Everton fans had to be really patient to see Barcelona loanee Andre Gomes pull on the famous blue shirt, but it was certainly worth the wait. Gomes has been exceptional ever since his debut for the Toffees, and Wednesday’s 1-1 draw against Newcastle was no different. The Portugal international was a class above everyone else in midfield, continuing exactly where he left off from his display at the weekend against Liverpool. The way in which he glides past players and pings pinpoint balls to feet is so easy to watch, and it is no wonder that these Everton fans are falling in love with the playmaker. Gomes has had a tough time at Barcelona since his big-money move from Valencia, but looks to have been given a new lease of life at Goodison Park since being snapped up by Marco Silva. It is no wonder that many are already calling for Everton to pursue a permanent deal for Gomes, and that is what they must do next. These fans below have gone wild for his display on Wednesday, and it is easy to see why.

You see the way he glides across the pitch, looking like Adonis himself. Stroking beautiful pass after beautiful pass, shrugging off the lesser mortals, crafting opportunities and beguiling opponents. What a guy. God I love Andre Gomes.
