Everton defender Mason Holgate was looking to make a point after slipping down Marco Silva’s pecking order when he made the switch to West Bromwich Albion in the January transfer window, and he’s certainly making it in his appearances so far.

The 22-year-old former England Under 21 international now has nine appearances to his name following the switch and eight of those have been starts in the right side of defence despite being a centre-half by trade.

Head coach Darren Moore will be delighted with his efforts in what has been a problematic spot for most of the campaign, and having picked up an assist in the earlier game against Aston Villa, he repeated the trick to set up Jake Livermore’s late winner at Loftus Road to give us another three points as we battle for a first return to the Premier League.

Go up and we have more chance of keeping him than we do now, just a shame we didn’t have a permanent clause in the loan but despite the lack of game time, Everton must know what kind of player they potentially have in him.
