Cape Town - Everton forward Oumar Niasse won the praise of his manager for a tireless showing in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.
The Senegal international scored the equaliser just before halftime
at Selhurst Park to rescue a point for the Toffees against the Premier
League’s worst-off side.
"Oumar has desire, determination, and that willingness to run and run until you drop," Unsworth told EvertonTv.
"That is a prerequisite for how I want every single player to go about their job. He is a great guy as well.
"I have had the privilege of working alongside him and now all his hard work is paying off in performances and goals.
"He is a handful because he never stops running. His fitness is so
good, he works tirelessly for the team – he is a team-player and that is
what this Club has been built on."
Despite the points picked up in London, the Toffees are still just
three points above the drop zone having won only once in their last six
matches, and three times all season.
They take on Italian side Atalanta in the Europa League on Thursday,
and face Southampton away in the Premier League next weekend.
