The 19 year old was a second half substitute as Ronald Koeman gave him his chance in the 2-1 win over Arsenal at Goodison Park last night.
Having represented England at Under 20 level, making his debut in front of 40,000 Evertonians was nerve-wracking, and he admits to having had butterflies as he warmed up.
“I’m delighted to finally make my Premier League debut,” he said.
“Something I’ve dreamt of as a kid, as you would expect, and to get the result and in the circumstances in which I came on, makes it even better.
“I’ve had a great reception from the fans twice now, the two times I’ve been on the bench, so I have to thank them for that.
“Obviously, it was Dunc who gave me the shout initially and I had butterflies a little bit but I was just sent out to warm up and then I was on.
“We were trying to get the three points, which we did, but I was told to run hard, get the ball back, defend, attack, the works really.”
