Everton: Dinnery claims Holgate could be out until after the international break

According to injury specialist Ben Dinnery, Everton defender Mason Holgate could now be out until after the international break as he is being sent for a scan after picking up a recent injury. 

The Toffees have struggled with injuries so far this season, with the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Yerry Mina, Ben Godfrey, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Andros Townsend all missing significant game time already this season, and it looks like they have added one more to the list.

The young defender has played in all four of Everton’s games this season, but was forced off due to a knee injury in their recent draw with Brentford and it is now believed he will undergo a scan to find out the extent of the problem.

As a result, Dinnery recently claimed the 25-year-old could face up to a few weeks out and potentially only return to action after the international break which finishes on 27th September.

Dinnery told the Premier FPL Injuries show: “We think that Mason Holgate will be out for at least 2-3 weeks. It could be after the international break, but he will be sent for a scan to determine the extent of that problem.”

TIF Thoughts on Holgate’s injury…

Everton currently find themselves in the bottom three, and seeing as they already have their starting striker, winger, midfielder and defenders out due to injuries – before adding Holgate to that list – things are likely to get even worse now.

As the Toffees are now left with just James Tarkowski, Conor Coady and Michael Keane as centre-back options, they are left thin and due to face an exciting Leeds United side who recently put three goals past Chelsea in their previous home game.

There is still time left in the window to bring someone in, and considering the injuries that are adding up in defence, they should seriously consider making a move in the transfer market. Otherwise, they could find themselves struggling by the time the World Cup rolls around.

Will Everton miss Holgate?
