Everton midfielder James McCarthy has suffered another setback in his recovery injury.
The 26-year-old has been battling ongoing knee and hamstring problems for most of the year, injuries which have restricted him to just a single Premier League start. But, following 60 minutes in the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, it was hoped that McCarthy could kick on under new temporary manager David Unsworth. However, the caretaker boss revealed, following the defeat to Leicester, that the Republic of Ireland international had suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury which is likely to mean "a couple of weeks" on the sidelines: "Unfortunately, after the Chelsea game he got a little tweak. We got it scanned on Friday and there’s a little strain there. It’s disappointing because he’s a big player for us." The news will come as a huge blow to Martin O’Neill as the injury is expected to rule him out of next month’s World Cup playoff game against Denmark. Oct 30 - 9:23 AM
