Despite trailing Brentford, Everton star singled out for praise following impressive first-half showing
Brentford vs Everton
Everton faced a trip to Brentford in one of several 2 pm Premier League kick-offs on Sunday.
Everton would head into the game on a pretty dire run of form.
The Toffees had lost four and drawn one of their last five league ties before Sunday and, as a result, had slipped into the bottom half of the Premier League table.
Brentford, though, were on a similarly poor run of form. Thomas Frank’s side looked set to emulate the success of recently-promoted Leeds United in 2020/21 following an impressive start to the campaign, which included a win over Arsenal and a draw with Chelsea. However, the Bees had also lost four and drawn one in five before today.
But, at the time of writing, Brentford are leading the clash after Ivan Toney netted a penalty which was awarded following a high foot from Andros Townsend:
Laser sharp focus and precision 🎯

Everton star praised
Despite currently having a pretty poor showing against Brentford, one Everton star has received a fair bit of praise online for his display so far.
That man is Abdoulaye Doucoure, who is playing his first game for the Merseysiders since returning from injury.
And though his side are currently not winning, Doucoure’s importance to this Everton side has been on full display this weekend, with just some of the positive reaction the Frenchman has received for his performance shown below:
BRILLIANT by Doucoure there, it’s what we’ve been missing
