Everton boss Rafa Benitez is pleased with what he's seen from Anthony Gordon.

Benitez says Gordon has a future in his plans.

He said, "He has said that he realises he has to work hard and that is the way. If you have talent, you have a chance to become a really good player, and if you understand that your chances are even better. I'm really pleased with him, he is working and training; he will be an important player for us."

On the international break, Benitez also said: "It is the same for everyone. You feel a little bit frustrated that you cannot carry on as you want, then you are waiting to see if you have any injuries.

"It is what it is, and we have to make sure we manage every player and every game and training session. After (the breaks) finish, we have lots of games at Christmas; modern football is like that, too many games and you have to travel everywhere and it is quite demanding."
