Abdoulaye Doucoure's Instagram post has left fans in stitches after Everton win

Abdoulaye Doucoure's Instagram post has left fans in stitches after Everton win

Doucoure was part of the Everton side that beat Brentford 1-0 on Saturday.

Everton midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure's latest Instagram post left fans in stitches after his side's 1-0 win over Brentford.

The victory - the Toffees' fourth win in five matches - has ensured Everton continue their streak of competing in every Premier League season.

Idrissa Gueye's 60th-minute strike was the difference between the two sides at Goodison Park, in what was remarkably Everton's only shot on target in the afternoon.

And victory also extends manager Sean Dyche's 100 per cent win record at the club whilst wearing a tracksuit - although the man himself has played down the significance of his recent attire change.

Their run has instead been built on the return to form of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has scored in three of his last five games, and a stoic defence that has kept three clean sheets in a row.

But one of Dyche's key players since his arrival at Goodison Park last January is former Watford midfielder Doucoure, who has been pushed into a more advanced role and has six league goals to his name this term - albeit without netting since December.

And after Saturday's win over Brentford, he took to Instagram to send a motivational message to supporters.

He wrote: "Talent 10%. Mental 90%. Never give up."

Of course, the message behind the post was to indicate that talent can only get you so far, and playing at the top level consistently is far more about mentality than anything else.

But some fans made the same joke in response to Doucoure's post.

Speaking after safety was secured for Everton, Dyche commented: "We have not been given an easy ride, and I am super proud.

"The knocks keep coming for me as well - this job is not the way it has been pitched to me or what has happened.

"To refocus on the new job in hand, I have been pleased with that and how we handled it."
