Many Everton fans have been left to hail some early team news ahead of their home game versus Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
Speaking to evertontv (via the official website of the Goodison Park faithful), Carlo Ancelotti has claimed that he Republic of Ireland international “will be back” to play against Sean Dyche’s team at the weekend.
Should Everton keep Coleman?
The Merseyside club greatly missed their captain in their last match, a 2-0 away loss at the hands of Chelsea, a side with whom they are currently fighting for to finish in the UEFA Champions League qualification spots come the end of the 2020/21 term.
Coleman will offer a much more attacking threat than Mason Holgate, who has been filling in for the 32-year-old at right-back and is predominantly a central defender by trade.
Nonetheless, it will be great to see him back on the football pitch for the Toffees once more.
Everton fan reaction to Coleman news
These Blues hailed the news of his return on Twitter, with one EFC supporter even going as far to claim that it was “excellent”:
“Good news, 100 mph straight out the blocks on Saturday COYB”
“Good. Will add a more attacking threat than Holgate. Give him a rest.”
“Great news that”
“He really makes whoever plays RW better, Iwobi looks like a different player with Coleman”
