Many Everton fans have been left raging as some early team news has emerged ahead of their game away at Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of their match in the Premier League, Rafa Benitez has now revealed (via Phil Kirkbride) that Yerry Mina, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Andre Gomes and Dominic Calvert-Lewin all remain out injured and therefore will not play any part in the fixture.
Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
All four players made at least 29 appearances for the Goodison Park faithful last season (Transfermarkt), showing just how important they are to the team and the squad, but now the Merseyside club face even more of an uphill battle without them.
Reigning champions City are currently in second spot in the table, three points behind Chelsea, and will be hungry to catch up to them with all three points at the Etihad Stadium, and with four key players out for the Toffees, it should be an easier task for them.
