Critics complain about Sigurdsson's consistency, being a £50m signing and all, but individual performances such as these prove why he's Everton's best player. 

With three key passes, two tackles and one interception, the Icelandic midfielder was one of few bright sparks for the hosts in the first-half - which will go unnoticed. Constantly trying to create chances, they ultimately came to nothing. 

However, he netted their match-clinching second and probably could've had two assists for himself too: Calvert-Lewin headed wide before substitute Theo Walcott came close after the break.

If they wanted to get anything from this game, attacks needed to stem from him, being their creator-in-chief. His spot-kick was telegraphed and after forcing Kepa into a good stop, he reacted quickly enough to atone for the miss - his 12th goal of the campaign.
