Ferguson has been a background figure at Everton in recent years, on the support staff of four managers who ended up being dismissed.
Ferguson was known as a rough and tumble centre-forward for Everton, but he is actually an astute and highly thought of coach, and has the chance to showcase that when he takes charge of the club for the first time. It was an unbelievable experience.
"Whoever it is [the new manager] they are coming to a fantastic football club when fans create an atmosphere like that".
"I think you saw on the touchline how enthusiastic I was, but you know it's one game, one result".
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was dismayed by his side's bad defending in their 3-1 defeat at Everton.
Richarlison fed Djibril Sidibe wide and moved into the six-yard box to meet the cross with a bullet header that ignited Goodison after five minutes.
The visitors were clearly caught off guard and needed some time to grow into the game, but Everton had a bee in their bonnet, always appearing to be first to the ball both in attack and defence.
Equally fast and effective football nearly delivered a second goal for the Brazilian soon after but the striker just failed to get on the end of Theo Walcott's cross.
Calvert-Lewin should have doubled hosts' lead in the 16th minute, but his feeble shot after being released by Theo Walcott was straight at Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin came close to doubling their lead, while at the other end of the pitch a mistake from Michael Keane nearly gifted Chelsea a route back into the match and Tammy Abraham only just missed two risky crosses.
Chelsea hit back instantly through Mateo Kovačić, who squeezed a volley past an unsighted Jordan Pickford to half the deficit at Goodison Park.
As such, he has predicted a 1-1 draw for the early Premier League kick-off on Saturday and it remains to be seen whether the Toffees will show up after their recent losing run.
