Many Everton fans have been left fuming over some early team news ahead of their game at home to Watford in the Premier League this afternoon.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match against the Hornets at Goodison Park, Rafa Benitez has revealed that Yerry Mina will now miss it, as he has to follow COVID protocols after coming back from international duty with Colombia, while he also felt a tight hamstring in training.
Should Mina play ahead of Holgate or Keane at Everton?
This comes after separate injury setbacks to Abdoulaye Doucoure and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, meaning that the Merseyside club will now have to try and find a way to get all three points without three key members of their squad.
Mina’s importance can be highlighted when the Toffees conceded a goal from a set piece against West Ham United at home last time out to lose 1-0, as the six-foot-five-inches tall central defender certainly gives them a threat in both boxes.

“We’re actually gonna get hammered”
“It goes from bad to worse to even worse”
“Can’t wait for a 3-0 drubbing against Watford”
“Circus. The club is a joke.”
“Hands up if your club’s a joke”
“Hate my life”
