Everton team news update

Prior to taking on the Foxes, Duncan Ferguson has provided an Everton team news update.

Lucas Digne was forced off 25 minutes into Everton’s last tie vs Man United, and Ferguson has confirmed that the Frenchman will not be fit for Wednesday.

Ferguson then spoke about Fabian Delph and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The caretaker boss stated that he thinks the Leicester tie will come too soon for Delph, but they are hopeful of having Sigurdsson back:

“Lucas got a strain on his groin area so how long it’s going to be, I’m not quite sure, but obviously he won’t be fit for Wednesday.

“Delph is closer but I think the game will come too soon for him.

”We’re hopeful on Gylfi. We’ll wait and see. That’ll go right to the wire, I think.” As quoted by Everton’s official website.
