Everton were held to a 2-2 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers as they started their Premier League campaign and fans were delighted with the performance from one man in particular.
The Toffees would have been looking to get their season off to a flyer and found themselves ahead when debutant Richarlison opened the scoring inside the first 20 minutes of the match.
Everton found themselves down to 10 men just before half-time when Phil Jagielka was shown a straight red card, with Ruben Neves scoring a wonderful goal from the resulting free-kick.
The Goodison Park outfit found themselves back in front through Richarlison once again, who had a blinding first match for the Toffees, however, they were pegged back once again.
Raul Jimenez managed to earn Wolves a point just as the match approached the final ten minutes, leaving Marco Silva’s side wondering what could have been.
However, despite the result, Everon fans took to social media to praise the performance of a man that may have been deemed on the fringes of the squad.
Morgan Schneiderlin played a key role in front of the defence and supporters were quick to acknowledge the job he had done at Molineux.
Many were delighted with the showing from the 28-year-old, who has had a difficult couple of seasons since his switch from Manchester United and are hopeful that he will be able to replicate it in the future.
Here are some of the Everton fans’ reactions:
Played well today, Morgan. Keep it up! 👍🔵⚪️
