Joel Robles praises Everton's three stand out performers against Bournemouth

Everton

Everton beat Bournemouth 2-0 to progress in the FA Cup.

Joel Robles has told the Liverpool Echo that Ross Barkley, Romelu Lukaku and Aaron Lennon were all ‘fantastic’ for Everton against Bournemouth.

The Toffees beat Eddie Howe’s side 2-0 in the FA Cup last weekend, and Robles received a great deal of acclaim after the match.

The Spanish goalkeeper pulled off a brilliant save from Charlie Daniels’ penalty, when the score was locked at 0-0.

It proved to be the turning point in the match, as Everton went on to assert their authority on the tie in the second half.

However, Robles has been keen to deflect some of the attention onto some of his teammates, who he felt were constant threats to the Cherries’ defence.

“In the first-half we didn’t keep the ball well and didn’t have options but the second-half was really good," Robles said. 

“Ross, Lukaku and Aaron Lennon were really good and for me this clean sheet is for everyone.”

Everton scored their goals through Barkley and Lukaku, as they made it through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

The Toffees face a tough test against Chelsea in the next round, as they aim to book their place at Wembley.

And Robles looks set to continue in goal for the foreseeable future, as he appears to have overtaken Tim Howard in the pecking order for places at Goodison Park.
