Plaudits flood in for Everton youngsters after upsetting Manchester City

Everton’s future looks bright if Sunday’s result against Manchester City is anything to go by.

Youngsters Tom Davies and Ademola Lookman got on the scoresheet as Ronald Koeman’s side humiliated the two-time Premier League champions in a 4-0 rout.

Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas put the Toffees two up against Pep Guardiola’s men after 47 minutes, and then the teenagers took over.

Davies, who has been part of Everton’s academy since the age of 11, led a counter-attack from the edge of his own box before eventually being played in at the other end.

While in City’s penalty area, the 18-year-old finished off the clinical move by clipping the ball over goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and into the back of the net.

Lookman, who only signed for the Toffees from Charlton Athletic less than a fortnight ago, had a bit of fortune in his goal.

A poor clearance from John Stones resulted in the ball rebounding off Seamus Coleman and into the path of 19-year-old Lookman, who slotted home from close range.

After the game, fans were full of praise for the teens, tipping the pair to be future Everton stars.
