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.
