Everton winger Yannick Bolasie has poked fun at an Everton fan on Twitter after he revealed that he would get an angry birds tattoo if Oumar Niasse came on to score the winning goal on Saturday.
The Toffees secured a 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Goodison Park thanks to two goals from Niasse after he replaced the injured Wayne Rooney on the pitch in the second-half.
Blues fan, Iwan Jones, tweeted a crying laughing emoji alongside: “If Oumar Niasse comes on to score a winner today I’ll get Angry Birds tattooed on my wrist.”
The Angry Birds logo has featured on the arm of the Everton jerseys since their clash against Manchester United after Rovio Entertainment was named as the club’s first sleeve partner.
The supporter’s promise was quickly picked up by Bolasie, who has been sidelined with a serious knee injury since December last year, and responded brilliant on his personal Twitter account after the match.
“We are waiting,” the Merseyside winger tweeted with a blue emoji. “Don’t bottle it.”
We are waiting 🔵 don't bottle it 😎 https://t.co/LjscwWGTk4

Saturday’s victory over the Cherries ended the Toffees’ frustrating losing streak in the Premier League after they previously suffered defeats against Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United in consecutive fixtures.
Their 2-1 win marked the second lot of three points in the competition after they beat Stoke City 1-0 in the opening weekend of the campaign.
