After a handful of lacklustre performances up front from Everton’s strikers, manager Marco Silva decided to make a change.
Richarlison joined the club in the summer from Watford for a figure in the region of £40m.
The Brazilian predominantly plays as a winger, but after his goalscoring antics, Silva experimented by playing the 21-year-old up front.
Richarlison has been positioned in the new role for Everton’s last three Premier League games, and in that time he has scored once and created a single assist.
With the January transfer window approaching, Silva may consider dipping into the market to recruit a new striker.
However, for the time being he has Cenk Tosun, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Oumar Niasse.

Everton will be aiming to bounce back this weekend following their 2-1 loss to Manchester United on Sunday.
Next up for the Toffees is a home clash against Brighton at Goodison Park.
Would Richarlison be more effective if he was brought back to the wing?
