Premier League

James Rodriguez has proved Premier League doubters wrong by dominating Everton games and dictating play ...

The Colombian had endured a difficult spell with Los Blancos and his path to first-team football was blocked by the sheer depth of talent ahead of him.

The Italian had managed James previously during a spells as coach at Real Madrid and Bayern Munich and they had enjoyed a good relationship.

Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin , in particular, have enjoyed a strong start to the season and James has immediately developed a near telepathic understanding with Everton’s excellent French full-back Lucas Digne.

In this example, Calvert-Lewin is leading the line and as James receives possession of the ball the young striker makes an intelligent double movement in order to stay onside and create separation between him and the defensive players.

Rodriguez has settled well into Premier League football While James is perhaps at his most dangerous in the final third of the pitch that does not mean that he is not an effective contributor in deeper areas, particularly in moments of attacking transition.

Rodriguez was a statement signing by Everton and it’s working so far When James first moved to England there was some doubt as to whether he would adapt to the specific physical and mental requirements of the Premier League.
