Many Everton fans have been lauding a bit of early team news from Carlo Ancelotti ahead of their Premier League game at home to Leicester City.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference, Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that both Lucas Digne and Alex Iwobi are back and available for the match against Brendan Rodgers’ team at Goodison Park.
Is Digne the best left-back in the Premier League?
Both players were left out of the squad in the Merseyside club’s 3-0 home win over Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup but now both could be set to return to the starting eleven against the Foxes.
Digne has been eased back having picked up an injury that ruled him out of eight games in all competitions from November until early on this month, and so having him fully fit and available will come as a big boost to the Toffees.
Iwobi has seen a change in form as the Blues have won five of their last six matches in the Premier League when he has started and the one time he was not involved, they lost 1-0 at home to West Ham United (Transfermarkt).
Everton fan reaction to Digne and Iwobi news
These EFC supporters lauded the early team news on Twitter, with one fan calling it ‘big’:
“Good stuff, just need Allan back now”
“Iwobi and Digne back suiiiii”
