Everton and France midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin returned to the Toffees starting line up today and Everton fans have reacted with delight on Twitter.
Schneiderlin lines up for Everton to make his eighth start and 10th appearance for the club since his £20million move from Manchester United in January.
In that short time he has become a crucial figure in the Toffees’ midfield and has one goal to his name – netting in the 3-0 win over West Brom.
The former Southampton star and 15-time France international played just 11 minutes of Premier League football this season prior to his move to Merseyside.
Everton are looking for their first win since March when they take on Leicester this afternoon, after a disappointing derby loss to Liverpool and a 1-1 draw with United.
A win will see them close the gap on Jose Mourinho’s side, who currently occupy fifth spot.
The Frenchman missed their clashes with Man United and Liverpool and the Goodison faithful are happy to see him return.
Here is a selection of their Tweets:

Really hope Schneiderlin is fit enough! Brings so much to our team and a glaringly big miss when he doesn't play

Schneiderlin being back is better than that time I lost my virginity. Fantastic stuff.
