Amadou Onana. Everton. 2022-23.— Michael (@greenallefc) February 8, 2023
I feel like it goes under the radar that this is a player who is still yet to play the equivalent of 50 professional league games yet.

Sean Dyche on playing Arsenal and Liverpool:
“If we can add more quality at times (that can help) but you have to remember the opposition we faced (Arsenal). They ain’t bad, they are top of the league for a reason.
