Rashica was brilliant today. His sleek and accurate passes helped maintain possession and were lively on the wings. Both the wing backs were brilliant today.
Sorensen was playing the number 6 role brilliantly in the first half but dipped in the second half with losing possession and making lazy passes. Looked bright in the first half but dull afterwards.

Melou was one of the best players for Norwich today with some impressive switch balls and through balls. His passing was intricate and he was the controlling force in the Norwich midfield.
Sargent had an average game with some bright chances in between the game which he squandered. He was a bit off today but was crucial in linking the Norwich play.

Pukki was decent today with his link-up play. His clever runs were making spaces for his teammates which they took brilliantly.
Replaced Williams in the 77th minute and did a decent job by performing his duty by rotating the ball well. Got some minutes under his belt.

Mykolenko was solid and made important blocks and passed well. He was involved in the attacking play too and was brave during the game.
Godfrey was ever solid at the back and neutralised the Norwich attack with elegance. He looked shaky sometimes but dealt with the pressure brilliantly.
Coleman looked sharp from the start and remained calm and composed and made attacking chances which troubled Brentford. His presence helped Everton remain undeterred.
Gomes was solid in defending as well as in attack. Made a few important interceptions that helped retrieve possession and were tidy in passing.
Gordon was playing well and was rotating possession really well. Tackled cleanly and made a few important interventions and his over-the-top balls were a constant menace to the Norwich defence.
Abdoulaye Doucouré (7/10)
Doucoure was quiet and made little effort in the press. His touches were poor and could have been better. His shots were also off target.
Gordon was tidy in possession and made important runs which were important and tidy. Though he committed some silly fouls. His positioning was immaculate.
Dominic Calvert Lewin(7/10)
DCL had a rather poor game today with this sloppy passing. Looked bright in some moments but was poor to his standards.
Rondon was making runs in behind the defenders but could not contribute significantly to the game. He would not be pleased with the result and would hope to find his form.
Richarlison was impactful today with his smart positioning and clever passes which troubled the slow legs of the Norwich defence. Scored a glorious scissor kick but was not enough.
He gave a new life to Everton with his fresh legs and looked dangerous. Should have started the game with that type of performance.
