There was a lot of optimism surrounding Everton football club during the summer, with the Merseyside outfit making a number of impressive signings.
It would be fair to say that it has been a struggle in the early weeks of the campaign, however, with just one win from their first six Premier League matches.
There have been encouraging signs, but there is no getting away from the fact that Everton have lost their last two Premier League matches in pretty poor fashion.
Indeed, Marco Silva’s side suffered a 3-1 home defeat to West Ham United on September 16 before losing 2-0 at Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.
Richarlison has been very impressive for the club this term, but the performances of Lucas Digne at left-back have also been very well received.

The 25-year-old has managed to edge out Leighton Baines in the XI, and the summer arrival from Barcelona has put in a string of impressive displays in recent weeks.
The Everton fans are quite frustrated at the moment, but it would be fair to say that a number are delighted with Digne’s form.
