Harry Wilson has come out on top of a tight vote to claim the Man of the Match award against Everton.

Wilson and Dan James were both brought in by Marco Silva for the Goodison Park clash, and they duly rewarded their Head Coach with two prolific showings.

And so it proved that the pair were the most popular candidates in the MOTM poll, with Wilson’s 36.2 per cent of the vote edging out his Wales international teammate by the finest of margins, with 34.5% opting for DJ.

After drawing an early save from Jordan Pickford, Wilson went even closer when his beautiful curling strike struck the inside of the far post. It deserved a goal and thankfully it led to one, thanks to Harrison Reed via James’ touch.

A first Premier League goal in black and white wasn’t to elude Wilson for long, though. Kenny Tete spotted Willian in space at the far post, and the winger had the intelligence to cushion a perfect touch into the path of Wilson who had space in the box, and his trusty left foot did the rest.

You could tell what it meant to the 26-year-old, as he sprinted straight to the away fans, who would have had a lovely view of his strike.
