The one-time Everton loanee put on a 'masterclass' for Chelsea, according to some fans on Sunday.
Everton fans might be hurting a little after seeing Kurt Zouma's performance on Sunday.
The French centre-back impressed at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester City.
It could and should have been a convincing win for the hosts and the lack of three points is by no means a reflection on Zouma, who struck a chord with the Everton faithful during a loan at Goodison last term.
He was so popular with the Toffees that Marcel Brands tried to bring the £25 million-rated defender back to Merseyside [Everton TV], but the London club's transfer ban meant that they couldn't sign a replacement.
Here's how Chelsea fans reacted to his display against the Foxes.
Zouma put on a defensive masterclass in that first half.— . (@ForeverBlue_07) August 18, 2019
A disappointment result after such a good start. On a positive note I was really impressed by the performance of Kurt Zouma. He really looks more confident than he did against United last week.— MatteoCFC (@MatteoCFC) August 18, 2019
Zouma was unreal today. If you don’t score goals your defence will suffer— Abayomi (@yurng_god) August 18, 2019
Zouma was brilliant today. He’s such a physical presence and looked comfortable on the ball too. Lots of good signs from him today #CFC— Ben Croft (@bmjc1996) August 18, 2019
Zouma was a beast today, bossing up through the way— Dwain Chireru (@DwainChireru) August 18, 2019
Even without Zouma, Everton could have a season to remember.
Yerry Mina had his stand-out performance in a blue shirt last week against Crystal Palace and he might just be the Zouma alternative that Brands failed to sign during the summer.
Zouma didn't have a brilliant game as the Blues lost 4-0 at Manchester United a week ago, but there was a huge sign of improvement yesterday and if he maintains that standard, Brands and manager Marco Silva won't be getting him back period.
