HYS: Should Digne start ahead of Baines for Everton?

Marco Silva tried to put his stamp on the Everton team when he brought in a handful of signings in the summer transfer window.

One of those new faces was left-back Lucas Digne from Barcelona, where he made 46 appearances, scoring two goals and creating three assists.

Since making the move to Goodison Park, the Frenchman has had to fight for his position against veteran Leighton Baines, who at the age of 33 is reaching the latter stages of his career.

During Baines’s injury absence last season, it became clear that the left-back position was a problem area with regards to cover.

Predominantly right-footed Cuco Martina was asked to fill in, but he struggled to thrive on his less favoured side of the pitch.

Digne’s arrival was met with joy but he has had to settle for a bit-part role at the moment.

However, after playing the entirety of Everton’s EFL Cup tie against Rotherham United, he started the 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town in the Premier League at the weekend.

Digne showed glimpses of quality, but still has a way to impress, and with that in mind, should Silva be starting the left-back on a regular basis?
