Everton have a number of injury doubts ahead of their Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur, according to injury expert Ben Dinnery.
Dinnery has rated Seamus Coleman and Nathan Patterson’s chances of playing at “50 per cent” ahead of the fixture at Goodison Park on Monday (3 April) (Premier injuries).
Dominic Calvert-Lewin is also a doubt, with the injury-prone striker still recovering from a thigh problem. The one confirmed absentee is Andros Townsend, with the 31-year-old not expected back until the of the season.
There’s a golden chance for Everton to take advantage of Tottenham’s current demise. Antonio Conte has been sacked and the North Londoners are once again struggling for form. A trip to a buoyant Goodison Park is probably the last fixture Spurs would’ve wanted.
Sean Dyche will be hoping Calvert-Lewin can get himself somewhere near full fitness for the fixture on Monday evening. The 26-year-old’s injury record has held his career back and it’s about time the England international finally maintained fitness for a considerable amount of time.
Everton’s lack of forward options is extremely concerning with Neal Maupay failing to hit the heights which were expected after his move from Brighton in the summer. If the Toffees can secure their Premier League survival, looking to land a prolific number nine is an absolute must.
The game against Tottenham marks the middle of a tough run of matches for Everton. With a point against Chelsea already on the board, Dyche will be hoping for at least one more clean sheet from the Spurs clash and trip to Manchester United.
