Loads of Everton fans have been reacting to a tweet celebrating the anniversary of James McCarthy joining the club, and they cant wait to have the Irishman back on the pitch.
Everton drew 1-1 with struggling Huddersfield on Saturday, and it’s fair to say fans were not happy with the performance.
Philip Billing gave the visitors the lead, and after Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s equaliser it seemed like the Toffees would go on and take control of the game.
Marco Silva’s side created very little clear-cut chances though, and fans are already praying for McCarthy to return to what was a very lacklustre midfield.

Sunday marked five years since the tough tackling midfielder joined the club, but he has been out of action since January with a broken leg.
The Liverpool Echo reported this summer that he had returned to training, so while there is no recovery timetable just yet, one would hope the 27 year-old is getting closer to a return to action.
Fans are all heaping praise on the 41-cap ace, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

a fit McCarthy alongside Gueye would make us a lot more solid in midfield. I think we’re weak in that department
