Everton fans take to Twitter to praise Silva after avoiding derby embarrassment

Everton fans take to Twitter to praise Silva after avoiding derby embarrassment

Everton fans on Twitter were delighted with their performance yesterday. The Toffees have had it out for Marco Silva on more than a few occasions for his tactical setup of their side, yet they couldn’t fault him yesterday as he had his side playing intense attacking football and didn’t just sit in and settle for a draw, despite the result.

Silva’ start to life on Merseyside was strong, yet it was the reverse fixture against Liverpool at Anfield that sparked something in the Toffees. After Jordan Pickford’s blunder in that game, it’s like someone flicked a switch in the Bluenoses as their performances and results plummetted, yet they now look to be getting back on track with four points out of six won this week and back-to-back clean sheets.

One point for their efforts against their bitter rivals may not have been the win they were desperate for, and they still find themselves on a 19-game run without a win against their Merseyside rivals, but the performance was one to be proud of and the fans have rightly been praising Silva for it, as he couldn’t have got it more right on a day where the fan’s scrutiny would have been at it’s worst had they lost.

You can read the Toffees’ verdict on the way Silva had them going here:

Everton fans everywhere will have been proud of their side yesterday and will hope to build on the result with a win against Newcastle next time out.
