“He’s the player we’ve needed for 30 years” – Many Everton fans rave about “absolute monster”

As debuts go, Allan’s first game in the Premier League for Everton was something to behold.

The midfielder joined the Toffees from Serie A giants Napoli, and already looks like a superb piece of business from the likes of Marcel Brands and Carlo Ancelotti.

The little Brazilian ran the game from the middle of the park, screening the Everton back-line with ease, and making incisive passes into the likes of James Rodriguez and Richarlison out wide.

As per Sofascore, he made four tackles, two interceptions, and won an impressive eight duels on the ground – it was the perfect example of how to play the anchor man role.

And after seeing his display, Everton fans took to Twitter to rave about the former Napoli man.

A couple of Toffees fans admitted that whilst James was impressive, Allan looked immense in the engine room, and that he was “another level”.

If his display against Spurs is a taster of what’s to come, then Everton fans have every right to be very excited.

Rodriguez may have been the player Toffees supporters may have been thinking about keeping a close eye on before the game, and whilst the Colombian absolutely impressed, Allan’s industry and composure in the middle set the tone.

Ancelotti would have been left grinning from ear to ear at his new signing’s performance.
