Everton eked out a narrow 1-0 win over Newcastle on Monday but the three-points came at a cost after Morgan Schneiderlin was forced off early in the second half.
The Toffees midfielder sustained a thigh injury in an accidental collision with United winger Matt Ritchie during the build-up to what proved to be the watch winner by Theo Walcott on 51 minutes. However, Schneiderlin was quick to allay growing concerns of a lengthy lay-off when he posted an update via Twitter: ‘Good to get the three points tonight. Disappointed to have to come off but I couldn’t run off a bad dead leg from the first half. Nothing too serious so I should be back for Saturday!’ And manager Sam Allardyce is hoping Schneiderlin will recover in time to face Huddersfield Town after admitting Everton lost some of their "rhythm and fluency" in the middle of the park when he came off. "He had a massive influence for us today. That loss caused us to lose some of our fluency and possession in midfield." Apr 24 - 4:20 PM

David Unsworth moved quickly to provide an update on Morgan Schneiderlin after the midfielder was replaced at half-time versus Crystal Palace.

The caretaker boss was forced to defend Schneiderlin prior to the trip to Selhurst Park following growing media speculation which questioned his commitment, and that of teammate Kevin Mirallas, who were both omitted from the squad which faced Watford in game week 11. "There is no story. I know they’re both fully committed. If they’re not in the team or squad, would they be disappointed? Absolutely - and you would want that. There’s nothing in it, honestly. I can assure all the Everton fans that both players are fully committed to this great Club." However, following a lacklustre forty-five minutes against the leagues bottom side, Schneiderlin failed to emerge for the second half, although Unsworth insists his withdrawal was injury-related. "We were forced to bring on Tom Davies. Morgan had an injection before the game on his toe and was struggling."

Everton manager Ronald Koeman said the club hopes to have a trio of midfielders back from injury before the end of the season.

Morgan Schneiderlin looks like the closest to returning from a thigh injury but will miss the weekend match with Swansea City, another missed outing in an injury-plagued 2017. "Morgan is improving," Koeman said in his pre-match press conference. "But he will not be fit for the weekend. But I believe he can be fit for next Friday [against Watford]." But Muhamed Besic looks could be set for a return in the near future after comingng through a series of U23 matches as he eyes his first appearance of the year. And James McCarthy is expected to return before the end of the season with speculation that he will leave in the summer after falling down the depth chart under Koeman.

Everton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is set to return from a brief injury stint for the club's match with Leicester City.

The former Manchester United midfielder has missed the last two matches after suffering a calf injury three weeks ago against Hull City. However, Schneiderlin could face a fight to break back into the side with a crowded midfielder featuring Gareth Barry, Idrissa Gueye, Tom Davies and Ross Barkley among the recent starters. "I have good hope that he will be available. He trained today and yesterday, and if there is no problem tomorrow he can be fit for the weekend."

Everton will have to do without two starting midfielders in James McCarthy and Morgan Scheniderlin for Saturday's derby.

The midfielders are part of a growing injury list that added defenders Seamus Coleman and Raimro Funes Mori during the international break with season-ending injuries. But Koeman said the club is hopeful to have Schneiderlin back for the following weekend against Leicester City, meaning he is set to miss out against Liverpool on Saturday and also against former club Manchester United. "Morgan is getting better now," Koeman said. "He is still not available for the weekend and I don’t think he will be available for the game against Manchester United on Tuesday, but we have good hope that he will be available for the Leicester game."

Ronald Koeman fears Morgan Schneiderlin could be sidelined for "several weeks" after the January signing from Manchester United limped off during the first half of Saturdays win over Hull City.

The France international will have a scan on his calf to determine the extent of his injury, but Koeman admits he is concerned: "I’m a little bit worried he might be out for several weeks but we need to wait." Fortunately, the Toffees are well covered in midfield and have a wealth of options depending on how the Dutchman prefers to set his side. During the early part of the campaign, Everton favoured a 4-2-3-1 with Gareth Barry and Idrissa Gueye anchoring in the double pivot. However, in recent times a 4-3-3 or 4-5-1 has been the preferred formation with James McCarthy, Tom Davies and Schneiderlin playing in behind Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley plus one other from Lookman, Valencia or Mirallas.

Everton is expected to hand midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin his club debut on Sunday against Manchester City.

The midfielder arrived on Thursday in a £20million move from Manchester United in good fitness, and has been named in the team to face Manchester City by manager Ronald Koeman. However, Koeman said he will wait to see if Schneiderlin is ready to start right away, along with weighing up new signing Ademola Lookman's debut. "Morgan’s fitness is okay. He’s not had a lot of game-time but to improve that you need to play and you need minutes. We will make a decision tomorrow, but he’ll be involved in the squad on Sunday. Ademola also has a chance to be involved."

Everton manager Ronald Koeman is wasting no time in digging into the club's transfer kitty with a move for Morgan Schneiderlin.

