MOTD COMMENTS NOTES
Martin Fisher: It sounds silly, but bear with me. The city of Huddersfield looks confident in serving, but the mood there can be better than now in Everton.
Another early exit from the FA Cup in conjunction with a too familiar inconsistent league heightened the gloom at Goodison Park.
While Evertonians expect better, Huddersfield’s ambitions are less sublime.
Just take off to the top of the flight was a monumental achievement, staying there just as impressive. They need a small miracle to survive again, but the criticism of head coach David Wagner was insufficient, the sadness at his departure is sincere, and now there is an intrigue about what Jan Severt brings to the table.
TYPE FROM DUGOT
Head Coach Huddersfield Town Jan Severt: "I knew the players very well [at last week’s training camp] in Portugal. There is unity and it is good to see.
“This is progress that will take time, but the players really understood my idea of football so far. It's nice to see how open they are to new things. ”
“I have once experienced the atmosphere of the John Smith Stadium, but I’m very happy to feel it tomorrow.”
Everton manager Marco Silva about recent disrepair: “I am not happy with the last month and a half, but I do not panic. We, as a club, cannot panic, even if we are not happy, even if the fans are disappointed. ”
"I, too, but I do not panic, because we, as a club, cannot panic if we want to do the right thing in the future."
The boss of the new terriers Jan Severt has a little time to work with his players, and you just know that they will have a reaction.
Since Huddersfield is located at 10 security points, they are so far from Severt that they can afford to play Everton. His side has nothing to lose now.
