Insane Compilation Of James Rodriguez Vs Brighton Proves He Is The Summer's Biggest Bargain

James Rodriguez stole the show for Everton vs Brighton & Hove Albion and his individual highlights are an incredible watch.

The 29-year-old joined Carlo Ancelotti's side from Real Madrid in the summer and it has been reported it was a free transfer.

Despite the worries he would take time to adjust to the Premier League, he turned on the style at Goodison Park as Everton romped to 4-2 victory on Saturday.

Rodriguez scored two while providing an assist for Yerry Mina, but he showed off so much more.

Alexander Marin on YouTube & @BnSComps on Twitter compiled the Colombian's best bits together and he is one of the Premier League's most in-form players right now.

Rodriguez was given time on the ball and punished Brighton's back three with a wide array of passing and deft touches.

Despite not being the quickest, World Cup Golden Boot winner Rodriguez had a knack of being in the right place at the right time.

He finished the game with 94 per cent passing accuracy from 72 touches, while winning five fouls and creating two chances.

The Toffees dominated early on but a mistake from Jordan Pickford allowed Neal Maupay to bundle home an equaliser.

But the scores were only level for six minutes as Mina headed home a Rodriguez free-kick.

Rodriguez then netted twice in the second half when arriving late in the box to give his side a 4-1 lead.

Yves Bissouma's long ranged effort in extra-time gave Brighton a consolation late on.

Rodriguez has now bettered his return from all of last season at Real Madrid and speaking to the BBC, Ancelotti admitted he is not surprised.

"As I said on the first day, the players with quality have not a problem with that [settling in]," the Italian said per Goal.

"The quality is there because football is not so complicated. The pitch is always the same, the opponents are always 11, the ball is the same, the goal doesn't move.

"Football is simple. It is not complicated."

Do you think James Rodriguez could be one of the best signings this season?
