On The Ball: Mina Conquers Stamford Bridge

Yerry Mina had an interesting few days of football last week.

One minute he was enjoying his first full run out at Goodison Park playing against the Kenyan champions, Gor Mahia, and then suddenly he was thrust into the centre of the Everton defence for their trip to in-form Chelsea.

But the Colombia international took it all in his considerable stride, keeping a well-deserved clean sheet alongside Michael Keane against a side who had averaged 2.5 goals at home prior to Sunday's encounter.

His passing success rate of 90.6 per cent was an eye-catching addition to his performance - the highest of any Toffees player aside from second-half substitute Ademola Lookman.

We have picked out some of the best bits from the former Barcelona man's promising first Blues start below. Enjoy.
