Some Everton fans have been blasting Andre Gomes as he was given a start by Carlo Ancelotti versus Manchester United.
As per the official Twitter page of the Blues, the 27 year-old has started alongside Abdoulaye Doucoure in the heart of the midfield.
Should Gomes start for Everton?
The Merseyside club will be hoping that they can get through the Carabao Cup quarter-final tie against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team at Goodison Park, but some EFC supporters are not happy that he has started the game, crucifying the Portugal international throughout the buildup to kick-off and first-half.
The central midfield player had failed to score or assist for the Toffees in his past nine games in all competitions so far in the 2020/21 term (Transfermarkt), which needs to be improved upon given that he faces competition from the likes of Allan, Doucoure and Tom Davies to play in the centre of the park on a regular basis.
Everton fan reaction to Gomes starting
These fans blasted him on Twitter after learning that he was to start the match, with one fan claiming that he is a ‘crab’:
“Gomes incoming back passes.”
“That doesn’t say Gomes does it?”
“No idea why he is messing with a winning side for such an important cup fixture. Gomes and Gylfi together, I hope Doucoure has a red bull before the game as he will need wings to cover them 2.”
“He’s a crab”
“Nobody is happy to see Gomes I assure you”
“Tom Davies Should be starting ahead of Gomes easy”
