With Everton taking a 3-1 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend with Richarlison hitting a brace of goals, and Seamus Coleman getting himself on the scoresheet as well, the day contained numerous positives for fans.
Not least a substitute debut for Colombian international centre-half Yerry Mina who continues his search for fitness following the foot injury sustained at the World Cup that he arrived with.
Building towards the clash against Chelsea next Sunday at Stamford Bridge, manager Marco Silva’s options grow with Mina’s improved fitness and going into what will be a tough clash we have no fresh injury issues to deal with – at least as I type.
PhysioRoom’s injury table only contains three entries as we head towards the match.
Jonjoe Kenny and Phil Jagielka are described as being out with a knock but they have a timeframe of a week so may come back into Silva’s outside thoughts ahead of the game, or return to full training very early next week at the outside. The final issue is James McCarthy who continues to build his own fitness levels following his lengthy time out injured.
Hopefully, the table will have no fresh entrants as the week progresses.
