Here we are again with the result of the November Player of the Month based the cumulative Man of the Match polling results. Suffice it to say that November – as far as results went – will feature less in the memory than the October that preceded it but, Everton Football Club took part in four games, GOT ran the four MotM polls and you guys and gals voted, so here’s the outcome.
Four games played resulted in three losses and a goalless draw. Reversals at Wolves, Manchester City and newly promoted Brentford saw only one goal scored – Alex Iwobi netting a consolation marker at Molineux – while that blank scoreline for the solitary point in the month was gained against Spurs at Goodison. Normally we include a quick recap of the games however, we’ve probably all suffered enough recently so we’ll give that part of the article a miss this time shall we?
Seventeen players were involved in the four games including a cameo appearance for his Premier League debut by Tyler Onyango at the Etihad Stadium. Eight players appeared in all four games with four – Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Ben Godfrey and captain Seamus Coleman – playing every minute.
To the individual Man of the Match poll winners, and Fabian Delph returning from injury clearly won the vote for the loss away at Wolves and was also a hands-down winner for his efforts in the draw against Tottenham. Moving onto the Etihad and the loss to City, Andros Townsend won the vote although this game saw the lowest polling numbers of the season, probably a reflection of the mood of the fan base at losing to a City team who barely got out of second gear. And so to Brentford and a welcome return to the first team for Abdoulaye Doucoure saw him narrowly edge out Demarai Gray.
