Everton’s Gylfi Sigurdsson Ruled Out With A Knee Injury

Everton will have to cope without the services of Gylfi Sigurdsson for a minimum of six weeks after he sustained a knee injury during the Toffees’ 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend. The Iceland international sustained the problem during the game, but he managed to compete the entire 90 minutes after taking treatment from the club’s medical staff.

Shortly after the game, reports from Iceland claimed that the midfielder had suffered a severe knee problem which could see him miss the summer World Cup finals in Russia, but Everton have seemingly dismissed this situation, by citing that he could return to action before the end of the season.

Ronald Koeman frustrated by Jose Mourinho's top-four comment

Everton boss Ronald Koeman has asked José Mourinho to 'get realistic' after he claimed the Toffees should at least finish in the top-four having spent £140m in the transfer window.


The Toffees were simply at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon as they succumbed to a 4-0 defeat. Goals from Antonio Valencia, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku, and Anthony Martial were sufficient to guide United to yet another 4-0 victory which puts them equal on points with Manchester City at the top of the table.

Koeman's side have now lost their last four games across all competitions, and the Dutchman's frustration was evident when discussing Mourinho's comments, he said: "I read the United programme and my colleague told me about Everton spending £140m and so they need to go for the top four. If there’s anybody in this room and outside and sees this as something realistic for us, please comment. Be realistic. I’m not happy how we started the season, but please be a bit realistic about Everton. We need time, but it’s difficult in football."
