We are back to having fans in the stadium, but only a limited number.
The impact of fans can’t be overstated, and we saw 2000 Chelsea fans give the team the impetus last time out to come from behind and beat Leeds United 3-1.
Now, Chelsea will be on the receiving end, with Everton set to welcome 2000 fans at the Goodison Park on Saturday against Chelsea.
Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti, has admitted that he’s pleased to have fans back at the stadium. Although, he’s not sure the amount of noise that can come from 2000 fans.
“In general, it is really good news and, personally, I am really pleased our supporters are here, they are back,” Ancelotti told the ECHO.
“It is only 2,000 but in the last period when our performances were not so good, we needed help. Above all at home against United and Leeds and we could have more points on the table with our supporters.”
Explaining how the fans can help his side, Ancelotti added: “We [him and the players] didn’t talk about this but I know, and we knew, that Goodison Park is a fortress for Everton and there is a lot of passion in there.
“I don’t know how much noise 2,000 fans can make but, for sure, they will help.”
