TNT Sports pundit gushes over Jordan Pickford in Everton v Sheffield United clash – Goodison News

By Pranav Shahaney
Jim Beglin was left blown away by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the 2-2 draw against Sheffield United on Saturday at Bramall Lane.
The Toffees won their first points of the new season on the road playing out a thrilling game in the 12:30 pm kick-off.
Pickford, while he was unluckily awarded an own goal, but earned a vital point late on with an exceptional save in stoppage time.

Beglin, a TNT Sports pundit, who also commentated on the game, said, “That Pickford double save at the death is huge for Everton morale. Sensational.”
He also said on commentary for the Premier League world feed, “That was absolutely fantastic. Double fantastic. I’m surprised this game has finished 2-2.”

Pickford has his lapses in concentration, undeniably, but there are few keepers in the Premier League that keep that out of the back of the net.
He could not do much for the own goal as he dived for the ball and it deflected off the post and went in off his back.
It was a spirited effort from the side and much better than recent games so there are some positives to take into the international break.
Sean Dyche will certainly be working extremely hard with the players during the next two weeks as they need to take their game to the next level.
Defensively too, they looked all over the place and there is no cohesion in midfield so these things need to be worked out on the training ground.
