Everton will keep tabs on the fitness of Andre Gomes ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash with Manchester United.
Gomes was substituted after 60 minutes of the Toffees’ last game against Newcastle United, where he had also conceded a penalty.
It’s believed Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti withdrew the former Barcelona man due to a knee problem.
It’s understood that it is only a slight knock to the knee which is causing trouble, but it may still be enough to rule the Portuguese out of Everton’s next game against Manchester United at Goodison Park.
Gaffer Ancelotti is hopeful that Gomes can shake off the issue ahead of Saturday, particularly with the likes of James Rodriguez, Ben Godfrey and Seamus Coleman recently sidelined.
Gomes has suffered with more serious injuries in the not-too-distant past – the midfielder broke his leg in a challenge with Tottenham’s Son Heung-Min just under a year ago.
