James Rodriguez Everton 2020-21

James Rodriguez has continued his fine start to life at Everton, tallying two goals and an assist in a 4-2 win over Brighton on Saturday.

With three goals and three assists infive games for Everton in all competitions this season, James hasdoubled his return from his 14 appearances with Real Madrid last season (onegoal, twoassists).

Rodriguez assisted his fellow Colombian Yerry Mina just before half-time on Saturday before grabbing goals in the 52nd and 70th minutes.

With his brace, Rodriguez scored two or moregoals in a league game for the first time since March 2019, when he netted a hat-trick for Bayern Munich against Mainz in the Bundesliga.

Speaking to the BBC, Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti– who also coached Rodriguez at Real Madrid and Bayern – said that he knew the playmaker's quality would shine through quickly in England.

"As I said on the first day, the players with quality have not a problem with that settling in," the Italian said.

"The quality is there because football is not so complicated. The pitch is always the same, the opponents are always 11, the ball is the same, the goal doesn't move.

"Football is simple. It is not complicated."

Ancelottihas rejuvenated the Toffees in his first full season in charge, leading the club to wins in their first seven matches in all competitions, including four in a row in the Premier League.

Everton are now off to their best start in a whopping 126 years, having lastwon their first seven games in all competitions in the 1894-95 season.

The Toffees have alsowon their opening four games in a top-flight season for the first time since 1969-70, when they went on to win the title.

Dominic Calvert-Lewinhas been instrumental in his side's brilliant start, and his goal against Brighton meant he is the first player to score in each of Everton's first four Premier League games of a season.
