Everton manager, Frank Lampard, hailed Amadou Onana for victory over Carabao Cup opponents Fleetwood.

Onana, who is Everton’s biggest signing of the summer after joining for £33.5million from Lille, made his full Blues bow at Highbury Stadium after substitute appearances against Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest and came in for some rough treatment from the League One opponents.

Lampard said: “I was pleased with how Amadou Onana faced the challenge and I thought he grew into the game. He showed his physicality and stood up to things, did some good passes, showed good aggression and good attitude plus a bit of quality driving through as the game went on which is a big quality of his.

“With young players you have to be a bit patient and I want to work with him. As a midfield player I can see things from the sidelines that I can help him with and his team-mates can help him with but we need to get there pretty quickly because he’s a big player for the future.

“I was really pleased, I thought it was an impressive start and he’s a positive young man coming into the dressing room and that’s a nice feeling.”
