Everton handed Abdoulaye Doucoure injury boost
Everton have, on Tuesday, been handed a boost regarding the injury suffered by Abdoulaye Doucoure recently.
Everton dealt Doucoure blow
Everton started their season in solid form and were in and around the top-six following the first seven league games of the season.
A key reason for this would be the form of Abdoulaye Doucoure.
Despite operating as a central midfielder, the Frenchman would score two and provide four assists in his first seven Premier League games of 2021/22.
As a result, it was of course a huge blow when it was revealed last week that Doucoure had suffered a stress fracture and was set to be out for around six to seven weeks:

As per Fabrizio Romano, the Everton midfielder will be back earlier than expected and is preparing his comeback for four/four and half weeks’ time:
