Yannick Bolasie made his first Premier League appearance after a year as Everton were held to a 0-0 draw by West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.
The 28-year-old suffered a knee ligament injury against Manchester United on December 5, 2016 and was on the sidelines for more than a year.
After featuring for Everton's youth team against Dinamo Zagreb u23 this month, Bolasie who was an unused substitute against Chelsea was drafted as a replacement for ill Wayne Rooney.
And here is how the football world reacted on his return.
