'Best player in the world' – Everton fans rave at first-half display of one man v Liverpool
Everton supporters were delighted with the display of Yannick Bolasie in the FA Cup third round game at Anfield on Friday night.
The love was clear for everyone to see as fans of the Blues took to social media to express their delight of seeing the frontman back in the fold.
The Blues forward only came back into the set-up on Boxing Day in the 0-0 draw against West Brom – he had been out of the side for 12-months after he ruptured his cruciate knee ligament against Manchester United.
Everton went into half-time 1-0 down after a James Milner penalty, but fans will be hoping that Bolasie can inspire their side towards an unlikely victory.
Here is a selection of the best tweets from Everton fans at half time:

Tosun or any striker we bring in will thrive of a fully fit Bolasie! Some great crosses #EFC

It was a non-eventful first half until Liverpool were rewarded a penalty and James Milner converted in the 35th minute.
The Toffees were minus new signing Cenk Tosun which was disappointing for fans who were looking forward to seeing the Turkish striker.
