Everton news: Huge injury blow for Sean Dyche as Toffees boss provides Seamus Coleman update
Sean Dyche does not expect Seamus Coleman to return for Everton this season after suffering knee ligament damage in Monday's 2-2 draw at Leicester.
Coleman posted on social media to say he had avoided damage to his anterior cruciate ligament, indicating the injury is not as bad as first feared. But Dyche said it was likely to keep him out of the remaining four fixtures all the same. "It's still a ligament injury that needs sorting," Dyche said. "Obviously everyone feared it was ACL, it is not so that's good for him." Asked if he would return this term, Dyche added: "I doubt it." Everton head into the weekend 19th in the standings and just one point from safety. The Toffees take on Brighton on Monday night as they look to boost their survival hopes. Dyche's men will close out the season with games against Manchester City, Wolverhampton and Bournemouth. Everton, who haven't been relegated since 1951, have won just six of 34 Premier League games this season. The good news for the Merseyside outfit is that only one points separates them from 16th-placed Leicester City. The bad news is the fact Everton are winless in seven games - a run which includes three defeats and four draws.
