Many Everton fans reacted to comments made by manager Carlo Ancelotti as his side prepare for their Premier League clash against Manchester United on Saturday night.
Speaking during his press conference, the Italian tactician confirmed that the 26-year-old will be absent when the Red Devils turn up at Goodison Park due to a rib injury sustained during his side’s 2-0 defeat to Newcastle.
Will Everton miss Jordan Pickford vs Man Utd?
Pickford has started all but three Premier League games during the 2020/21 campaign and the Toffees’ reserve shot-stopper Robin Olsen will be called into action once more.
Everton have conceded four goals in their last three games and made up for the defeat to the Magpies with a solid win against Leeds United. They will be hoping to continue in that fashion against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, and Olsen’s impressive display against Marcelo Bielsa’s side suggests they will have a good chance.
With this in mind, supporters were pleased with the update about Pickford, who has received plenty of flack from segments of the Goodison Park faithful in recent years.
Pickford setback pleases these fans
“Another Olsen masterclass incoming”
“Great news Pickford out. Calvert started scoring again. Bring on United”
“Win-win that then”
