'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.

It was a disjointed display from the home side as the Blues struggled to get any rhythm into their game and string any number of passes together.

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:
