Everton fans have given their man of the match award to impressive midfielder Idrissa Gueye after another excellent performance in the 2-0 away win over Leicester City on Boxing Day.
Goals from Kevin Mirallas and Romelu Lukaku gave the Goodison Park outfit three deserved Premier League points at the home of the English champions on Monday.

However, Gueye was essential to the visitors dominating the midfield encounters, with the Senegalese star continuing his fine start to life at Everton with another masterful display.
The African enforcer was part of the aston Villa side that was relegated from the Premier League last season but he has shown that he has all the attributes required to excel in English football’s top flight.
An impressive 99 touches of the ball shows Gueye’s importance to Everton, while the midfielder’s other statistics are evidence of the midfielder’s influence both with and without possession.
The 26-year-old must be adjudged as one of the best Premier League summer signings and will be a key component to Koeman’s side moving into the new year.
