Fans of Everton have been reacting to training footage which was released by the Toffees on their official Twitter account.

On Tuesday, the Goodison Park club posted footage of the first team doing a warm-up exercise and also various goals scored during training matches (per Everton).

Alongside the footage of the warm-up exercise and training matches, there is also footage of Moise Kean, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin taking part in a shooting drill.

To accompany the video, the Toffees’ Twitter account stated: ‘Sun, fitness and finishing’.

The Toffees have been back in training since mid-May after it was revealed on the 18th that Premier League shareholders had voted to allow small-sided sessions (per Everton).

A further statement last week then revealed that contact training was allowed again (per Everton) and evidence of this was seen in the footage.

The day after the announcement was made on contact training returning, it was revealed that the league’s shareholders had voted for Premier League matches to resume on 17th June (per Everton).

After the footage of the Toffees in training was shared to social media, though, supporters aired their reactions to the behind-the-scenes clips.

We'll start easy for this Everton kits quiz, which shirt sponsor did the Toffees announce that their partnership with would be being brought to a premature end earlier this season?

With the planned matches on 17th June being Aston Villa vs Sheffield United and Manchester City vs Arsenal, the Toffees’ season will likely resume over the following weekend.

Will the Toffees improve upon their current 12th position in the Premier League over the remainder of the season?

Yes, it could happen

No, not going to happen

In the same day as the footage was released by the club, though, it was also revealed by the Toffees that Yerry Mina had suffered a muscle injury and will be absent for ‘several weeks’ (per Everton).

So, after Everton used the word ‘fitness‘ in their tweet alongside the training video, some supporters believed that it was a poor choice of words.

As can be seen in these responses from some of the Goodison Park faithful, it appeared that the club’s training footage divided opinion amongst fans.
