Sam Parkin described Vitaliy Mykolenko as “powerful and aggressive” as he opened the score for Everton against Crystal Palace on Saturday, November 11.
The pundit declared that the Eagles were in “big trouble” as soon as Dominic Calvert-Lewin got the ball and defender Marc Guehi failed to get enough on his header to clear it away from danger during his co-commentary on BBC Radio London on Saturday at 03:01 p.m.
He went on to say that Jack Harrison’s pass was “absolutely delicious,” finding Mykolenko, who headed it in for the Toffees’ first goal in their 3-2 victory at Selhurst Park.
Guehi didn’t get enough on his header, and they are in serious trouble the instant the ball is played into Calvert-Lewin, according to Parkin.
In fact, Calvert-Lewin’s team was able to recycle possession. He pulls it back, and as you mentioned, Mykolenko had the initial shot. After that, the ball went wide to the right, and no one had picked him up because the full-back was too far forward to get a shot off.
“He pulled on Anderson’s back, nobody got up, and the standup from Harrison’s right foot was just wonderful in terms of delivery. Simply enticing Mykolenko to carry on with his streak, and since he wakes up early and is strong and aggressive, the header will be simple in the end.
Without a doubt, Everton’s offensive style this season is considerably more purposeful, as demonstrated when Mykolenko scored against Palace in under a minute.
