Bues boss believes Everton replaced Man United new boy Marouane Fellaini impressively.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says Saturday’s opponents Everton can cope with the loss of Marouane Fellaini after signing Gareth Barry and James McCarthy.
Fellaini joined Manchester United for £27.5m on transfer deadline day but new Toffees boss Roberto Martinez moved quickly to replace the Belgium international, snapping up Barry on a season-long loan from Manchester City and McCarthy in a £13m deal from former club Wigan.
The duo could both make their Everton debuts against Chelsea at Goodison Park and Mourinho believes the Merseyside outfit have done impressive business.
“They have a good squad, still. They did very well in the last days of the market,” the Portuguese told The Independent.
“They got two very good players for midfield, with different profile, ages, future. Barry is good and experienced. McCarthy is a young player with a big projection. When you lose a good player but you sign two, I don’t think that’s a problem.”
