Everton center back Jarrad Branthwaite has received high marks from pundit Micah Richards for his performance against West Ham United.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ Super Sunday, Richards discussed Branthwaite’s contribution to Everton’s victory.

The pundit thought Branthwaite was very effective when stepping out of defence and loved his role in Calvert-Lewin’s goal.

Richards said: “Branthwaite has been exceptional, involved in the goal there, stepping up and winning it.

“And that touch [from Dominic Calvert-Lewin] was just marvellous, excellent, excellent away win for them.”

And it was just that.

Sean Dyche will have been targeting an improvement on the road for his Everton side this season and that is already their second away win.

And credit has to be given to the whole Everton backline for the role they played.
