Everton fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the performance of Matthew Pennington against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
Pennington started the Premier League game for Everton against Bournemouth and played for the entire 90 minutes.
The 21-year-old defender was making his league debut for the Toffees, and it was a memorable one as the Merseyside outfit won 2-1.
The youngster, who was recently recalled from a loan spell at Walsall, had a pass accuracy of 82%, and won four headers and one dribble.
Pennington made three effective clearances, won one interception and five duels had 82 touches of the ball, and made eight ball recoveries.
It was a very good and solid debut from the former England Under-19 international defender, who will now hope to gradually establish himself as a regular in the first team.

@thomas_efc thought Pennington looked class for a debutant.— Jamie Hughes (@Jamie_Hughe5) May 1, 2016
Likes of Galloway, Pennington, Dowell, Ledson need to get chances in 16/17. I hope we have a manager who will give them games #EFC— Phil Houghton (@philinsuffolk) April 30, 2016
I thought Pennington was superb today. Has class on the ball but can also provide the no nonsense defending when required. Great start #efc— Toffeecast (@toffeecast1878) April 30, 2016
Thought Pennington and Stones were excellent today considering their combined age #efc— MICHAEL (@mickybluey) April 30, 2016
@tonyf_efc Pennington is more of Jags replacement, i see Galloway or Holgate being Stones' replacement— Ben (@BenKing200005) April 30, 2016
Thought Pennington was excellent today, probably my man of the match. #EFC— Royal Blue Everton (@RoyalBlueEFC) April 30, 2016
