“I am delighted to make my Premier League debut," told evertontv. “It is something I have been dreaming of since I was a kid. To come on in the circumstances and get the result in the end just made it all the more special.
I've made my debut a little quicker than I thought I would, so I made the right decision coming to Everton.
“I nearly got on the end of a free-kick. I just didn't get the contact I wanted. But obviously Ash has got the next one.
“I had a little swing and a miss at the end as well. Thankfully the lads were on the line to get it away. It shows the character in the team to dig in and get the three points."
