Gordon reflects on Premier League debut
Anthony Gordon has been reflecting on making his Premier League debut after coming on as a substitute in Everton’s draw with West Ham.
Labelling it “the best day of my life so far”, the 18-year-old told evertontv he is now hungry for more.
It’s the best day of my life so far, a Premier League debut but I want more now and to keep going.
It would have felt better if we’d won but it’s the best achievement I’ve had in my career so far. I’m just hoping for more of it now.
If you’re on the bench you’re always hoping to come on. I got the call and I gave it my best.
Delphy, Tom [Davies] and Dom [Calvert-Lewin] really helped me during the game, I got settled straight away. You don’t really think, ‘I’m playing a Premier League game’, you’ve just got to get yourself embedded in the game and do your job and try to win.

We are looking at players, some targets we have, but I don’t want to say what we need.
Ancelotti on Emre Can link
Last press conference I said all the names that are in the newspaper are wrong.
I can say the same today.
All the names on Sky are also wrong.
The one thing on fans minds at the minute is transfers.
Ancelotti will no doubt be asked about his plans in the transfer market at today’s presser.
It will be interesting to hear what the Everton boss has to say...
