Everton dealt huge injury blow as defender Ben Godfrey ruled out for THREE MONTHS after horror injury in Chelsea defeat

 

EVERTON have been dealt a huge injury blow with defender Ben Godfrey sidelined for THREE MONTHS following a horror injury against Chelsea.

Godfrey broke his leg just ten minutes into Everton’s 1-0 Premier League defeat.

The 24-year-old ended up worse off following a challenge with Kai Havertz.

Everton said: “Ben Godfrey underwent successful surgery this morning on the fractured fibula he sustained.

“The defender Godfrey  will now begin rehabilitation at Finch Farm under the care of the club’s medical team and is expected to be out for around three months.”

Everton are also without striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin for six weeks.

The striker suffered an injury setback on the eve of the new Premier League season.

Boss Frank Lampard said: “Losing a player of Dom’s quality is obviously going to have an impact.

“I think we’re probably looking around six weeks for the injury.”

To soften the blow, the Toffees have started to get busy in the transfer market.

The Merseyside club are closing in on promising Lille midfielder Amadou Onana.

Wolves defender and England international Conor Coady has also joined the club to help plug the gaps.

Coady told evertontv: “It’s incredible to join Everton.

“As soon as I heard the interest, from the manager but also the Football Club itself, I really wanted to be part of it straight away. I’m over the moon to join.

“I’ve grown up around the city, I know the Football Club, how big this club is and what it means to the supporters.

“I’m someone who was desperate to come here, to play for this club. I’ve got family and friends who are massive Evertonians.

“I’m here to give absolutely everything I’ve got for this football club.

“It’s important I work as hard as I can to help my teammates, help the Club move forward and make people proud.”
