It was confirmed via the club’s official Twitter account that Everton’s games against Tottenham and Leicester City had been moved to fit TV slots.
As expected, some fans weren’t happy with this move and took to social media to complain about the decision.
Here is what some Everton fans had to say on Twitter…
Excellent one day less rest before the derby ????♀️????♀️????
