Everton made it two wins in a row when they followed up their 3-1 victory against Hearts with a 2-0 win against Dundee on Tuesday evening.
Ross Barkley and Conor McAleny scored the goals while last weekend’s hat-trick hero Romelu Lukaku was taken off with a hamstring injury.
The Belgian international was removed as a precaution and Everton manager Roberto Martinez will be hoping there is nothing to worry about with the new Premier League campaign just around the corner.
While Barkley and McAleny ensured Everton’s win, it was midfielder Tom Cleverley who generated plenty of comments on social media, with the former Manchester United player’s contribution suggesting he has a bright future at Goodison Park.
The 25-year-old enjoyed a renaissance while on loan at Aston Villa and now he will be hoping to maintain and even better that form at his new permanent club.
Cleverley has innate talent but has yet to find the consistency needed to be a top quality player, but on the evidence of his pre-season to date, that could be about to change.
Following their latest match we took to Twitter to see what Everton fans thought of Cleverley’s performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Liking cleverly, good awareness. Links up well with baines and sees space when the attackers do. #efclive— ... (@sosevertonian) July 28, 2015
One thing I hold my hands up to though. Take a bow Tom Cleverley! Proved me wrong so far. Long may it continue— Neil Tyler (@Tyler_EFC) July 28, 2015
Cleverley's looked lively as well— Kieran Bowie (@KieranBowie1878) July 28, 2015
Only pre season but Cleverley looking the part for me, Kone should not be getting a game before McAleny anymore.— JH (@howarth1878) July 28, 2015
#EFClive Cleverley looking good, think he will prove the doubters wrong and win them over.— Mike Bannister (@1MBan) July 28, 2015
Cleverley been #EFC's standout player after a ropey start. Very neat and tidy, always looking to pass forward— Matt Jones (@MattJFootball) July 28, 2015
Thoughts following Everton pre-season tour of Scotland: 1) We need a backup striker 2) See Cleverley having a big impact and getting goals— Kevin MacIver (@maciverton) July 29, 2015
