A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to comment on their side's Premier League game today and, although Marco Silva's charges were victorious, one Goodison Park player's display came under some scrutiny.

Everton claimed their first away win of the season to move out of the lower reaches of the table at the expense of fellow strugglers Southampton, running out 2-1 winners on the south coast.

 

Tom Davies put Everton ahead after just four minutes, heading in from close range after Mason Holgate diverted Gylfi Sigurdsson's corner back across goal, but the Toffees spurned numerous chances before Danny Ings pulled the Saints level.

In the end, the Goodison Park side emerged triumphant as Richarlison turned home Djibril Sidibe's cross from six yards out in the 75th minute for a lead the visitors would not relinquish again.

Although Cenk Tosun - named in the XI by Silva - linked up well with his teammates, he slowed down the play, and also spurned a gilt-edged opportunity from five yards out which would have doubled Everton's lead, and in the end he was replaced by Dominic Calvert-Lewin on 74 minutes.

Here is what some Everton fans have been saying about Tosun's display on the day:

The result saw Everton climb up from 17th to 13th in the Premier League table, a place and a point ahead of Manchester United, who host Brighton on Sunday.
