'Class', 'Outstanding' - Everton fans rave about one player despite loss v Arsenal

By Aramide Oladipo

Everton summer signing Jordan Pickford sent the club’s fans into a frenzy on social media following his impressive performance against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

The 23-year-old was Everton’s best player despite conceding five goals against the Gunners in a 5-2 defeat at Goodison Park.

Fellow new recruit Wayne Rooney opened the scoring before the visitors responded with goals from Nacho Monreal and Mesut Ozil either side of half-time.

The Toffees were reduced to ten men after midfielder Idrissa Gueye was shown a second yellow card before Alexandre Lacazette, Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez sealed the points for Arsene Wenger’s side.

The supporters from the blue half of Merseyside took to social media to praise the goalkeeper’s performance.

Before the Gunners managed to get on the scoresheet, Pickford made a series of stunning saves in the first-half to keep Everton ahead.

However, he was unable to stop Arsenal from running riot especially after the break and recording their first Premier League victory on the road.

The defeat means that the Toffees now find themselves in the bottom three of the table, having lost five of their opening nine league matches.
