Everton legend Andy Gray admits he's a fan of the current team's midfield.

Gray believes he would have thrived in today's era alongside the present group of Everton players.

"Leighton Baines and Seamus Coleman at full-back, they must cross more quality balls into the penalty area than any other players in the league," Gray told evertonfc.com.

"You have got players like Osman and Gibson, along with Mirallas who has got that little bit of stardust in him, so any striker worth his salt would be looking forward to playing in this team.

"If I was playing in that side and they were playing as well as they did last year, I'd be disappointed if I wasn't touching 20 goals a season."
