The Liverpool Echo journalist Sam Carroll has been left ‘absolutely gutted’ by some early Everton Team News that has now emerged before Thursday’s action.
The Lowdown: Delph out
Taking to Twitter, The Athletic journalist Patrick Boyland has shared that both Fabian Delph and Yerry Mina are still out injured, and will therefore miss their game at home to Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
They are already without long-term injury absentees Andros Townsend and Nathan Patterson, while both Jarrad Branthwaite and Salomon Rondon are suspended after getting themselves sent off in the 3-2 defeat at home to Brentford last time out.
The Latest: Carroll reacts
Taking to Twitter, Carroll took particular notice of the news on Delph, claiming that he is ‘absolutely gutted’ the former Aston Villa and Manchester City midfield player will not be able to play a part in the match:
“Never thought I’d say it but I’m sat in work absolutely gutted Fabian Delph isn’t playing tomorrow. He has been vital to recent wins + good performances. Doucoure / Allan + potentially one other really need to step it up a gear or five.”
Should Everton cut their losses on Delph?
The Verdict: Blow
It certainly is a blow to be without Delph for this game given some of his recent performances.
