Loads of Everton fans have been running the rule over their rampant win against Fulham, and they’re absolutely delighted with the display of Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Everton have shown some real promise under Marco Silva, but until Saturday the Toffees had yet to put it all together when it matters most.
That’s exactly what happened on Saturday though, as Sigurdsson’s brace fired Silva’s side to a 3-0 win over newly promoted Fulham.
The Icelandic international has been struggling for end product in the opening part of the season, but made up for his second half missed penalty with two beautiful goals.

His penalty cannoned off the cross bar with the score at 0-0, but he atoned for his mistake just a few moments later with a cultured finish into the bottom corner.
Cenk Tosun grabbed his first goal of the season to make it 2-0, and Sigurdsson rounded off his display with the third after some lovely play from new signing Bernard.
While Michael Keane, Idrissa Gueye and Richarlison were all superb, Sigurdsson was the star of the show, taking six shots, creating a remarkable five chances and also making four tackles.
