'Excellent', 'Best player on the pitch - Everton fans drool over one player in win v Newcastle
Everton collected all three points against Newcastle United in the Premier League on Monday night in what was a pretty dour game of football at Goodison Park.
Nonetheless, supporters were pleased with the display of Morgan Schneiderlin, who has come to the fore in the last few matches after a largely disappointing campaign all round.
He played so well that he was singled out by manager Sam Allardyce post-match who was full of praise for the Frenchman’s display.
The 28-year-old had to leave the field of play just after the interval with a dead leg but that didn’t stop fans from naming him their man of the match after the win.
One supporter said: “Credit where it’s due. He has been excellent. About time!”
And another added: “Schneiderlin is amazing when his heads on straight.”

As a result of the 1-0 win, the Blues moved up to eighth in the table.
The one moment of excitement came in the 51st minute of play when a Yannick Bolasie shot was deflected into the path of Theo Walcott, who took a touch and shot his effort into the roof of the net to put the Blues ahead.
Here is a selection of Twitter reactions from Toffees supporters about the former Manchester United midfielder:

Good half, just missing final third quality but it will come a bit of magic

Another good performance by MS. Midfield went to pot when he went off. Baffled by set pieces either WE was on them or stood next to taker when he would have been better employed on the edge of the box to pick up any clearances. 2 great crosses from YB nothing else.
