Everton winger Arnaut Danjuma has now sent an 11-word message to fans following last night’s 2-1 win over Doncaster Rovers.

The Toffees found themselves 1-0 down at half-time after a dreadful display in the opening period, before £26m forward Beto levelled the tie.

Dutch international Danjuma, who is on loan from La Liga side Villarreal, then grabbed a late winner to spare Everton’s blushes.

The 26-year-old took to Twitter at full-time to send a message to Everton fans after scoring his first goal for the club.

Danjuma tweeted: “Let’s make sure today marks the start of a beautiful journey.”

The Netherlands international had a poor start to the game on the left-wing and cheaply conceded possession on a number of occasions.

However, Everton looked like a different team in the second half and once Beto equalised, it seemed there was only going to be one winner.

Danjuma was unlucky not to score when his spectacular effort from range struck the bar, but the 26-year-old made no mistake with his second attempt, slotting home after some good work from £15m man Neal Maupay.

The loan star has looked bright in Everton’s opening Premier League fixtures this season and has been one of the few positives after a disastrous start to the campaign.

The Toffees are yet to score a Premier League goal and are without a point in three consecutive games, though getting off the mark last night will have no doubt done Sean Dyche’s side wonders.

The arrival of Beto has given Everton a huge lift, and former player Alan Stubbs insists that many top-flight defenders ‘won’t like playing against‘ the 6ft 4in centre-forward this season.

With the Blues finally off the mark, hopefully Danjuma and Beto will have their scoring boots on this weekend as Everton take on Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
