There is simply downplaying the importance of Everton’s trip to Cardiff City in the Premier League on Tuesday night.
It really is a massive, massive football match for the Toffees.
Marco Silva’s side have not actually been in action since they lost 1-0 at Watford on February 9, which was their third league defeat in a row.
Another loss against struggling Cardiff on Tuesday would lead to more pressure on Silva, who is not too popular with the fans at the moment.
Ahead of the clash in Wales, Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes attempted to raise the spirits of the fans with a post on social media.
Gomes is certainly one of the most popular members of the Everton squad with the fans and the overall response was pretty positive.
Many called on the on-loan Barcelona midfielder to inspire the Merseyside giants to all three points, which would be extremely welcome.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Pls Andre make it happen
