Everton fans react on Twitter to Eto'o performance against Krasnodar - 'Saved by Eto'o!'

Samuel Eto'o scored to give Everton a point in the Europa League against FK Krasnodar yesterday.

Everton went into their game against FK Krasnodar yesterday afternoon under a little bit of pressure.

Roberto Martinez’ side were impressive against German team Wolfsburg winning 4-1 and they went into the match off the back of a draw in the Merseyside derby last weekend.

Everton battled hard but went behind during the game before Samuel Eto’o kept his cool and showed his experience, equalising with a late strike to secure another very impressive result for the team.

Some questioned Eto’o’s motivation for joining Everton earlier in the summer but he’s produced some effective and professional performances for the club after playing for Chelsea last season.

Everton’s focus will now switch back to the Premier League and a trip to Manchester United this Sunday.

It’s a difficult game for the club because of the travelling time needed to get back from Russia, the lack of preparation time and the fact United have had far longer to rest due to not being in Europe this season.

Everton will be well supported for the game and they always produce determined performances under Martinez, but it will be difficult given their defensive record and United’s exciting attack.

If the defence can hold firm then Eto’o may be the man to make the difference once again up front whether he starts the game or comes off the bench late in the second half when legs have started to get tired.

Everton are currently way down in 15th place but three points would take them above Manchester United and up well inside the top half of the table, as the team continues their ultimate quest to achieve Champions League football for next season.

Here’s what Everton fans made of his performance on Twitter last night against Krasnodar with a point which maintains the momentum built from recent games.