Schneiderlin only appeared in three Premier League matches this season under new Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and now joins the Toffees for a £20 million fee that could rise to £24 million with incentives. The 27-year-old signs a four-and-a-half-year contract through the summer of 2021. Said Schneiderlin: "Everton is a big club in the history of English football. I’ve always loved the atmosphere in the stadium. I’ve always liked playing here. I can’t wait to play and to represent this great Club. There is a manager in place here that I know, I know he can get the best out of me, I know his style and how he likes to play football."

Manchester United have agreed a fee with Everton for the transfer of French international Morgan Schneiderlin.

The 27 year old, who arrived at Old Trafford for £25 million in July 2015 to Louis Van Gaal from Southampton will depart for an initial fee of £22 million. It is being reported by some outlets that the deal could rise as high as £24 million if add-ons are triggered. Schneiderlin was consistently a member of the first team in his first season at the club, earning himself 25 starts in the PL. This season, his league appearances have dwindled to just three as a substitute. Schneiderlin will link up with Ronald Koeman at Everton, for whom he excelled before his move to the north.

It seems to be almost certain that Morgan Schneiderlin will leave Manchester United in the January transfer window.

On Monday it was reported that the Red Devils rejected a £19 million bid from Everton after previously turning down a million less from Tony Pulis' West Brom. The Toffees are keen to replace Idrissa Gueye as he leaves for AFCON duty for the next few weeks with Senegal. Both interested clubs will have to increase their bids if they are to acquire the French international, with United believed to be trying to recoup the majority of the £24 million they paid Southampton in July 2015 in spite of Schneiderlin's exclusion from Mourinho's United set up.

Lassana Diarra has been ruled out of Euro 2016 because of a knee injury earning Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin a reprieve.

Schneiderlin was named in Didier Deschamps pre-tournament squad but failed to make the cut: "It's time for me to leave the camp and to be back home with my family and friends," revealed the 26-year-old following the news of his omission. However, the French Federation confirmed on Tuesday that his international teammate Diarra was withdrawn from group after expressing concerns about his ‘inability to compete [in the Euros] to the best of his ability’ and a decision was taken to replace the Olympic Marseille player of the year nominee. Diarra has been struggling with an ongoing knee problem which restricted his involvement to just 45 minutes in the recent friendly win over Cameroon. The hosts kick off the 2016 European Championship in the opener against Romania on June 10.

Louis Van Gaal can at least smile about the fact that one of his potential ten absentees will be available for the trip to the South Coast as Morgan Schneiderlin has recovered from his hip injury.

The France international's absence would have meant that neither of he nor Bastian Schweinsteiger would have been available to partner Michael Carrick in Week 16. As it turns out, United will still be without the German midfielder plus Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Wayne Rooney and Ander Herrera. The team names might not lead you to believe that this will be an interesting match but the injuries might make it very interesting.

Morgan Schneiderlin will miss Tuesday nights’ UEFA Champions League game in Wolfsburg through injury but Paddy McNair has travelled with the group to Germany.

Schneiderlin limped off moments before half-time on Saturday at Old Trafford due to a hip problem and despite the player confirming he was OK post-match, Louis van Gaal revealed the former Saint was a doubt for the crucial midweek tie. "He is a little bit stiff in the hip, so we have to wait and see as always on that. I hope they can play on Tuesday but it is a very short [turnaround] so it is a very big question mark." Michael Carrick is expected to partner Bastian Schweinsteiger in front of the back four. United will also be without the services of Wayne Rooney and Marcos Rojo but McNair has been included in the squad. The defender was replaced during the break against West Ham after taking a knock to the ankle.

Morgan Schneiderlin missed the mid-week trip to Moscow with illness but will be available again for the Week 12 match with West Brom.

The method behind Van Gaal's holding midfield choices has been mysterious. Logic would dictate that United's best pairing would be Schneiderlin paired with whichever of Carrick or Schweinsteiger is fittest and in the best form. Instead, it appears that Van Gaal just chooses two names from a hat to start in the holding roles assuming all three are healthy. You'd expect that Schneiderlin will start this weekend now that he's healthy but it isn't something that you should be counting on as a 100% certainty.

Southampton are moving closer to a move for Jordy Clasie that has been widely rumored since Morgan Schneiderlin made his intention to leave this summer known.

Ronald Koeman has been linked to the Eredivisie star for a year or more with the knowledge that Morgan Schneiderlin's time at St. Mary's was short. With Schneiderlin now at Manchester United, the inevitable seems like it is coming to pass. The 24-year-old Clasie will join Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum as high profile imports from Holland's first tier. Clasie, like Schneiderlin, is a holding midfielder who is equally adept at covering the back four and igniting the attack with an incisive pass. It might take him a little time to adapt but expect the Saints to continue their recent tradition of playing the transfer market well and backfilling leaving stars with similar talent for less money.
