MetiNews.Com - Everton player ratings vs Salford City for the 3-0 home win in the Carabao Cup
Breaking News ! Joao Virginia - 6 As first team debuts go, the goalkeeper probably couldn't have hoped for a much easier one. Was hardly tested in terms of shots at his goal, but looked comfortable in his distribution whenever called on and was constantly communicating with his defence. Jonjoe Kenny - 7 A solid competitive return for the right back. Looked to break forward whenever possible, leading to a decent attempt at goal late on, and didn't let anything get passed him down that right flank. As energetic as you might expect from Kenny. Michael Keane - 7 Solid and commanding in defence as you'd expect from the England international and topped that off with a great header to give Everton the lead early on. A couple of errors in passing aside, this was another confident display.

The youngster had once again looked very strong and comfortable in his role at centre-back until picking up his issue. Fingers crossed it's not a serious one. Niels Nkounkou - 8 What an impressive competitive debut this was for Nkounkou. Brilliant in getting forward and taking his man on and, on another day, might have got a couple of assists to his name with dangerous crosses into the box. A fine display. Tom Davies - 7 Was able to get forward a lot more in this 4-3-3 formation and put in a more confident display because of that.
. Gylfi Sigurdsson - 7 Produced a great assist to set up Keane's opening goal and should have had another to his name with a fantastic cross to find Moise Kean for the striker to hit the bar. Found himself in the right place at the right time to bag a well-deserved goal in the second half and almost added a third shortly before the end.

Bernard - 7 Started the match very brightly in his central role, patrolling the midfield looking for the ball whenever he could. Added to a great amount of defensive work, especially in the first half, this was a good outing for the Brazilian. Theo Walcott - 6 Burst down the flank on multiple occasions but was just a little too wasteful with a couple of opportunities that might have seen Everton in a more comfortable lead at certain points of the match. Moise Kean - 6 Might have thought it was going to be one of those nights for him in an attacking sense, especially after heading onto the bar in the second half, but he took his late penalty very well to get off the mark early this term. Anthony Gordon - 8 Was clearly desperate to find his first Everton goal, and he might have done it late in the first half if his powerful effort wasn't headed behind by a defender. More equally strong attempts followed in the second half, including smacking the post with one, but the goal just evaded him. Despite that, this was a fantastic performance. *Who was your man of the match? Have your say in the comments section below. SUBS Lucas Digne - 7 Thrust into an unfamiliar role in central defence after the substitution of Branthwaite, but slotted in very comfortably in the time he had on the pitch. His maturity, composure and experience were exactly what his side needed. *Sign up for our FREE daily Everton newsletter here.
