‘Literally in love’: Some Everton fans discuss player who’ll be ‘such a baller under Ancelotti’

A number of Everton fans have been giving their thoughts on Twitter regarding the prospect of Andre Gomes potentially returning to action for the Toffees this weekend, as per Carlo Ancelotti’s comments to the Goodison Park media team.

The Everton midfielder suffered a dislocation fracture to his right ankle in the draw against Tottenham in November, an injury that had been expected to sideline him for the rest of the season.

However, Gomes’ rehabilitation has progressed well, the Portuguese maestro returning to training and playing an hour of a behind-closed-doors friendly at Finch Farm last weekend.

Everton have missed Gomes, as he is arguably their most talented player in his position, and Ancelotti has admitted that he is considering the 26-year-old for a starting role against Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend.

“My personal opinion is he is ready to play,” the Italian told the Everton media team.

“When a player has been out for a long period, I think it is better to start the game. He can prepare properly, (rather) than to put him on from the bench. But I have to speak to him and together we can find a solution.”

Ancelotti’s comments were music to many Evertonians’ ears on social media, though some urged caution given the severity of the injury he’s come back from.

Here is some of the reaction on Twitter:

 

Gomes initially joined Everton on a season-long loan from Barcelona on transfer deadline day in August 2018 and although he had to recover from a hamstring injury first, it did not take long for him to win over the Blues faithful as he began turning out for Silva’s side.

The Portugal international made his Everton debut in a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in October 2018 at Goodison Park and went on to make a total of 29 appearances – scoring one goal – last term, before sealing a permanent switch on a five-year contract with the Toffees in a £22million deal (official Everton website).
