Many Everton fans have been left tormentd as Paul Joyce relayed an injury update on Abdoulaye Doucoure.
As per a tweet from The Times journalist, Carlo Ancelotti has said that the former Watford man could be out injured for between eight and ten weeks with a small fracture in his foot.
Has Doucoure been a good signing for Everton?
It means for the Goodison Park faithful that unfortunately he is most likely going to miss the rest of the 2020/21 campaign in what is a big blow to the Merseyside club.
The central midfielder has been nothing short of immense ever since his move to the Toffees from the Hornets in last summer’s transfer window, winning no fewer than 4.3 of his duels per game in the Premier League so far this season as well as averaging 1.8 tackles and 1.3 interceptions per match (Sofascore).
Everton fan reaction to Doucoure update
These Blues fumed upon reading the update on Twitter, with one Everton supporter even going as far as to claim that it was ‘typical’ of the Toffees’ luck with injuries throughout the season:
“Pain. Immense pain.”
“This season man”
“Oh man, not our top 4 chances!”
“We can’t have nice things, can we?”
“Just when we get Allan back. All so typical of our historical bad luck with injuries. Not going to get to see the Davies, Doucoure, Allan midfield three I spoke of with @PlanetFPLPod after all. Not this season anyway.”
