Silva happy with Everton debutants for Cup win at Lincoln

Everton boss Marco Silva was happy with his debutants for their win at Lincoln City last night.

The Blues progressed to the third round of the Carabao Cup with a 4-2 win at Sincil Bank thanks to goals from Lucas Digne, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Alex Iwobi and Richarlison.

The boss gave full debuts to Iwobi, Fabian Delph, Moise Kean and Djibril Sidibe - and praised them all following the win.

Silva said: "He [Fabian] did really, really well. It's no surprise to me, he has the capacity to do that.

"Of course Alex as well did really good, Moise Kean in some moments did well also. I know Sidibe when he's more settled in our team will help also.

"But we don't talk about just one or two players, I think we as a team did well.

"We were serious, which is one of the most important things in this type of competition. We respected the competition, ourselves and the opponent.

"Of course it's really important for me as a coach to see that and show a winning mentality."
