Everton fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight with Mason Holgate, with many suggesting he was the Man of the Match against Southampton.
Officially, Tom Davies was the club’s Man of the Match, but as Holgate once again showed his worth, some sections of the Everton faithful believe he was the true hero on Saturday.
The defender once again registered an assist for the club, which now brings him onto two assists and one goal in his last four appearances.
In this time, the 23-year-old has also kept a clean sheet against Watford and looked much more solid at the back than Michael Keane has.
At St. Mary’s last weekend, Holgate had an array of impressive statistics to boast. He managed to make three tackles, played 11 accurate long balls, and completed four clearances.
After putting together this fantastic display, fans rightfully so believe he was the Man of the Match.
One supporter said he is “getting better with every game”, whilst another fan touched on the brilliance of his distribution out from the back.
Here’s what some of the Everton faithful have had to say about Holgate…
Holgate for me, every pass he did was superb, tackling was great, got an assist as well. Brilliant performance yet again

Mason Holgate. Kept his standards up throughout the whole match. Getting better with every game. Special mention for Tom Davies as well. His 1st half was superb. Thought he disappeared, along with the rest of them, for 20 mins after HT but came good again towards the end.
