45 touches; two contests won: Kieran Dowell solid on full Everton debut against Norwich

The youngster was solid on his full Everton debut in the win over Norwich City.

Everton youngster Kieran Dowell enjoyed a solid full debut in the weekend’s win over Norwich City.

With the game unimportant for both sides, David Unsworth opted to hand full debuts to both Dowell and fellow youngster Tom Davies.

Neither looked out of their comfort zones either, putting in solid performances in their side’s eventual win.

Indeed, Dowell even played his part as he was key to the build up that led to Kevin Mirallas bagging the third of the afternoon.

Dowell was particularly impressive on the wing, as he posted solid stats on what was his Premier League debut.

His passing was solid, as he posted 22 accurate passes, 11 of which were in the final third, one key pass, and an overall passing success of 81%.

Dribbling wise he also did well, with three contests in total, two of which he won, in a display that will make many wonder if he is the latest talent to come off the Goodison Park production line.
