Demarai Gray gave Everton the 2-1 victory in the 92 minute of the game against Arsenal and is on the lips of all the British media. The 25-year-old Englishman faced on the left, eluded rivals and hit the goal to uncover the madness at Goodison Park and that his team achieve the long-awaited victory after eight games without being able to do so in the Premier League.

A great season in Championship where he displaced Federico Macheda and was characterized by speed and technique made Leicester set their eyes on Gray and take him in exchange for 5 million pounds. His first season in the Premier League was a dream because, like all promise, he was a regular substitute and they managed to be crowned with Claudio Ranieri’s long-remembered 2016 squad.
They spent five years defending the Leicester jersey. With only one season where they gave him minutes of confidence, but full of ups and downs in the game. More than good plays, he is remembered for being the first player to score a goal after the death of the club’s historic owner, Khun Vichai, and dedicating it on his shirt. Eventually he was relegated to the second team in his senior year and, as his contract ran out, Bayer Leverkusen appeared to pay a comfortable 2 million for Damarai Gray.
