An eagle eye Everton fan was able to spot out a now-deleted tweet from the club’s official Twitter account seemingly testing a starting XI graphic, forcing in the club to issue an apology to supporters in thinking it was early team news for this weekend.
As expected, lots of supporters jumped on the deleted tweet and saw the funny side to it as fans reacted to the gaffe on social media.
Here is what some Everton fans had to say on Twitter…

This puts my regression testing in perspective….when things slip through to production the impact isn't like this.
