Boost for Chelsea: Potential Richarlison blow for Everton

Huge news for Chelsea if true

Chelsea may have been handed a huge boost ahead of their clash with Everton on Sunday with news that Richarlison has missed out on training today.

The Brazilian striker has been instrumental for Everton this season and is one of the Premier League’s top goalscorers.

Despite joining Everton for a fee above £40million, Richarlison is looking like a bargain for the Toffees.

There were big question marks over the player and that transfer fee following a lacklustre season at Watford.

Though, Marco Silva had struck up a great relationship with the player and did all he could in the summer to sign him.

Huge criticism of that big transfer fee followed but now many seem to be eating their words with his recent performances.

His next game is set to be up against Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea but now there is talk he could have suffered a blow.

Cause for concern from the Toffees?

That is because Sky Sports reporter and Everton fan Alan Myers has posted on social media today revealing that Richarlison may not have trained on Thursday.

That has lead to many sad Fantasy Football players on social media.

The cause for concern stems from an injury the player looked to have picked up in the win over Brighton.

The player rolled his ankle during the first half but still went on to score two goals in the game.

Whether his absence is related to that or not, we don’t know, but it could mean a huge blow for Everton and a massive boost for Chelsea.
