Fans react to Schneiderlin display in Everton win against Leicester

By Alex Stevens

Morgan Schneiderlin made his Everton comeback in their 4-2 Premier League win against Leicester on Sunday – and fans took to Twitter to hail his display.

The £24million January signing has made a big impact since joining and was sorely missed as Everton dropped five points in their previous two matches against Liverpool and his former club Manchester United.

He was immediately recalled to the starting XI in Sunday’s TV clash against Leicester as Gareth Barry dropped down to the bench.

Schneiderlin lined up alongside Idrissa Gueye and teen sensation Tom Davies in a three-man midfield, which dominated against the champions.

Leicester went 2-1 up after 10 minutes but a Romelu Lukaku double and goals from Davies and Phil Jagielka secured the three points for the hosts.

Fans took to Twitter to universally acclaim Schneiderlin, who played 73 minutes before being replaced by Barry, on his return to the side.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Everton’s win drew them level on points with Arsenal (54), although Arsene Wenger’s side have three matches in hand and a superior goal difference.

The Toffees are seventh in the league, seven points adrift of Manchester City in fourth.

In other Everton transfer news, the club are close to reaching an agreement to sign a brilliant striker.
