Demarai Gray cost Everton just £1.7m from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer but has already proved to be one of the bargains of the season.

The former Leicester winger has five goals to his name already, including a spectacular stoppage-time winner against Arsenal on Monday, and boss Rafael Benitez thinks he has the potential to play for England.

“I knew about his quality and potential for a while,” said the Toffees boss.

“I was following him in Germany and knew about his potential. Sometimes its about the right moment with the right manager. In this case I trust him and he trusts me.

“Still he has to carry on working as hard as he’s doing already, and to be more consistent. Because if he can do that he is a potential player for the England team.”
