Everton trio tipped to be back from injury to play v West Ham
Everton stars Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, and Seamus Coleman have all been tipped to be back in action this weekend.
Ben Dinnery, a Premier League injury expert, revealed on the Premier League Injury News show that the trio should be back in contention for Rafael Benitez’s side against West Ham.
All three have been missing for the last few games, and the Toffees have had to find a way to cope without them, but everything seems to be looking a lot better for the trio.
Dinnery said: “We’re cautiously optimistic.
“Ahead of gameweek seven, we saw Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and Seamus Coleman all training individually down at Finch Farm.
“There was never any serious hope of them being involved before the break, but they have had this extended period to train.
“I would say all three players should be in a really strong position to return to Rafa Benitez’s Everton squad this weekend.”
Good news for the Toffees.
It seems as if some of Benitez’s injury problems are easing, and three key players could be involved against the Irons on Sunday.
Calvert-Lewin has scored three goals in his first three games, while Richarlison has scored one and provided one assist.
So, putting them back in the side should make the Toffees more dangerous going forward.
However, it is also important for Coleman to be back because he is the club’s only first-team right-back.
There is concern over Lucas Digne, though, so Ben Godfrey might be required to shuffle across to play on the left.
However, overall, this sounds like great news for the Toffees, and we look forward to seeing all three back in action as Everton look to continue their early top-four push.
Dinnery seems pretty convinced that all three have a good chance of being available, so now we just have to see what Benitez says in his press conference.
