Swiss midfielder Shani Tarashaj was in action for Everton last night, making his first ever start for the club.

Tarashaj featured in the friendly win away to MK Dons, a 3-1 victory which saw goals from Gerard Deulofeu, Ross Barkley and Muhamed Besic.

Here is a look at how Everton fans reacted on Twitter to his display...
