Many Everton fans have been left in agreement with Jamie Carragher after he did some analysis on the Goodison Park faithful on Monday Night Football.
The Liverpool legend said (via Toffee TV) that it would be a ‘disappointment’ if the Merseyside club do not qualify for European competition for the start of the 2021/22 term due to the quality of manager they have in Carlo Ancelotti, but thinks that the Toffees will fall short of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.
Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
The Blues are currently sitting in seventh spot in the Premier League table at the moment on 43 points, just two off of fourth-placed West Ham United with a game in hand (BBC Sport).
While qualifying for Europe’s elite competition is of course a possibility for Ancelotti and his side, they still have the likes of reigning champions Liverpool and big spenders Chelsea to compete with, while also potentially looking over their shoulder for more challengers.
Everton fan reaction to Carragher analysis
These EFC supporters agreed on Carragher’s analysis on Twitter:
“No he’s absolutely right there. Let’s not forget this is Carlo’s first full season, what he’s done already is lay the foundations for the future.”
“Spot on for me, after this season I’ll be disappointed if we don’t get Europe.”
“Think he has a point to be fair. Our priority is Europa, anything else is a bonus.”
“He’s spot on tbh”
“Think he’s right tbf, but you never know”
