MATCH gets to know the classy EVERTON midfielder a bit better!
WHAT WOULD YOU BE IF YOU WEREN’T A FOOTBALLER?
TOM SAYS: “I’d be an artist of some sort. It’s not something I was really into at school, I’ve grown to like it more as I’ve got older but I’d definitely like to be a designer or a creator of something.”
WHO WAS YOUR HERO GROWING UP AS A CHILD?
TOM SAYS: “My father. He’s a good guy. And football wise, I’d say Zinedine Zidane. I used to love watching him and even now, I still watch clips of him. When I was growing up he was the player.”
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD?
TOM SAYS: “I love Chinese food. A friend of mine cooks it really well. I like most types of food really, I’ll try most things. My typical matchday meal is toast with peanut butter and jam, and a cup of tea.”
IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPERPOWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
TOM SAYS: “I’d chose to be able to fly. That would be cool!”
IS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU ARE SCARED OF?
TOM SAYS: “No. Everyone is scared of heights, aren’t they? But I’m not petrified. I do hate scary films though, they’re not for me.”
WHO IS YOUR BEST FRIEND IN FOOTBALL?
TOM SAYS: “I’ve got a few, I can’t just pick one because that’s mean! So I’ll say a football. The football is my best friend! I often share a room with Dominic Calvert-Lewin. He’s a great roommate and a great friend of mine. I didn’t know him before he joined Everton but we just clicked when he came here.”
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE CLOTHES YOU LIKE TO WEAR?
TOM SAYS: “Stylish. Colourful. Flamboyant! I’ve got a couple of go-to shops but I’m not telling you where because then other people will buy them!”
WHICH ANIMAL WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO BE?
TOM SAYS: “I’d like to be a lion, I think, because I’ve got a mane like one so I’m going for the lion look!”
WHO’S YOUR FAVOURITE MUSIC ARTIST?
TOM SAYS: “The Beatles. I couldn’t pick just one song though, there’s too many good ones!”
WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AT SCHOOL?
TOM SAYS: “I was a good kid, didn’t cause any trouble and worked hard. My favourite subject at school was maths, I really enjoyed the problem solving.”
