Thanks to an inconvenient international break, Everton only played three matches in November, but did fairly well all the same, beating both Cardiff City and Brighton while drawing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. With that in mind, it’s time to go ahead and name Everton’s player of the month for November 2018.
Community Player of the Month
With an aggregate rating of 8.02 over three matches, it is Andre Gomes who takes home this month’s award. An impressive range of passing, clever feet, quick decision-making, and stability in midfield make the Portuguese man your star of the last four weeks, and it’s well deserved. Gomes has added an aspect to Everton’s midfield not seen in some time. Mikel Arteta, anyone?
RBM Player of the Month
While Gomes is deserving of the community award, I’ll step out of line a bit and give my plaudits to Gylfi Sigurdsson. Nobody in Everton’s lineup is more constant, and nobody in Everton’s lineup is more consistent. The Icelander has a work rate that is truly absurd, and his goal and assist in November heavily contributed to the Blues’ success. Gylfi will play nearly every minute of every game and never, ever look fatigued. Well in.
Continuing with a theme, this month’s honorable mention goes to Idrissa Gueye. Gana has been in magnificent form, and only the play of Gomes and Sigurdsson alongside him in midfield keep the Senegalese man from taking top honors. Gueye has continually improved his passing ability since arriving at Goodison Park, and leads the Premier League in tackles.
Gana, Gylfi, and Gomes. Handsome. Talented. What a trio.
