Marco Silva provides Andre Gomes injury update before Sheffield United

Andre Gomes injury update from Silva

Everton boss Marco Silva has given an injury update on midfielder Andre Gomes ahead of their clash with Sheffield United.

Gomes has been instrumental since signing for Everton initially on loan last season.

The Portuguese midfielder became a pivotal part of Marco Silva’s side and that convinced the Toffees to sign him permanently during the summer.

Though, his campaign hasn’t got off to the best of starts.

Gomes suffered an injury during the 3-2 win over Wolves at Goodison Park before the international break.

That ruled the midfielder out of Everton’s 3-1 loss to Bournemouth.

Now, ahead of Everton’s clash with Sheffield United at Goodison this weekend, Marco Silva has given an update on Gomes.

Gomes out for Sheffield United clash

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Silva revealed that Gomes is not fit to play this weekend.

He is, though, feeling better, and the club will monitor him on a day-by-day basis ahead of their League Cup meeting with Sheffield Wednesday next week.

“Andre Gomes is out and JP Gbamin is out as well,” Silva explained to the press, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

“It’s the type of situation we have to see day-by-day. He’s getting better, but he’s not in full training with the team.

“If he’s feeling better he’ll start to take the next step, but we have to look at him day-by-day to get him in the best condition possible.

“We have to see in two or three days and after that I can give more information to you.”
