Supporters of Everton have flocked to a Twitter post from the Toffees’ Portuguese midfielder, Andre Gomes.
On Wednesday, the 26-year-old middleman quote-tweeted a video message from himself which was posted by the club (per Everton) and stated ‘stay safe, stay strong’ (per Andre Gomes), which had fans gushing.

Is Andre Gomes currently the most talented central midfielder that the Toffees have?
Yes, he's the best
No, there's better
In the 11 appearances that Gomes has made for the Toffees in the Premier League so far this season, he has been the fifth-worst performer with a 6.32/10 average rating (per WhoScored).
However, following the Portuguese midfielder’s post to Twitter wishing everyone well (per Andre Gomes), fans continued to air their love for the former Barcelona man.
Oh how im missing you and everyone at The Grand Old Lady x

What do we think?
As can be judged from the tweet from Gomes and the response from Everton supporters, it is clear that there is a strong affinity between the player and the fans, which is great to see.
However, when Gomes has featured for the Toffees in the league this season he has delivered slightly underwhelming performances with a 6.32/10 average rating (per WhoScored), so hopefully the midfielder can improve upon that when football returns.
