Nothing fazes Everton new boy Muhamed Besic, according to his manager Roberto Martinez.

The 22-year-old was thrust onto the big stage with his first Premier League start in the derby and performed admirably – and his boss says that is exactly what he expected from the midfielder.
He said: “Nothing fazes him. It’s easy to forget he only turned 22 this month but he is a very mentally strong player with a lot of belief in himself.
“Mo has a big-game mentality and he’s very focused. He has everything to suggest he can go on and become a big player for us.
“Against Liverpool I thought he was very controlled and not overwhelmed by the occasion in any way. For him it’s the bigger the game, the better.
“This is a young man who rose to the occasion at the World Cup when he was playing in the Maracanã Stadium for his country in a high-profile game against Argentina.”
