Kevin Campbell thrilled by Everton sensation Anthony Gordon this season
We’re delighted to welcome former Everton striker Kevin Campbell as our exclusive columnist. Each week the former Toffees captain will be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Goodison Park…
Kevin Campbell has insisted that Anthony Gordon has now cemented his spot as an Everton first-team regular now.
The former Toffees talisman was blown away by the winger for his display against Chelsea in the 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Gordon was the main man all evening and delivered the all-important assist for Jarrad Branthwaite’s equaliser.
“I think Gordon was excellent,” he exclusively told Goodison News.
“He’s starting to feel like a first-team player, he feels as though he can play at this level – you can see it, the confidence in him.“
When our squad looked at its worst at Stamford Bridge, it gave the perfect opportunity for many to prove themselves.
Branthwaite and Gordon were both sensational, but it’s the latter who has enjoyed the best season of his career to date.
Earning his international debut for England under-21s was just the cherry on top as the winger continues to get better each week.
Rafa Benitez has brought him in at the perfect time this season, and he is getting rewarded with some brilliant performances.
We can’t wait to see more.
