Deulofeu spurned a good chance at 1-0 but his blushes were spared by a brilliant goal from Asensio just moments later.
The Everton winger atoned from the spot not long afterwards when he made it 3-0 and after he departed in the second half, Asensio completed his hat-trick with 18 minutes left to make it five.
Sandro was also substituted a minute later.

Sandro had limited service; too early to judge.
24 Posted 17/06/2017 at 22:11:06
Personally I'd like him to stay and compete with Bolasie as our right winger.

Holgate, Williams, Keane;
Deulofeu, Sandro, Klaassen;
Lukaku (World Cup year – ya never know)
Browning, Funes Mori, Galloway;
Dowell, Calvert-Lewin, Lookman;
With Pennington, Kenny, Barry, Williams and Tarashaj as options to change and bring in.
Life is good – enjoy Spurs, Ross!

Just a little bit excited about where we are heading I guess! Really do believe that with 2-3 more additions (still very light up front) we'll have a squad capable of almost anything.
31 Posted 18/06/2017 at 08:53:56
Let's see him in an Everton shirt and what he can do for us he will at the very least bring plenty of movement to the team, something some of the present players don't even think about doing.

All these new boys will need time to settle in and acclimatise. They look class players (no pun intended) and are the right age too. We all need to have trust in Walsh and his team and encourage the new players. With a bit of luck, they will come good.
I don't see Deulofeu being part of it moments of brilliance but a liability for the rest of the time.
34 Posted 18/06/2017 at 10:56:19
While we are all excited about the prospect of Sandro and the others we have signed, they are also all gambles and unproven at the level of Lukaku and indeed Barkley for that matter.
I'd like to see some established quality brought in to command the centre forward position at least. A Carlos Bacca type would be acceptable to offset the risk of these youngsters. Or alternatively, telling Rom he's going nowhere until at least next year. The former solution being preferred due to Lukaku's lack of teamwork in a rebuilding phase.
