Durham claims Everton win v Wolves was best PL performance of the season
Adrian Durham has claimed that Tuesday’s Everton win against Wolves was the best performance produced by a Premier League side this season.
The Toffees won 2-1 at Molineux on Tuesday evening as goals from Alex Iwobi and Michael Keane secured the points.
It was a much-changed Everton side with several key players missing and, speaking on TalkSPORT, Durham hailed the performance as ‘phenomenal’.

He said, “The win from Everton at Wolves is the best performance from any club in the Premier League so far this season.
“So many key players out for Everton. Four or five players last night were playing out of position. It was tactically phenomenal from Carlo Ancelotti.
“Even [Alex] Iwobi played well. We are looking at an incredible Everton performance that should not be undervalued.”
