Many Everton fans have been left to fume as Patrick Boyland relayed a fixture update for May from the Goodison Park faithful.
As per a tweet from The Athletic journalist, the Merseyside club will play Aston Villa at home on Saturday 1st May at 8pm and West Ham United away on Sunday 9th at 4:30pm, with a home match against Sheffield United just two days later.
Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
It puts a big strain on travel for Carlo Ancelotti’s team, and this is not to mention that their game in hand away at Villa has still not been rescheduled, meaning that the Toffees are going to be suffering a mass fixture pile-up at the end of the 2020/21 term as they look to chase qualification for European competition for next season.
This could have a huge impact on a squad who are already struggling with injuries, so it’s no surprise to see fans flocking to respond on Twitter.
Everton fans on fixture scheduling
These Blues fumed upon reading the update, with one EFC supporter even going as far as to claim that it was ‘ridiculous’:
“Never knew that, ridiculous. And these 8 o’clock games on a Saturday need sacking off!”
“Our last four games have all been Friday and Mondays which is annoying me!!!”
“If we played our last game and our next game on the weekend as it should be then we could’ve had a game today. Scheduling has been pathetic all season.”
“That’s an absolute joke!”
