Everton: Medical expert drops Yerry Mina injury news

Everton: Medical expert drops Yerry Mina injury news -Everton News

A medical expert has now dropped some more injury news for Everton involving Yerry Mina.

The Lowdown: Townsend joins injury list

Andros Townsend has now joined the Goodison Park faithful’s injury list alongside Mina, as he will miss the rest of the season after damaging his anterior cruciate ligament in the 4-0 loss away at Crystal Palace in the FA Cup over the weekend.

Should Mina play ahead of Holgate or Keane at Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

As for Mina, Frank Lampard told The Liverpool Echo last week that the Colombia international is still ‘a few weeks away at best’.

The Latest: Dinnery on Mina

Speaking to Football Insider, Ben Dinnery, who runs the Premier Injuries site and has a background in medicine and data analysis, has claimed that Mina should be starting light work next month, as he looks to recover from his injury:

“Mina’s place in that Everton team cannot be understated.

“All of the data shows that when he plays, they get more points. The issue is trying to keep him fit.

“He’s had only eight Premier League starts this season, only two this year, and only four since September.

“This latest setback came after return from another injury. So you ask, how do you manage this player?

“There are factors that will influence when he returns to play, such as the availability of Ben Godfrey, Mason Holgate, Michael Keane.

“Also, where Everton are in the table in two or three games time. If they get a couple of wins, that can change the complexion.

“Light work for Yerry Mina won’t be far away, maybe mid to late-April. But other factors come into consideration when deciding when he can play again.

The Verdict: Worrying

These are certainly worrying times for the Merseyside club, given Townsend’s latest injury, on top of Mina potentially not returning to training until the end of next month.

Of course, the central defender will not be ready to play games straight away, and Frank Lampard’s team will only have four matches left, plus any rescheduled fixtures, by the time May comes.

Only the biggest Everton fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Don Hutchinson sold to?

There is no doubt that they are a better side when he is in it, as four of the Blues’ seven wins in the Premier League have come when he is playing, and the fact that he was missing in the 5-0 drubbing away at Tottenham Hotspur, after which Jamie Carragher called the defence a ‘Championship back four‘, says a lot for his credentials.

Nonetheless, Lampard will just want him back fully fit for their last few fixtures.
