Everton fans are positive after the club were drawn against Leicester City in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.
The Toffees secured their place in the pot with a comfortable 2-0 win over Watford this week, thanks to goals from Mason Holgate and Richarlison.
The place in the quarter-finals may have eased the pressure slightly on Marco Silva, with the club in major trouble in the Premier League, sitting just two points above the drop zone.
However, despite their poor form throughout the year, it seems as if the Everton fans are confident they can progress to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup. A lot of supporters have discussed the home draw and alluded to their confidence ahead of the tie, with one fan saying they would “fancy us against most at home.”
Many other supporters have breathed a sigh of relief after they avoided the big guns such as Liverpool and Manchester City. Although, with Leicester sat in third and fresh from their 9-0 win over Southampton, it will not be an easy draw by any means.
However, a lot of the Everton faithful are confident nonetheless.
Here’s what some of them have had to say…
Good draw for us that. Leicester have been rotating a lot in the cup. Home draw. No excuses for the lads. How much do they want it?

Decent draw that. Wouldn’t be too sure about Utd and LFC getting through their ties if they put out understrength sides. As for us we just need to channel the spirit of the West Ham game and we’ll be fine 👌🏽
