Everton fans react as target Joe Bryan shines in Bristol City win

Reported Everton target Joe Bryan scored as Bristol City recorded a famous 2-1 win against Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup at Ashton Gate on Wednesday night, and Toffees fans were quick to have their say on the left-back’s display.

According to reports by Football Insider on Wednesday, the Merseyside outfit and Premier League rivals Newcastle United are ready to go head-to-head in the battle to sign the 24-year-old during the January transfer window.

The attack-minded full-back – who can also play as a wing-back or further forward – netted from a brilliant strike against the Red Devils on Wednesday to set his side on their way to the victory, and he now has four goals and two assists to his name in 24 appearances in all competitions this term.

Everton supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on Bryan’s display, and while one described him as the “perfect replacement for Leighton Baines”, another said he “would fit straight in”.
