Many Everton fans have been left to fume at some early team news ahead of their FA Cup home tie against Manchester City on Saturday evening.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match against Pep Guardiola’s men, Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Jordan Pickford, Robin Olsen, James Rodriguez, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Fabian Delph will all not be able to play any part at Goodison Park for the Merseyside club.
Will Everton win a trophy this season?
It leaves the Toffees a little light in the centre of midfield, while third-choice goalkeeper Joao Virginia will have to be called upon to try and stop what could be a particularly devastating MCFC attack.
Nonetheless, it seems as if a lot of Blues supporters have now given up all hope before the fixture has even started.
Everton fan reaction to early team news
These EFC fans fumed upon hearing of the early team news on Twitter, with one fan even going as far as to call it ‘brutal’:
“This is tough”
“Don’t even want to watch, it’s going to be brutal”
“Might as well just give them the win now”
“I’d take 0-3 right now”
