Everton’s decision to sack Marco Silva and bring in club legend Duncan Ferguson has massively paid off.
The Scotsman, who spent a total of 10 years at Goodison Park during his playing career, was in the dugout to watch his team shock Chelsea 3-1.
It’s hard to see that result happening under Silva.
But from the first minute, it was obvious that Everton were up for the fight.
The Toffies were straight in Chelsea’s faces from the first whistle and their physicality and passion throughout the game helped carry them to victory.

But it wasn’t just on the pitch we saw that passion.
Ferguson was great to watch on the touchline and celebrated his side’s goals brilliantly.
In celebrating the second strike, he left his technical area, punched the air and picked up a ballboy before swinging him around. Check out the hilarious clip below:
Great stuff. Ferguson went even more mental enjoying the third, sprinting down the touchline before a different ballboy jumped into his arms.
You can see that below:
Absolutely class. When your manager is acting like that, you almost have to play at the top of your game.
They were so much better on the day and three points mean the team are now out of the relegation zone and up to 14th.
Talk about a new manager bounce. Roll on the next game and we’ll be hoping that Ferguson is still on the sideline celebrating widely.
