Ian Snodin makes a prediction about Everton’s Gerard Deulofeu


Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu has been in good form so far this season.

Ian Snodin has predicted in The Liverpool Echo that Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu could score at least 10 goals this season.

“If he can add goals to his game – which I’m sure he can if he gets a regular run in the Everton team between now and the rest of the season – he’ll have the complete package,” former Everton midfielder Snodin wrote about Deulofeu in The Liverpool Echo.

“There’s no reason to suggest that Geri couldn’t get double figures for us and the way we play that’s not a bad total.”

Deulofeu joined Everton from Spanish giants Barcelona in the summer transfer window and has been in good form so far this season.

The Spain international has scored one goal and created 11 chances in 10 Premier League appearances so far this campaign.

The 21-year-old winger has a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 100%, and has won 13 dribbles and five tackles.

Deulofeu scored a hat-trick for the Spain Under-21 side against their Georgia counterparts in a 5-0 win in a Euro 2017 qualifier on Thursday evening.

Everton are ninth in the Premier League table at the moment with 17 points from 12 matches.

The Merseyside outfit are seven points behind Manchester United, who are currently fourth in the standings.

Roberto Martinez’s side will take on Aston Villa at Goodison Park in the Premier League next weekend.
