Everton get an enforcer in Schneiderlin

Signed from Manchester United yesterday, Morgan Schneiderlin is the latest big name to arrive at Everton and fans will be hopeful the Frenchman can improve the performances of the Toffees.

Sat seventh in the Premier League, around the sort of position they’d expect to be, Everton still need a vast improvement if they are to secure a place in European competition next year and their third round exit to Leicester City in the FA Cup was a huge blow.

In Schneiderlin though, Everton have secured the services of a player who can definitely improve their ranks and dominant the midfield in forthcoming matches- as this statistic shows.

With more tackles and interceptions in the Premier League than any other midfielder in the Premier League since 2012/13, Schneiderlin possesses the sort of attributes that Everton need in their midfield- especially with Gareth Barry not getting any younger.

Still 27, Everton should get a few years of decent service from the French midfielder.
