Some Everton fans have ben left lauding a bit of early team news ahead of tonight’s game with Leeds United as it has been revealed that both Ben Godfrey and Mason Holgate will start the game.
That is according to Carlo Ancelotti, whose comments on the duo in his pre-game press conference ahead of their trip to Elland Road were relayed by the Liverpool Echo.
Should Godfrey start for Everton?
Both players were left on the bench for the Merseyside club’s 2-0 loss to Newcastle United at Goodison Park in the Premier League last time out and both will be itching to get back into action, as the Toffees certainly missed them in that home defeat.
The Blues have won more games in the 2020/21 term when the pair have played, with Godfrey winning 8/15 of his matches in total in all competitions and Holgate 6/10.
EFC are certainly a much stronger side with them in it, and the news that they will both start against Marcelo Bielsa’s men will surely come as a very welcome boost.
