Everton fans pleased with Holgate performance

Everton made it four points from two matches at the start of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign with a 2-1 win over Southampton at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

Theo Walcott and Richarlison were on the scoresheet for the Toffees, who managed to hold on for all three points despite Danny Ings halving the deficit on Merseyside.

Mason Holgate was given the opportunity to start at centre-back for Everton due to the fact that Yerry Mina is still not ready following his move from Barcelona.

Holgate has also profited from Phil Jagielka’s red card against Wolverhampton Wanderers on the opening weekend of the new campaign.

The 21-year-old might well find it difficult to secure regular football this season due to the club’s investment in the summer transfer window.

However, the 6ft ace put in a positive performance against Southampton, and the Everton fans were pleased with his work.
