Everton produced a slick performance in the English Premier League on Saturday to defeat Crystal Palace 3-1 at Goodison Park.
After being on the receiving end of a thrashing away to Arsenal last week, fans were looking for their team to bounce back this weekend and Sam Allardyce’s side responded, rushing to a 3-0 lead before their visitors scored a late consolation penalty.
Gylfi Sigurdsson, Oumar Niasse and Tom Davies were the goal heroes on the afternoon but it was another player that left supporters with their jaws dropped – new signing Theo Walcott.
The former Arsenal man was a constant threat throughout, combining well in the final third with his teammates and showing exactly why the club shelled out the money to sign him in January.
The Toffees haven’t made a tonne of successful signings over the last 12 months but Walcott is certainly showing a lot of promise and fans are overjoyed with his impact so far.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Saturday performance…

Theo Walcott is far to good for Everton, well this season's Everton for sure. #EFC

Wonder how the blues saying they'd never have Walcott in the team are feeling about him now?

Theo Walcott, something we have actually got very, very right 💙 #EFC

Walcott superb again, just glides past players with ease and the fact he’ll rough it up makes so much space for others. #EFC

Early days, but Theo Walcott looks a class little player. Always thought he was good for arsenal but watching him the past few weeks, he’s even better again!! So quick on the ball! Sigurdsson improving all the time too 👌🏻 #efc

Theo Walcott looks a cut above anything #EFC currently have in their squad. Plays his football at a high level, combining turbo pace with intelligence and composure.
