Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that Yerry Mina is set to miss the next few weeks with an adductor muscle injury.
However, the Everton boss is confident his injury list will ease with the return of Jordan Pickford, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Allan, Andre Gomes and Joshua King for Friday’s clash with Tottenham at Goodison Park.
Mina was forced off on 58 minutes during the Blues’ goalless draw at Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday night to add to a squad also without Abdoulaye Doucoure (foot), Fabian Delph (tendon), Bernard and Jean-Philippe Gbamin.
“Yerry Mina had a muscle problem on his adductor and I don’t think he will be available for a few weeks,” said Ancelotti. “The others, I hope to recover. For sure, Pickford will be available, I hope Allan and Gomes will be available, Calvert-Lewin and Joshua King.”
The Toffees boss also revealed that Gbamin suffered his knee injury during an accidental clash with Lucas Digne in training at USM Finch Farm and will be out for the rest of the season.
“Listen, we are really, really sad [about JP Gbamin’s knee injury] because he was training well, showing good quality and was happy,” said Ancelotti. “He’s going to have a scan. I don’t know how long but for sure the season for him is finished but he’s a really strong guy and I hope he can recover soon and play.
“Digne fell down on his knee unfortunately and I think he has a medial ligament problem.”
