Even having a competent goalkeeper can often be the difference between good and great sides, and there’s plenty to suggest that Everton could make a serious run at the top four this season.
They’ve legitimately got one of the best managers in the world in Carlo Ancelotti, Dominic Calvert-Lewin has turned into a goal machine and James Rodriguez will always create chances.
The defence also looks like it could be a solid unit, but Jordan Pickford keeps making errors and he’s now leading the league in errors that have resulted in goals:

Everton can’t keep relying on scoring a load of goals each games so they will need to see out some tighter games too, and having a keeper who could let you down at any moment is never a good thing.
The Mirror recently linked Everton with a move for Man United’s third choice keeper Sergio Romero, and lots of fans have urged Everton to make that move after Pickford had another howler today:
I heard a lot of stuff about Romero today after Pickford mistake. What a signing that would be. Most under appreciate Keeper in the league

Maybe Everton, with little time left in the transfer window, should go for Romero on loan from Man United – competition at least for Pickford, GK their biggest issue currently https://t.co/Z2VfDtvrhQ

Dean Henderson has impressed at Man United in the Carabao Cup so his position as number two is secure, so Romero should be available and he could make a big difference to this Everton team.
