Everton travel to Leicester City on Sunday in the Premier League – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have rallied together to demand Moise Kean is recalled to the team.
The Toffees go into the weekend 16th in the Premier League table in shocking form so far this season, while opponents Leicester are flying high in second after 13 games.
Under-fire Everton manager Marco Silva watched his team lose 2-0 in their last game against Norwich City and now face a daunting trip to the King Power Stadium.
A selection of Everton supporters on social media have claimed that Kean should be back in the starting XI.
The centre-forward hasn’t played a single minute of the last four league games and has slipped down the pecking order at Goodison Park.
He arrived in the summer as a highly-rated talent from Juventus that was expected to lead the line, but the 19-year-old is yet to hit the ground running in English football.
The Italian is yet to score in his 11 senior appearances for the Merseyside club and it would be a big ask to throw him in against the Premier League’s strongest defence in Leicester, who have leaked only eight goals this campaign.
Here are some Everton fans on Kean:
Sounds like a depleted squad for Leicester. May force Silva’s hand to give Kean a game as well as Gordon and Beni a chance.

I think Gordan and Kean have to start and Iwobi through the middle we will need pace especially on the counter as i dont think we will see a lot of the ball

I can’t stand sigurdson deeper mate I think his passing is dreadfull an he turns play over so slow also can’t tackle but we don’t have any option really. DCL has done OK with no service. I’d love kean to start central
