Everton earned an excellent point away to Chelsea in the English Premier League on Sunday, holding them to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Frustrating big performers like Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata, the Toffees’ defence really played out of their skin across the 90 minutes, with no-one earning more plaudits than summer signing Lucas Digne.
Signed in August for a reported fee of £18m, the left-back has emerged as one of the most consistent left-backs in the league, with many Everton supporters believing they couldn’t have signed a better player for the position.
With Leighton Baines entering the late stages of his career, it was important the club hit a home run with regards to his replacement and it seems that Digne is that man.
He was superb at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and if he can produce more performances like that he’ll become one of the most popular players at Goodison Park.
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his display…
Worried if we’d be able to replace baines quickly and adequately but we’ve done more than that. #Digne has been excellent since his arrival. Deceptively strong and good going backwards and forwards….. superb signing. #everton #efc

Lucas Digne at £12m is an absolute steal, the lad is class week in a week out! Perfect for us.
