Seamus Coleman praises the attitude of Everton winger Richarlison

He told Everton TV: “As attacking players go, he’s right up there. He made that goal [against Crystal Palace] out of nothing, really. I was watching it from the right-back position and I’m thinking, ‘There is every chance he can get something here. He finished it brilliantly. And you know what, he is so loved in the changing room – he’s a great character. What I enjoy most about him – and I know everybody loves to see the goals – is his work-rate and desire to win.”

The Toffees were languishing in the drop zone when Marco Silva was sacked from the helm. However, they have managed to transform their fortunes over the past few months and they are currently within five points off the top four. Still, they can’t get carried away with the form, considering they have to face Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool over the next four gameweeks.

The Merseyside outfit had a similar schedule during the backend of the previous campaign where they were able to remain unbeaten against the elite teams but they face a tough ask of repeating that feat. The club have definitely improved on the goalscoring under the guidance of manager Carlo Ancelotti but there remains the vulnerability at the back. One of the prime examples was the Newcastle United game last month where they were 2-0 ahead in the second half before conceding two goals in stoppage time.
