Everton fans discuss Jean-Philippe Gbamin’s debut against Crystal Palace

Premiership Picks

Some Everton fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Jean-Philippe Gbamin’s debut against Crystal Palace on Saturday, as the Toffees were held to a 0-0 draw by the south Londoners.

Gbamin was signed in a £25m deal from Mainz in the summer as a replacement for Idrissa Gueye, who joined PSG.

The 23-year-old probably wasn’t expecting to come off the bench as soon as he did. Gbamin was stripped and ready for action at half-time after Andre Gomes suffered an injury, and looked a tiny bit rusty having been dispossessed twice and having also had one unsuccessful touch.

In fairness, the Ivory Coast international played at the Africa Cup of Nations during the summer, and his transfer was only made official at the start of August which has left him with little time to acclimatise and gel with his teammates at Everton.

Overall, it wasn’t a shambolic debut from the 6 foot 1 midfielder, who held his own against a hard working Palace side.
