Everton forward Richarlison has recently been captured performing an outrageous skill that went viral via Instagram.
Richarlison has had a frustrating campaign for Everton this season with injury troubles, and has featured 20 times in the Premier League, scoring four and assisting three times. The Brazilian striker scored three goals in two games whilst on international duty in World Cup qualifiers.
Everton have struggled immensely this term, sitting just one place above the bottom three ahead of this weekend’s fixtures, so Richarlison hitting form in front of goal for Brazil has come at the right time.
Richarlison missed a chunk of games over the Christmas period but has recently shown his skills via Instagram as he scored an outrageous goal from behind the goal frame in training.
Will Everton be relegated?
TIF Thoughts on Richarlison…
Richarlison has been valued at £45m by Transfermarkt, but has had a mixed bag this season in the Premier League in terms of stats. He has seven goal contributions in 20 games and averages just 0.4 shots on target per game. Meanwhile, he has been booked six times for his side, as per SofaScore.
For Brazil, his performances have been nothing short of brilliant. In his last two games, he has player ratings of 7.9 and 9 against Chile and Bolivia respectively. If Richarlison can continue this form for Everton in the remainder of the season, it will give Frank Lampard a huge boost in terms of keeping the Toffees in the Premier League.
Everton have been without star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and it is evident at times that they have become reliant on Richardson, so if they can get the English forward back fit before the end of the campaign, we may see an increase in the Brazilian’s form as the burden on his shoulders decreases.
