Sean Dyche provides Everton injury news with two key absentees

Everton injury news
Sean Dyche has confirmed that the duo of Seamus Coleman and Ben Godfrey would miss the trip to the Amex Stadium as they continue their battle for survival.

Toffees captain, Seamus Coleman is likely to miss the rest of the season after suffering a knee ligament injury in the 2 – 2 draw against Leicester City on Monday night.

The 34-year-old’s injury is not as serious as initially feared, however, he would be unable to participate in his team’s last four Premier League matches.

Dyche said: “Coleman will likely be out for the remainder of the season. He has still suffered knee ligament injury, just not ACL.

“It’s still a ligament injury that needs sorting. Obviously everyone feared it was ACL. It is not so that’s good for him.”

Sean Dyche also commented that Ben Godfrey would be unavailable for the trip, but Amadou Onana could make a return after recovering from a groin injury.

Dyche added: “Amadou Onana has trained the last couple of days, he’s fit. Ben Godfrey is out with a groin injury.

“Ben Godfrey will take a bit of time. Seamus as you know [is injured]. Everyone else is fit.”

Everton are second-bottom in the Premier League and would need to push for some positive results to stay in the Premier League.
