Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Rashid Latif believes that Everton midfielder James Rodriguez has been “the main difference this season so far”.
Everton signed Rodriguez on a two-year contract in September and the 29-year-old has made an immediate impact, having scored three goals and notched up three assists in four Premier League games and one EFL Cup match.
The Toffees are currently at the top of the Premier League standings with 12 points as they have won all four of their matches thus far.
Given the team’s exceptional start to the 2020/21 season, Latif heaped praise on Rodriguez, who plays for Columbia in international matches.
James Rodriguez is the main difference this season so far.

“James Rodriguez is the main difference this season so far,” Latif said on Twitter.
Everton’s next match will be a clash against arch-rivals Liverpool, who are the reigning Premier League champions, at Goodison Park on October 17.
