Morgan Schneiderlin delivers Twitter verdict after Everton win v Sunderland

By Danny Wright

Morgan Schneiderlin has praised his teammates after Everton’s 2-0 victory over struggling Sunderland on Saturday.

The 27-year-old said on his personal Twitter account that he was happy for Idrissa Gueye, who scored his first goal for Everton in the 40th minute, and Romelu Lukaku, who equalled Duncan Ferguson’s record of 60 Premier League goals for the Toffees.

The former Manchester United and Southampton man was also voted man of the match by the club’s fans after the game and praised the supporters for creating a raucous atmosphere at Goodison Park.

“Delighted with the win. Happy for Gana for his first goal as an Everton player, and Lukaku for equalling the record. The fans top again,” Schneiderlin said.

Ronald Koeman signed the Frenchman for a fee of £22million from United in January.

After a brilliant spell on the south coast for Southampton, he struggled for first-team football at Old Trafford and was subsequently shifted on by Jose Mourinho.

The midfielder has made six appearances for Everton since joining and is yet to lose a game with the Merseyside club.

Schneiderlin is a current France international and has picked up 15 caps playing for Les Bleus.

He failed to make an appearance his national side as they reached the Euro 2016 final in the summer despite being named in the squad of 23.
