Richarlison, Gylfi's penalties and an improving defence - the stats to make you think differently about Everton

We've got a special Royal Blue podcast for you as Sam Carroll and Dave Prentice are joined by Bradley Cates, the man behind the brilliant EFC Statto Twitter account (click HERE to follow). Bradley, an eight-time Countdown winner, has statistics so good that he even has a Liverpool legend - and boyhood Blue - asking for his help. And what he says he here won't half surprise our listeners - just as it did to Dave, whose own stats books are the stuff of ECHO legend, and host Sam. From a heartening stat that shows the (attacking) progression from last season to this, to the one about Richarlison's consistency, it really is fascinating stuff. Then there are the numbers behind Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty conversion, which may make you think twice about Marco Silva handing the spot-kick responsibility to another Everton player; the Jordan Pickford and Ellis Simms stats, and particularly the clean sheet and corner ones... the list is endless. And throw in some brilliant Prenno stories about Wimbledon in '94, Neville Southall and Wayne Rooney, and you've got a great Blues listen. Enjoy. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
