Becoming a bit of a formality this, two goals from James' to kill the game along with an assist to get us back into it on the stroke of half-time. The commentators were saying before the game that he is the player with the most chances created in the entire league, which is something that you wouldn't even question. I've not seen a player like him in my lifetime, the absolute heartbeat of our squad and IMO was once again the best player on the pitch. As much as he seems to be getting votes every week he deserves it, another world-class afternoon.

Could so easily have been Mina though, I've been a big fan of his since he signed so made up with his afternoon today, was an absolute rock at the back and got us back in the game with a lovely header. Bonus points for the dance moves too.

Quick word for the Doucoure Brothers too, thought they looked poor against West Ham but bossed our midfield today.

I had Coleman down for it initially then Doucouré started bossing things and then Mina snatched it with that incredible clearance off the line then last ditch tackle. Hopefully him and James can come up with a good excuse to skip the international duty.

I went for Davies, he came in for Allan and had some big boots to fill, and he never let us down. 
So pleased for him he has proved there’s a place for him at this club even if that is covering for Allan, he can only learn and get better by being around Allan and in 2-3 years could be owning that spot for himself.

Covered well at RB too, just kept it simple.

Little surprised at the results so far. Mina was excellent to be sure but James had 2 goals and an assist and isn’t close. I guess it’s to be expected.

He gets mentioned for how good he was.  Got to be honest mina was brilliant today, saved us a few times, played the ball well from the back.

Tough thing with James is he only works hard off the ball for the first 45 minutes, after that he’s walking around.  I get it he’s essentially our Messi and when called for he does what he’s supposed to.  For me doucoure worked his ass off non stop whistle to whistle so that deserves the motm.  He allowed James to not have to track back by his work rate (same with Mina).

Like someone said in another thread that was probably his worst game for us so far. Not bad for 2 goals and an assist. 

At this rate we can only hope its all downhill from here for him.

Yeah, that was me. Thought his general touches where landing the team in trouble at times especially in the first half, he just seemed of the pace a little, then he goes and calmly puts two goals in the back of the net like he was on the training ground. He definately needs a dacoure or allan around him, but fortunately we have them, so great team balance.

Yeah there was a bad touch or two and a stray pass but he was still immense in his build up play. I still cant believe how good of a player we have.

Could have been any player bar Pickford and Walcott really.

Went for Mina as he was immense, but could easily be Tom Davies, James, Doucouré, all were so impressive.

Massive shout out to Iwobi and Siggy who, like Tom Davies look so much better in sides with a top manager and better players around them. For the first time in a long time we have a very talented squad with lots of options for Carlo to choose from.

James.

Two goals and an assist, and just looked silky as fuck.

Big shout to Mina. I'm not a fan of his at all, but he was a rock back there today.

Everton keep this up and I'm going to turn into an alcoholic.

How have you not turned into an alcoholic already after the last few years?

I am very surprised too. He did OK and he certainly bailed out Pickford with one great challenge but he was light years from Allan (on past performances) and Doucoure (yesterday). Him and Siggy would have been in big trouble without Doucoure yesterday IMO.

Whilst I have sympathy with him having to fill in at RB but he was caught out a couple of times too, one of which led to a threatening attack. 

I'm especially critical of that position as its a position I think is crucial. There was a noticeable improvement when Delph came on which then lapsed again as we got towards the end of the game.
