Twitter divided as Everton boss selects prodigious duo for crunch clash with Man United

In the final fixture of a thoroughly entertaining weekend of Premier League action, Manchester United play hosts to Everton at Old Trafford in a 4pm kickoff.

The official starting Xis came through on Twitter around half an hour ago and one major talking point has emerged – Roberto Martinez’s decision to recall prodigious Toffees duo John Stones and Gerard Deulofeu.

The English defender’s seemingly uncontrollable ball-playing instincts have attracted much criticism of late and he’s not actually played a full ninety minutes for the Goodison outfit since the end of January, starting just one of their last nine fixtures across all competitions.

Likewise, injuries have limited winger Deulofeu to just two substitute appearances in the last two months, although he’d previously amassed an impressive two goals and eight assists in 23 Premier League outings.

Both are considered to be amongst Everton’s most exciting prospects but Toffees fans have produced mix reactions on social media. Here are some of the best responses to their inclusion for the visit to Manchester United.
