‘Under Frank, he didn’t look…’ – Liverpool legend Danny Murphy blown away by Everton star’s form

A Liverpool legend Danny Murphy has been amazed by Dwight McNeil’s exceptional performance under the management of Sean Dyche at Everton, write the HITC.

McNeil, who was signed in the summer from Burnley, has been thriving at the Premier League club, despite their current struggle with relegation. Dyche’s appointment as the new manager at Everton in February seemed to be a positive sign for McNeil, given that he had previously achieved success under the former Burnley boss. Since reuniting with Dyche at Everton, McNeil has been reinvigorated and has scored four goals while providing two assists, starting from the 1-0 victory over Arsenal.

On Bank Holiday Monday, McNeil put on an outstanding performance at The Amex, which some might say was the greatest of his entire Premier League career. The 23-year-old played a crucial role in Abdoualye Doucoure’s second goal of the game, caused Jason Steale to score an own goal, and scored two goals in the second half, with a powerful shot into the top corner being the highlight of his exceptional individual performance. This game will undoubtedly go down as one of Everton’s most memorable displays in recent times.

Danny Murphy told talkSPORT: “His physical presence since Dyche has got them playing has been really, really important. And now he is adding goals and assists.

“He was a talented lad, and now he is playing better than I’ve ever seen him. He looks comfortable playing under a manager he knows. Under Frank, he didn’t look comfortable.”
