Many Everton fans have been left to bemoan an injury update on Tyler Onyango as David Unsworth confirmed that the Toffees think he has fractured his leg.
The injury was suffered in an FA Youth Cup game over Manchester City, in which the Goodison Park outfit eventually won 1-0 with a late goal.
Nonetheless, Onyango looked to have suffered a bad injury, which has not gone down well with numerous supporters of the Merseyside club.
The central midfielder made his senior debut for Carlo Ancelotti’s team in the FA Cup fourth round win over Sheffield Wednesday earlier in the season, and at just 18 years of age, he is certainly an exciting prospect that the Toffees have on their hands.
Should Everton play Onyango more?
Nonetheless, the club will hope that it is not serious and wish the teenager a speedy recovery.
