Everton drew 0-0 with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last night.
Muhamed Besic has continued to earn the praise of Everton supporters, after putting in a fine performance against Manchester City last night.
Everton drew 0-0 with City, and their display showed how much they have improved defensively of late.
The Toffees had been guilty of gifting opposition sides goals in the early part of the campaign, but they have now let in just two goals in their last four matches.
Part of the reason for this has been due to Besic’s wonderful form in the heart of their midfield.
The Bosnian international has offered great protection to Everton’s defence, since stepping into the team in the absence of James McCarthy.
Besic has now played in Everton’s last five matches and he has impressed in every appearance he has made.
Toffees fans have urged Roberto Martinez not to drop him when McCarthy returns to fitness, as they feel he is a better option.
Here is the best reaction from Everton fans to Besic’s performance against City.
It's gonna be absolute chaos when McCarthy's back, and Besic gets instantly dropped. Someone's gonna kill Martinez. Literally kill him.— Leah (@Leah_Corner) January 14, 2016
Besic wants the ball, always on the move, always looks for a forward pass, likes a tackle and is non stop, best centre mid we have #EFC— Tommy Jones (@tommyjonesefc) January 14, 2016
After watching Besic for the last 3 games, do people now realise how limited McCarthy is as a footballer.— Lee Cruickshank (@LeeCruickshank9) January 14, 2016
divided opinion over McCarthy especially in view of recent Besic displays. Yes McCarthy can do a job, except Besic does that job and more.— Just Dave (@SirDaveStephen) January 14, 2016
Absolute beast of a performance from besic again last night.... He's starting to become my favourite player, his determination is so sick...— EcclesmcTwistedVibez (@ecclesmc) January 14, 2016
