Everton fans react on Twitter to Joel Robles' performance v Norwich City

Everton Goodison

Everton secured their place in the League Cup quarter final by defeating Norwich City.

The Toffees secured their passage to the next round of the League Cup by defeating Norwich on Tuesday evening, winning 4-3 on penalties.

This came at the end of extra-time, with both teams tied at 1-1, courtesy of goals from Sebastien Bassong and Leon Osman.

Roberto Martinez’s men are now in just their second League Cup quarter final in 27 years, and it was an impressive victory given the Canaries’ dominated possession and the shooting statistics.

Martinez decided to name a somewhat changed side for the tie, with one of the key changes coming in the goalkeeping department. Joel Robles was recalled to the side, making his third start in the League Cup, despite not having yet featured in the Premier League.

Whilst Tim Howard has come under some criticism for his league performances in recent weeks, Robles has yet to be given a chance to impress, but he certainly showed Martinez what he was about in the victory over Norwich.

He made a vital save from Lewis Grabban near the end of the game, as well as saving one of Norwich’s penalties, and Robles’ performance had many claiming after the game that he deserves a chance in the league now.

Following the end of the game, Everton fans took to Twitter to discuss Robles’ performance, praising his work in relation to Howard’s recent games.
