Sky Sports pundit gushes over Everton player despite heavy defeat v Spurs


Efan Ekoku was impressed with Anthony Gordon for his work-rate as Everton suffered a big defeat against Tottenham Hotspur.

With the Toffees in a relegation battle, the last thing they would have wanted was to lose by a 5-0 scoreline on Monday night. (March 7)

However, when the score was 0-0, Gordon tracked back incredibly well to deny Son a goal-scoring opportunity.

Speaking on the Premier League world feed, Ekoku, a Sky Sports pundit, said, “Robust challenge there from Gordon. Exceptional covering by him. That’s a chance missed for Spurs.”

If there was one positive that could be taken from this humiliating defeat, it would be the performance of Gordon.

The youngster never showed a defeated look on his face and played like the game was still in the balance, despite being on the wrong end of a 5-0 scoreline.

He gave the Spurs back line a few nervous moments and has done enough to cement his place in the team.

As for the others, it was a shocking display and one they would want to forget as soon as possible.

Frank Lampard has a massive job on his hands as he must take equal responsibility for this and it’s unfair to throw the players under the bus for every bad result.
