‘Proved me wrong’: Everton fans rave about 5ft 10in ace’s performance vs Chelsea

Some sections of Everton fans were impressed with the performance of Richarlison during the Toffees’ 2-0 win over Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Toffees had come into the game following a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Newcastle United on the road, and it appeared that they could face a similar pattern against Maurizio Sarri’s side, who dominated the proceedings until the interval.

Following the break, however, Everton witnessed a significant change in momentum with the increased intensity on the playing field, and this eventually paid dividends with two goals – both of which involved Richarlison.

The Brazil international has been struggling for form since the turn of the year, but he managed to make the difference against the Blues after he pounced on a rebound for the opening goal, before earning the penalty which Gylfi Sigurdsson converted on the second attempt.

Here are some of the reactions to his performance against Chelsea…

With the strike against Chelsea, Richarlison has now scored in back-to-back league games for the Toffees, while his goal was the first against a top-six side since making the switch to the Premier League.
