Everton fans fume as Schneiderlin starts against Liverpool

Everton go into today’s Merseyside derby on the back of being utterly outclassed by Manchester City in a 3-1 defeat at Goodison Park last weekend.

Sam Allardyce’s side sat back but were unable to lay a glove on the champions-elect as Pep Guardiola’s men ripped through the Toffees’ weak resistance.

The visit of a heavily-rotated Liverpool does give Everton an opportunity to right those wrongs – it’s a cliche but form does go out of the window in a derby – if they can produce a better performance.

That mission starts with Allardyce’s team selection and it would be fair to say that the Goodison fans are not impressed and the inclusion of one man in particular has attracted much ire.

That man is Morgan Schneiderlin, who is deeply unpopular among the Everton fans but has been preferred to Idrissa Gueye to protect the home backline.
