Pickford subbed at Everton: pressure from Van Dijk's injury or just a rest?

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 347

Jordan Pickford, Everton's goalkeeper, was a substitute for Everton's defeat by Newcastle. On social media there was a lot of debate about why this decision was made.

Everton are no longer the leaders in the Premier League. They were humbled at St. Jame's Park and all without their first-choice goalkeeper on the pitch.

It surprised everyone that Jordan Pickford was substituted. Olsen took his place and, on social media, several rumours began to spread about this decision by Ancelotti.

Many said that the goalkeeper was not focused on the game. The reason for this was the pressure from Liverpool fans after Van Dijk was seriously injured

However, Ancelotti cleared up the doubts before the match: "I just want to rest him for this game and give Olsen a chance to have some minutes".

In addition, 'Carletto' confirmed that Pickford will be the starter against United next weekend: "Jordan will return for the next match against Manchester United".
