For weeks now, questions have been raised over Everton’s options up front, with some suggesting that the club should jump into the January market for a new striker.
Marco Silva brought in plenty of fresh talent in the summer window, but he opted against strengthening the forward line.
Cenk Tosun has been the man the manager has turned to, but he struggled to find the breakthrough in his first six Premier League outings.
On Saturday, Dominic Calvert-Lewin was selected to lead the line against Fulham, but it was Tosun who nicked some of the headlines as he scored after replacing the attacker in the 55th minute.
The Turkish international nabbed the Toffees’ second of the day in what turned out to be a 3-0 triumph at Goodison Park.
The forward’s goal will now give Silva something to think about, and plenty of fans have been posting their thoughts on Tosun via Twitter.
Did Tosun score today or was I watching something else ?

You look through Tosun’s career both club and country he’s always scored goals, yes he lacks pace but he finishes with either foot and his bonce.
That goal today will hopefully do his confidence the world of good.#Cenk ?

Cenk tosun has to start hold up play is brilliant. Against Bournemouth an wolves he done the same. DCL offers absolutely nothing at this level am afraid. #EFC
