3. Garbutt – sole bright spark for Everton
Arsenal might well finish in the top four and the Toffees look like they might avoid the drop and stay in the league. So, in terms of the league position at the end of the season, a routine 2-0 win or Arsenal isn’t particularly noteworthy. But this game might just go down as the game that Luke Garbutt introduced himself to the world.
Have you never heard of him? Well you are not alone. But Everton’s 21-year-old who was deputizing for Leighton Baines caught the eye in a game that didn’t have too many bright spots as far as Everton were concerned. But Garbutt not only defended well, his crossing was simply exemplary. Whether it was from set-pieces or from open play, the full back displayed an array of crossing that was arguably the single-biggest talking point of the game.
