Everton: Patrick Boyland reveals Ben Godfrey injury blow

Everton: Patrick Boyland reveals Ben Godfrey injury blow -Everton News

Patrick Boyland has revealed a fresh injury blow for Everton on Ben Godfrey ahead of their match at home to Manchester City in the Premier League this evening.

The Lowdown: Godfrey making progress

Earlier this week, the Goodison Park club tweeted that the 24-year-old was ‘making progress‘ as he looks to step up his recovery from injury.

The former Norwich City ace has not played since the 4-1 win at home to Brentford in the FA Cup earlier this month, and he had rarely missed a match this season before then (Transfermarkt).

Nonetheless, Frank Lampard will be hoping to have him back in the squad as soon as possible.

The Latest: Godfrey injury update

Taking to Twitter on Friday, The Athletic journalist Boyland revealed that Godfrey is still “a couple of weeks away” from returning to action.

There was better news on Abdoulaye Doucoure and Demarai Gray, though, with both players back in training and “with the Everton squad” ahead of this evening’s match.

The Verdict: Blow for Everton

It is certainly a blow to hear that Godfrey is still a fortnight away from being fully fit, despite making  progress in training.

Only the biggest Everton fans will get 100% on our 2021/22 season quiz! First up, who scored the Toffees' first goal?

The defender is currently ranking highly among his team-mates in terms of average tackles, clearances and blocks per game in the top flight so far this season (WhoScored), so Everton could certainly have done with his defensive fortitude against Pep Guardiola’s men.

Nonetheless, he will now miss the Man City clash, and probably their FA Cup tie against Boreham Wood and forthcoming Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur, which will no doubt come as a disappointment to Lampard and the Toffees’ fan base.
