Everton fans have hailed new signing Idrissa Gueye on Twitter after his man-of-the-match debut against Tottenham.
Gueye moved to Goodison Park from Aston Villa after the Merseyside club activated his £7.1 million release clause.
Everton supporters were extremely satisfied with the midfielder’s performance in the 1-1 draw against Tottenham on Saturday as they lauded his energy in the middle of the park.
After conceding 59 goals last season, the fans are now hopeful that, following the additions of Gueye and £9million defender Ashley Williams, manager Ronald Koeman is putting the foundations in place for a solid defensive unit.
Here is a selection of the messages from Everton fans on Twitter:

Conclude from today that Idrissa Gueye is boss, we need to buy at least x2 strikers & a creative midfielder, & maybe we dont need a GK #EFC

What did everyone think of McCarthy? Not a big improvement but better. Gueye took all the pressure off and allowed him to go. #EFC

Gueye will now travel with his teammates to the Hawthorns next Saturday as the ex-Villa man takes on West Brom looking for his first win as an Everton player.
There will be huge expectations for the Toffees this season as fans crave for European football after two below-par league campaigns.
