Everton boss Rafa Benitez reveals return timetables for Calvert-Lewin & Doucoure as four stars ruled out of Man City clash

Everton boss Rafa Benitez reveals return timetables for Calvert-Lewin & Doucoure as four stars ruled out of Man City clash

Manchester City vs Everton

Manchester City and Everton are set to face off in Sunday’s early Premier League kick-off this weekend.

The Toffees will head into the game having been on a pretty dire run of form of late.

Rafael Benitez and co. enjoyed a superb start to 2021/22, which culminated in suggestions that they may be able to challenge for a European berth.

However, their form has since fallen off a cliff, with Everton having now failed to pick up a win in their last five league outings – losing three and drawing two.

And now, they are set to face a Manchester City side who, though not at their scintillating best of late, have nevertheless scored 22 and conceded just six in 11 league outings this term.

As a result, Everton picking up a win this weekend looks somewhat unlikely.

Rafa Benitez on Calvert-Lewin & Doucoure

Before taking on Manchester City, Rafa Benitez would speak to the press on Friday.

One of the main talking points in his pre-match press conference came in the form of injury news.

The Merseysiders have had some seriously poor injury luck of late, which could have contributed to their slump in form – with the absence of Dominic Calvert-Lewin having been particularly harshly felt.

And, speaking on Friday, Benitez confirmed that such woes are set to continue this weekend, with all of Calvert-Lewin, Andre Gomes, Yerry Mina and Abdoulaye Doucoure remaining out of action:

The Spaniard then provided further insight into when DCL and Doucoure could be back, with the former out for another three weeks, and midfielder Doucoure ‘one to two weeks maximum’ away from a return:

“Each is different, they are getting better. You have to be sure they are fine. Doucoure is a metatarsal, so the bone has to heal. One week, two weeks maximum he will be fine. Dominic, three weeks.”
