Premier League circuit breaker could be blessing in disguise for Everton

Everton could receive a massive injury boost on Monday with Premier League clubs potentially planning to postpone an entire round of festive fixtures.

Last week, six of the 10 Premier League matches were called off amid the latest wave of the pandemic.

According to reports from The Athletic, Premier League clubs are planning to postpone games for the fixtures of December 28-30 as well, along with the Boxing Day fixtures.

The clubs who had completed their matches for this week were severely affected by the Omicron wave of Covid-19.

If the games are postponed till the end of the year with a circuit breaker being in effect, it would serve a massive boost for Everton.

Rafael Benitez’s side are struggling horribly in the league for the past three months.

The Toffees have picked up just one win in their past 11 games in the Premier League, and the squad have suffered from injuries.

The likes of Richarlison, Demarai Gray, Yerry Mina, Seamus Coleman and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are currently injured, and they could use this period to regain full fitness.

The break will provide Everton with the chance to regroup, and rethink their strategies going forward.

Also, with no football matches around, this is an ideal period for Benitez to sort out his transfer plans and make necessary arrangements.

By the turn of the year, Benitez can hope to get a fully-fit squad. The results can expect to improve if they can add a few players in January.
