Two Everton midfielders out for minimum of 4 weeks


After suffering injuries within the last week, Everton midfielders Abdoulaye Doucoure and Fabian Delph will each be out for a minimum of 4 weeks.

The injury to Doucoure occurred within the second half of Everton’s 1-0 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday, while the injury to Delph occurred in training.

Duncan Ferguson, the interim manager, suddenly has a scarcity of fit midfield players, with Tom Davies also sidelined for a chronic period.

Allan, Andre Gomes, and Jean-Philippe Gbamin, in addition to Tyler Onyango, can be found.

An Everton statement read: “Everton midfielders Abdoulaye Doucoure and Fabian Delph are expected to be out for at least 4 weeks after sustaining injuries.

“Frenchman Doucoure was forced off within the sixty fifth minute of Saturday’s Premier League match against Aston Villa at Goodison Park resulting from a groin problem.

“Subsequent tests have revealed the 29-year-old requires a period of rehabilitation under the care of Everton’s medical staff at USM Finch Farm.

“Meanwhile, Delph sustained a thigh injury during a training session this week and is now undergoing treatment with the club’s medical team.”
