Everton dealt Seamus Coleman injury blow


Premier League outfit Everton have this evening been dealt something of a blow on the personnel front, it has been confirmed.

The Benitez era underway

The Toffees have of course enjoyed an altogether positive start to the new campaign.

On the back of Rafael Benitez’s installation on the club’s bench, Everton have thus far looked solid if unspectacular, notching 7 points from an available 9 in the Premier League.

Not only that, but the Merseysiders booked their spot in the 3rd round of the EFL Cup, courtesy of a 2-1 downing of Huddersfield Town.

Next up for Benitez and co., meanwhile, comes a Premier League meeting with Burnley at Goodison Park.

The Blues will no doubt be confident in their chances of keeping alive their solid start to the campaign up against Sean Dyche’s outfit, with the Clarets having managed just a solitary point from their own three fixtures to date.

Concern for Coleman

As outlined above, however, with just eight days remaining ahead of the matchup, Everton, on Sunday, have been dealt something of a blow.

This comes on the personnel front, in the form of an announcement regarding the fitness of captain Seamus Coleman.

After featuring for his country in a meeting with Azerbaijan during the week, the Republic of Ireland have since confirmed that their star right-back has picked up an injury, and been ruled out of proceedings versus Serbia on Tuesday as a result.

Coleman, for obvious reasons, should therefore be viewed as a doubt to feature against Burnley tomorrow week, too.
