Seamus Coleman (Everton)
Here is another player that I absolutely enjoy watching. Coleman is a great defender that can be a terror to the opposition when he decides he wants to score– which he has decided to do a lot of this season.
Coleman makes my list narrowly ahead of Tottenham’s Kyle Walker as he has impressed me for quite a few seasons now with the Merseyside blues. In this season’s race, Everton is sitting close to the top in seventh place largely thanks to the Irishman’s four goals and 14 chances created. When Coleman gets onto the ball and starts his run into the opposition’s box, defenders panic and that creates a lot of opportunity for not only himself but the other threats that Everton posses.
With two assists and 12 key passes to his name this season, Everton manager Ronald Koeman considers Coleman to be an inaugural part of the squad, selecting him for 22 appearances this season and playing the full duration over 95% of the time.
The way that Coleman plays the game with intensity, desire and because of his tenacity made me select Coleman ahead of Kyle Walker- who has also had an incredible run this season both offensively and defensively as well.
Don’t agree with me so far? The comment section is below, I would love to hear your feedback on why Danny Rose, Steve Cook, Winston Reid or others should have been selected.
