Seamus Coleman update
The Republic of Ireland are set to return to action at the back end of March.
They will face off with Slovakia on March 26th, as they look to book a place at the upcoming Euros.
Ahead of their key clash with Slovakia, Republic of Ireland boss Mick McCarthy has spoken about Everton and Ireland’s Seamus Coleman.
The full-back was forced off after 28 minutes vs Manchester United this past Sunday, with that tie ending 1-1.
And whilst the Everton faithful may have been hoping that Coleman’s injury wasn’t too serious, according to Mick McCarthy, the defender looks set for a spell on the sidelines.
The Republic of Ireland boss claims to have been told that Coleman could be out for four to six weeks:
“Seamus is struggling for the games. I’m told it could be four to six weeks.” As quoted by BBC Sport.
Chelsea vs Everton
Everton’s next tie, which Coleman now looks set to miss, is away to Chelsea on Sunday the 8th of March.
Carlo Ancelotti will be on the touchline for the game despite being sent off vs Man United, according to BBC Sport.
As per the BBC, the Italian was charged with misconduct by the FA after being shown a red card following Sunday’s game, and will be fined £8,000, if he accepts the charge before Thursday’s deadline.
The Toffees head into the tie 11th in the Premier League, just three points off 7th placed Tottenham.
As for Chelsea, they are currently clinging on to 4th spot.
