Alan Shearer is ecstatic about Vitalii Mykolenko following Everton’s victory over Crystal Palace.
Chelsea’s left-back Alan Shearer, a commentator, has selected Vitalii Mykolenko for the Premier League Team of the Week.
At Selhurst Park on Saturday, November 11, the Toffees defeated the Eagles 3-2. The defender played the full ninety minutes.
In the Premier League match, Mykolenko scored alongside Abdoulaye Doucoure and Idrissa Gueye, while the hosts’ goals came from Eberechi Eze and Odsonne Edouard.
Mykolenko “scored the quickest goal of the season and was unlucky not to add a second in an impressive win for Everton,” according to Shearer, who was speaking to the official Premier League website.
The Everton left-back, who has been impressive in the final third of the season, put on a truly great display. He wasn’t exactly renowned for his goal-scoring prowess prior to the start of the current season, but after scoring in the 1-1 draw with Brighton earlier this month, he has now scored in back-to-back Premier League games.
But he wasn’t the only one to impress at Selhurst Park, with Sean Dyche’s side all on top form as they picked up a huge three points on the road.
Palace have often been tricky to beat at home, but the Toffees managed to leave victorious thanks to a great attacking display.
The Merseyside club are now up to 14th place in the league table following the win, with 14 points from their 12 matches.
After early struggles, they now look more than capable of picking up points and scoring goals, much to the delight of Toffees supporters.
