Horror news for Everton striker Henry Onyekuru

Everton & Henry Onyekuru

Back in the summer Henry Onyekuru joined Everton from Belgian side KAS Eupen.

The striker was on blistering form last season as he scored 22 goals in Belgium’s top flight.

Everton paid £6.8 million for the striker, while Onyekuru has been loaned to Anderlecht for the season.

Earlier in the season, as Everton were struggling in the wrong end of the table, some wondered whether Onyekuru should be recalled to Goodison Park.

But after this weekend’s action in Belgium, Onyekuru is unlikely to be playing football in the next few months.

Anderlecht 1 – Eupen 0

In a meeting between Henry Onyekuru’s former and current employers on Friday, Anderlecht beat Eupen 1-0.

Anderlecht full-back Francis Amuzu was the surprise match winner for RSCA.

But towards the end of the match the hosts suffered a major blow as Onyekuru was forced out the game on a stretcher.

Onyekuru’s bad news

On Saturday night the bad news had been confirmed.

Everton striker Onyekuru will need surgery on his knee injury for a torn medial ligament.

That could well rule the striker out for the rest of the season.

Onyekuru has scored nine goals for Anderlecht on loan from the Toffees.

Everton 0 – Chelsea 0

Sam Allardyce maintained his unbeaten record at Everton on Saturday against Chelsea.

Big Sam has recorded four wins and two draws since he was appointed as Ronald Koeman’s successor.

Chelsea arguably had the better chances at Goodison Park without finding the target.

Eden Hazard came close to breaking the deadlock, while Ashley Williams sent a header onto his own bar in the final stages of the game.
