The festive period of English football is one of the most magical times of the year, but for Everton fans, it could well be one of the worst.

With Everton yesterday being drawn with Leicester City in the quarter-finals of the League Cup, the Toffees now find themselves with an incredible hard slate of fixtures for December which now sees the Merseyside club take on the Foxes twice as well as top-six sides Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United, as well as Liverpool.
The six-game fixture list caused many Everton fans on social media to shudder, with the Toffees already in 16th place in the Premier League table, their slip in the division could continue further if Marco Silva’s side fail to deliver during this difficult fixtures.
Here’s what some Everton fans had to say about their fixture list for December, with some supporters fearing the worst is ahead after a poor start to the Premier League season…

Santa will be bringing me bottom 3, a toxic goodison, And weary looking Marco Silva ( please be gone before Christmas), and an exit from the only cup we have a realistic chance of winning. When do we ever have a good Christmas? That goodison derby on the 23rd was the worst
