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...
Jack Harrison was back in action for the reserves and will be available for the Everton v Aston Villa game, according to Dr Rajpal Brar.
The 26-year-old has been injured since his move to Goodison Park over the summer but that did not cause any issues with his medical.
However, he featured against the Norwich under-21s on Friday and will now be available for the Carabao Cup game against Aston Villa on 27 September.
Discussing his situation exclusively with Goodison News, Brar, a doctor in physical therapy and a sports scientist, said:
“I’ve heard on Harrison that he’s back on the grass and recovery is going well and he’s training with the first team.
“He did have a hip injury which can be complex and could be the cause of his timeline being delayed before he eventually returned.
“He was back in action for the under-21s so I think he’s now going to be available for the senior team right away.“
Harrison was a regular fixture for Leeds United in their three seasons in the Premier League.
He was an ideal Marcelo Bielsa attacker as he was capable of pressing from the front, tracking back and also being a goal-scoring threat.
The English attacker is competent playing on either side of the attack so he could be deployed as a right or left winger by Sean Dyche.
