Everton winger Bolasie issues rallying call on Twitter

Yannick Bolasie has been unable to help Everton on the pitch due to injury, but he has been very vocal of his support on social media.

Ronald Koeman’s side have not had the best start to the season having picked up just four points from a possible 15 in the Premier League.

They are also on the backfoot in the Europa League following their opening 3-0 defeat to Atalanta in the group stage.

The Toffees had an opportunity to boost morale on Wednesday night when they took on Sunderland at home in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored twice, while forgotten man Oumar Niasse netted with eight minutes left on the clock to help the Merseyside outfit to a 3-0 win over their Championship opponents.

It was a much-changed side, but it gives the club some confidence heading into Saturday’s league match against Bournemouth at Goodison Park.

Bolasie will not be in the squad as he continues to recover from a knee injury that has kept him on the sidelines for almost 11 months.

However, the former Crystal Palace man is feeling optimistic for his teammates after witnessing Wednesday’s triumph.
