Many Everton fans have been left to bemoan an injury update on Blackburn Rovers loanee Jarrad Branthwaite.
As per the official website of the EFL Championship club, manager Tony Mowbray thinks that his season is over following an injury to his ankle that he picked up while in training.
Should Carlo Ancelotti play Branthwaite more for Everton?
The central defender will likely now return to the Goodison Park faithful in order to start his recovery, in what is a big blow not just to the Rovers but the Merseyside club as well.
Carlo Ancelotti would have liked Branthwaite to develop out on loan this campaign so that he could be part of his plans for the 2021/22 term, but this season-ending injury that the 18-year-old has picked up will stop any further progress that he may have made.

“Sorry Blackburn but when the curse is strong there’s nothing that can be done sadly”
“We’re so cursed”
“Seems the Everton curse followers them wherever they go”
“We really have had some terrible luck with injuries this season”
