Marco Silva’s lineup for Everton’s clash against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium certainly raised a few eyebrows yesterday.

Fans saw the return of Michael Keane from his skull fracture and Cenk Tosun dropped out following his recent performances and the criticisms he’s taken from within the fan base as he struggles to find his scoring boots.

Tom Davies took the armband and that caused consternation of its own as you’d expect given the contradictory thoughts expressed about his development of late.

As can be seen from the above comments on social media, one big question stands out and that concerns where are some of our summer captures.

We knew a couple arrived with knocks, but Keane has recovered a little quicker than I thought he was expecting to as we’re still within the ‘month’ I thought he’d be out, and didn’t think he’d come back into things until at least next weekend when you factor in full contact training.

But as above no one has seen hide nor hair of Yerry Mina yet, so is his injury far worse than expected or has he just suffered a minor set back in his recovery?

With Everton losing the tie 2-0, the above questions and criticisms are only going to get louder in the coming days.
