Everton: Frank Lampard shares Andros Townsend injury update

Everton: Frank Lampard shares Andros Townsend injury update -Everton News

Everton manager Frank Lampard has shared a major injury update regarding Andros Townsend following the Toffees’ 4-0 defeat to Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The Lowdown: Townsend struck by injury

During the FA Cup quarter-final clash against his former club, the 30-year-old had to be substituted in the 17th minute after he seemingly twisted his knee in an agonising manner.

Clearly in a lot of pain, he had to be carried to the changing rooms by a number of Everton staff, sparking fears of a serious injury.

The winger was applauded off by both sets of fans – he left Palace for the Toffees last summer, ending a five-year spell with the Eagles.

The Latest: Lampard’s worry…

Lampard has expressed his worry over the possibility that Townsend could be out of action for a long time, which would come as a body blow in Everton’s fight for Premier League survival.

As quoted by The Athletic, the Toffees manager said of the winger’s injury: “It looks bad. A knee injury. He got his studs caught in the grass and we’ll scan him over the next day or two but the early signs are that it will be a bad knee injury.”

The Verdict: More injury issues for Lampard

Since arriving on Merseyside, Lampard has faced a number of injury issues at the club. Although they have now returned to action, the likes of Ben Godfrey, Demarai Gray and Dominic Calvert-Lewin had been unavailable for a time during the 43-year-old’s fledgling reign at Goodison Park.

This adds to the current injury list, which involves long-term absences for Tom Davies and Cenk Tosun, and an unknown return for Fabian Delph. Yerry Mina is set to return next month, which will come as a defensive boost for the side, but Townsend’s injury leaves Everton short of right wingers.

Therefore, this will come as a big blow to Lampard, who may now need to put his trust in Anwar El Ghazi, who has played a grand total of 11 minutes since his January move from Aston Villa.
