Early reports suggesting new Everton signing Gerard Deulofeu will miss the start of the new season look to be a little wide of the mark after the pacey winger suffered a hamstring problem last weekend.
Deulofeu was replaced at half-time during the loss to Arsenal in the Asia Trophy with sections of the media claiming the 21 year-old had suffered a grade two tear which would mean around 4-6 weeks on the sidelines. However the Liverpool ECHO reveal that his withdrawal was more of a precaution and Deulofeu still has a chance of making the PL opener against Watford. The latter appears to be a more accurate assessment of the current situation as extensive fibre damage would have left the winger in severe pain / discomfort - something which wasn’t overtly obvious from the live match coverage. Everton are also sweating on a number of other players for GW1 with Leighton Baines, Darron Gibson, Bryan Oviedo and Mo Besic all currently out because of injury. Jul 23 - 11:56 AM
