Everton player ratings vs Leicester City: Who impressed and who did not?

Everton continued their winning run with a 2-1 victory over Leicester City at King Power Stadium after a 3-0 win against Fulham last weekend. The Toffees registered their third win of the season and moved up to 10th in the standings with 12 points from their first eight games in the Premier League.

Richarlison gave Everton the lead when he slotted in Bernard’s perfectly laid pass in the 7th minute. Marco Silva’s team played some impressive free-flowing football and kept the pressure on the home side but Ricardo Pereira found an equalizer for the Foxes, much against the run of play in the 40th minute.

Both teams looked to throw caution to the winds in the second half but it looked as if the game was heading to a draw till the 77th minute. Gylfi Sigurdsson, who scored a brace in the last match, produced a moment of magic and scored from a screaming long-range effort.

Everton player ratings


Jordan Pickford (7/10)


England’s No.1 did not have much to do between the sticks as the Foxes had only two shots on target and he was hardly at fault for the goal.

Jonjoe Kenny (6/10)

The youngster put up a decent display at the back. He was a bit sloppy with his passing at times but kept things tight on the whole. However, he did not track back to prevent the equalizer.

Kurt Zouma (6/10)

The Frenchman had a mixed day in the heart of the defence. He kept the attackers at bay with some good blocks but gave the ball away in crucial areas.

Michael Keane (6/10)

He was pretty composed at the back and worked hard to preserve his the team’s lead. However, he was troubled by Jamie Vardy’s pace on a couple of occasions.

Lucas Digne (6.5/10)

The Frenchman kept things tight at the back and contributed to the attacking play forward.

Idrissa Gana Gueye (7/10)

The Senegalese international put up a good display in central midfield. He passed the ball around nicely and cut out the attacks with some crucial interceptions.’

Tom Davies (6.5/10)

He played an important role alongside Gueye and kept the ball ticking in the midfield.

Theo Walcott (7/10)

The former Arsenal man was a lively presence down the right and troubled the opposition time and again with his pace. He linked up the play well but could have done better with his end product.

Bernard (7.5/10)

The Brazilian teed up Richarlison for the first goal and always posed a threat down the left with his pace and dribbling skills.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (8.5/10)

Was involved in the build-up play on many occasions and capped off an impressive performance with a magical long-range effort which proved to be the winner.

Richarlison (8.5/10)

The Brazilian excelled in his new role as the centre-forward. He worked hard and held up the ball well to allow his teammates to build the play. He also scored the opening goal with a clinical finish.
