This year could not start better for the Liverpool project, which they have the experience of Carlo Ancelotti at the helm, elected the best coach of the month of September, and the ability his two great stars, Calvert-Lewin who has won the best player and James Rodriguez who has competed the award to his teammate. The “toffee” have started the season in the best way imaginable. Right now they lead the Premier thanks to a full of victories with 12 points, 9 of them in the month of September.
One of the main architects of this overwhelming start is Dominic Calvert-Lewin who has scored 6 goals in the first 4 league games, including a Hat-Trick against West Brom on the second date. The Englishman is the first Everton player to win this award since Romelu Lukaku in March 2017. Right now sHe is sharing for the first position in the ranking of top scorers with South Korean Son, del Tottenham.
But all these good results would not have been possible, in part, without the resurrection of James Rodríguez, who is performing at a superlative level with Everton and does nothing but leave quality samples every time he steps on the grass. Many still do not fit in their heads how Real Madrid has let a footballer of such a level escape, and above all for free, since the Colombian has 3 goals and 2 assists as a cover letter in just 1 month of competition. In the last game against Brighton he scored 2 goals, and in a lateral foul, he assisted the former Blaugrana Yerry Mina with a pinpoint center at the head of his teammate.
“Carleto” commented that “I am delighted with the award. It is a great achievement. I want to share it with my team and my players. We have started the season very well and I hope to continue in this way and win it more times”, that would be added to the other 4 times that the Italian has won this award. This is the first since April 2011 when he was coaching Chelsea, a club with which he achieved all these achievements to this day.
At the moment they count their games by victories, and have surpassed Tottenham, on the first day by 0-1, West Brom and West Ham who took 5 goals and Brighton, whom they beat 4-2 on the last day.
Everton is one of the teams that has moved better this summer market, reinforcing the midfield with high-level players such as former Naples Allan and Watford’s Doucoure. They have also taken over the young Norwich center-back Ben Godfrey (22) and evidently with the arrival of the former golden boot of the Brazil World Cup, James Rodríguez.
