   5 - Five of Coleman's last Premier League 7 goals have been scored at home.


Coleman was the highest scoring full back in the Premier League last season (2013/14).

Coleman is expensive and 2 of Everton's next 3 Premier league matches are away from home against teams that finished in the top 7 last season (Liverpool & Manchester United).

Despite having scored two own goals against Southampton (2-0) and Chelsea (3-6) this and last season respectively, Coleman has been involved in (scored/assisted) in 2 goals as well as picking up a clean sheet against West Brom (0-2) in the Premier League this season. 

From GW 8 to GW 12 Everton face last season's bottom 10/newly promoted teams.  

Coleman is expensive and 2 of Everton's next 3 Premier league matches are away from home against teams that finished in the top 7 last season (Liverpool & Manchester United) but may well be worth considering in the long run given his exciting, attacking prowess as well as being able to deliver the goods at both ends of the pitch.
