The new Premier League season is only two games old, but we've already seen some promising signs from Everton.

They've already kept two clean sheets, meaning they're the only team left in the Premier League yet to concede a goal, and picked up four points from their two games.

Yes, it's only one goal scored in that time too, with Bernard scoring the winner against Watford on Saturday, but there are signs that Marco Silva will be able to push Everton a step forward this term.

 

The goal tally should be aided by new signing Moise Kean, who has arrived from Juventus in an exciting deal, but he hasn't yet started for Everton.

The 19-year-old hit six goals in just 13 league games for Juve last season, and having started just five of those games, Kean has been touted for a huge future.

Kean has made two substitute appearances so far as Silva eases him into Premier League football, but he's been picked out for success by Jamie Carragher.

The pundit told Sky Sports on Monday night that he thinks Kean is 'one to watch', believing that Everton have landed themselves something of a bargain with the Italian's signature.

“Moise Kean I think is one to watch,” said Carragher. “He’s come away from Juventus, he’s come to Everton, I haven’t seen him play yet, but it almost seems like a snip, in terms of price, what they’ve paid,” he added.

Not only did Carragher back Kean for success, but he matched Gary Neville's prediction in tipping Everton to be top six contenders this season, with Toffees fans surely excited about hearing both of those suggestions.
