB: Nathan Patterson – 7/10

Patterson was solid at the back and was a real threat in the opponent’s half. However, he lasted only 63 minutes before being taken off.

CB: Seamus Coleman – 6.5/10

He was good on the ball and made a couple of crucial clearances on the defensive third of the field.

CB: Michael Keane – 7/10

Keane cleared the danger when needed and made a couple of decent turns with the ball from the back.

CB: Reece Welch – 6.5/10

He was not afraid to put his foot through the ball and would be happy after getting some valuable playing time under his belt.

LB: Ruben Vinagre – 6/10

He struggled to make an impact in both halves and produced a lackluster display on the left flank.

CM: Dwight McNeil – 6.5/10

McNeil caused a few headaches for the opposition but failed to find the back of the net.

CM: Alex Iwobi – 8/10

Iwobi ran the show at the centre of the park and engineered some promising chances in the final third. He ended the game with an assist to his name.

CM: Amadou Onana – 7.5/10

The Belgian talent anchored the midfield with conviction and was a threat going forward.

ST: Demarai Gray – 7.5/10

Gray was a constant menace in the final third and scored the only goal of the game in the 28th minute.

ST: Salomon Rondon – 6/10

He was quiet for most of the game and never looked like he had a goal in him.

Substitutes:

CB: James Tarkowski – 6/10

Tarkowski added more bite and steel to Lampard’s defence.

CM: Lewis Warrington – 6.5/10

He made one good chance in the final third.

CAM: Stanley Mills – 6/10

Mills hardly got a chance to score.
