Everton: Fans fume over team news as four players out -Everton News

Many Everton fans have been left fuming as some early team news emerged ahead of their game at home to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match against Spurs on Sunday afternoon, Rafa Benitez has now confirmed (via Phil Kirkbride) that Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes are all injured and not available to take on Antonio Conte’s Lilywhites.

Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?

All four players made at least 29 appearances in total for the Goodison Park faithful over the course of the 2020/21 season, showing how important they are to the squad, and to have them all out really gives Benitez a lack of options to choose from.

Only the biggest Everton fan will know who all these players signed from! First up, Jean-Philippe Gbamin...

In addition, the north Londoners will be expected to have a new manager bounce with the arrival of Conte, which will make the game doubly difficult for the Merseyside club.

Everton fans on team news

These Toffees fumed as the team news was shared on Twitter, with one Blues supporter claiming that it is indeed ‘bad news’:

“With no DCL, Doucoure or Mina we simply aren’t good enough. No matter how good Rafa is or isn’t we don’t have the quality. Remember this come Sunday night. The transfer window is massive for us”

“The issue is with the alleged fit players that have been consistently sub standard. Godfrey, Digne, Coleman, Allan, Iwobi, Keane and Rondon. Frighteningly poor squad of players”

“A bit of a worry when you are relying on Delph and Tosun to change our fortune.”
