We’re delighted to welcome injury expert Dr Rajpal Brar as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the injury situation at Everton...

Everton defender Nathan Patterson’s hamstring injury appears to be more serious than that of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, claims Dr Rajpal Brar.

The injury expert asserts that the right-back can be ruled out of the game against Bournemouth on Sunday, 28 May.

Sean Dyche refused to confirm on 20 May that the Scotland international was fit and said that the next couple of days will provide an indicator of his availability.

Speaking exclusively with Goodison News, Brar, a specialist in Physical Therapy and Sports Scientist, said, “Like Dominic Calvert-Lewin, he suffered a hamstring injury as well. He is ruled out and his [injury] sounds to be more serious.

He has recently issued an update on Calvert-Lewin and has gone to great lengths to explain his absence as he’s battling two different injuries.

However, when it comes to the hamstring, Patterson appears to be worse off and does not seem like he’ll be fit for this game.

With Seamus Coleman also ruled out for the season, it now remains to be seen what Sean Dyche decides to do.

Ben Godfrey is also an injury doubt so Mason Holgate may be thrown in to play at right-back or the Toffees boss could deploy a back three.

Patterson has struggled for regular game time in his first full season at Goodison Park, featuring in just 19 Premier League games.
