Everton fans are desperate for Davy Klaassen to be given a chance in their first-team, with Gyfli Sigurdsson being ruled out.

Sigurdsson could miss the rest of the season with injury, after damaging his knee.

The Icelandic international had been in good form for Everton prior to his injury, and he will be tough to replace.

But Everton fans are now keen to see Klaassen given a go in a more attacking role.

Klaassen was renowned for his attacking quality in Holland with Ajax, but he has rarely been given a chance to show it at Goodison Park.

The Dutch midfielder has started just three games for Everton in the Premier League, and has barely featured all season.

Klaassen finally featured for Everton for the first time in 2018 against Brighton & Hove Albion and there is now certainly a place for him in their starting line-up, with Sigurdsson out.

And with Everton destined for a mid-table finish, it may be time to find out whether the 25-year-old can cope in Sam Allardyce’s side.
