Everton winger Yannick Bolasie's debut season on Merseyside seems to have come to a close following an ACL injury.
Scans confirmed the £30million summer signing from Crystal Palace will need surgery to repair ligaments in his right knee after leaving the club's 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday in the 68th minute. Not only does the operation rule him out for the rest of the season, but it also keeps him from representing DR Congo at the African Cup of Nations in January. Bolasie has played in every Premier League match since making the move to Goodison Park, recording a goal and four assists. Now, manager Ronald Koeman will have to choose between Gerard Deulofeu, Enner Valencia and Tom Cleverley to replace the playmaker on the wing. Dec 6 - 4:15 AM

Yannick Bolasie could miss the Africa Cup of Nations next month after he suffered what appeared to be a serious looking knee injury against Manchester United.

The former Crystal Palace winger overstretched for a ball midway through the second half, and following lengthy treatment on the touchline, Bolasie lasted another four minutes before dropping to the Goodison turf once again. Following an impressive start to his Everton career, Bolasie has struggled in recent games, a dip in form which has coincided with the Toffees’ downturn. Today’s 1-1 draw ensures Ronald Koeman’s men have just one win from their last 9 Premier League encounters, although they did take a point from the Etihad. The absence of Bolasie, could open the door for West Ham loanee Enner Valencia who has been restricted to nothing more than a bit part role since his arrival in July.

Everton's autumn slide only continued following a 2-1 loss to Burnley that extends the club's Premier League winless streak to four games.

Heading into Gameweek 6, the Toffees sat in second place behind Manchester City, until a 1-0 loss to Bournemouth preceded two draws and a loss at the Turf Moor on Saturday to drop the club into sixth place. Everton did well to respond to a first-half deficit after Sam Vokes sent the Clarets ahead in the 39th minute after Maarten Stekelenburg couldn't control a save that fell right to Vokes. But Yannick Bolasie answered in the second half with his first Premier League goal for the Toffees after taking the ball off Romelu Lukaku's feet and firing it past Tom Heaton before Scott Arfield's late winner broke Everton's heart.

"Sky Sports" report Everton has seen its club-record bid for Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie accepted this week.

Reports claim the bid will surpass the previous club record of £28 million paid to Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku two years ago with add-ons taking the fee near £30 million for Bolasie. With Bolasie, Andros Townsend, Wilfried Zaha, Bakary Sako and Connor Wickham, Palace has toyed with the idea of selling Bolasie in order to fund a £30 million-plus move for Liverpool forward Christian Benteke this summer after seeing a £25 million bid shot down last month. But after selling John Stones for upwards of £40 million, Everton manager Ronald Koeman now has money to spend prior to the season opener against Spurs this weekend.

Reports in England confirm Everton is trying to conduct a bit of last-minute shopping before its opener against Tottenham this weekend.

Just this week the Toffees have seen a £10million bid for Swansea City defender Ashley Williams rejected, an £18million bid for Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie turned down and have just submitted an £18million bid for Sunderland defender Lamine Kone as they look to replace defender John Stones, who is being linked with a last-minute move to Manchester City. Ronald Koeman has only signed Maarten Stekelenburg and Idrissa Gueye this summer and is expected to return with improved bids for Bolasie and Williams this summer.

Alan Pardew will make a late decision on Yannick Bolasie who is struggling due to sickness: "We’re waiting on him." Meanwhile, the Eagles boss also confirms Mile Jedinak "has a slight knock."

If one, or both players miss out against Stoke then Palace do have options, although Chung-Yong Lee is unlikely to be considered after he was fined this week following his comments about Pardew in the South Korean Press. Bakary Sako and Joe Ledley are poised to come in. Wilfried Zaha "still has a bit of a problem" which means he’ll miss the remaining league games "but he should be fine by the (FA Cup) final" in a little over two weeks. "He is a naturally fit guy. He did the injury before the semi-final. We monitored him afterwards and saw there was a slight tear." Sullay Kaikai was brilliant during his loan spell at Shrewsbury and young midfielder will be play a part during the run-in: "I'm not sure I'll involve him this weekend, but I will involve him at Southampton. He's earned that."

Crystal Palace will be relieved have all of its usual starters available to face Watford in the FA Cup semifinals on Sunday.

Manager Alan Pardew confirmed that winger Yannick Bolasie and defenders Scott Dann and Joel Ward will all be in contention to start against Watford after missing Wednesday's loss to Manchester United due to various knocks sustained last weekend against Arsenal. The squad was so depleted against the Red Devils that Pardew made seven changes to the starting lineup from the Arsenal draw. But the move were suited to getting the club back to full strength before what is undoubtedly the biggest game of the season for the club at Wembley.

Crystal Palace will be without four of its weekend starters for Wednesday's Premier League fixture against Manchester United.

Manager Alan Pardew revealed that winger Yannick Bolasie, who scored the equalizing goal against Arsenal for a critical point this weekend, will miss the run-in due to a knock while Joe Ledley will follow suit after starting this weekend in place of Wilfried Zaha. The Palace manager also confirmed that Joel Ward and Scott Dann will be absent for tomorrow's match due to injuries sustained over the weekend in the hopes of being available to face Watford in the FA Cup semfinals this weekend. Jordon Mutch and Lee Chung-Yong could be in for a recall to the starting XI while the club could also opt for two strikers in Connor Wickham and Emmanuel Adebayor.

Crystal Palace clawed back from a 1-0 away deficit against a formidable Arsenal attack for a 1-1 draw at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

The Eagles need just eight points from five remaining matches to clinch their survival after taking such a critical point from Arsenal. The Palace defense held strong despite 21 shots from the Gunners. But the one moment of weakness came when a limping Scott Dann failed to clear the ball in stoppage time of the first half before Alexis Sanchez dispatched a header into the back of the net for a 1-0 lead. But the home side couldn't put the game away before Yannick Bolasie surprised Petr Cech with a daisy-cutter from outside of the box after Emmanuel Adebayor fed the winger off a counter-attack to seal the draw.

Crystal Palace was handed a major boost with the return of winger Yannick Bolasie from injury on Sunday in the FA Cup against Spurs.

Bolasie came on as a second-half substitute for Emmanuel Adebayor in the 76th minute after missing close to the last two months with a hip injury. Crystal Palace has not won a single Premier League match in the nine matches since Bolasie was sidelined and the Eagles have only scored four goals in that span after going goalless in the first five matches. Now that Bolasie is back into the mix, expect Alan Pardew to throw him straight back into the starting lineup to give the struggling attack a much-needed upgrade, making him a good fantasy option in any format.
Feb 21 - 4:20 PM

Alan Pardew confirmed that this weekend's match will come too soo for Yannick Bolasie and Bakary Sako, but the duo is in line to return to training next week.

Bolasie has missed the past six weeks with a leg injury and the Crystal Palace attack has struggled mightily in his absence with only three goals and no wins since Boxing Day. Upon his return, Bolasie could be a shrewd fantasy pickup considering his stellar second-half to last season. Sako is set to join him in full training next week as he recovers from a hamstring injury that has kept him out for a month. The former Wolves forward aggravated the injury upon his initial return after missing a month and has only made one appearance in the past two months.
Feb 11 - 11:12 AM

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew made two brief statements concerning the winter transfer window for the Eagles: Search for a forward and no selling key players.

Said Pardew: "One of the reasons we gave them the contracts was to say: 'We want to keep your heart and your mind here'"...The fact of it is that we are pretty confident that we will keep all of our best players here. One or two players who are not playing may move on if the bid is right, for sure." Yannick Bolasie is one of those players who recently signed a new contract after lots of transfer interest this summer. Pardew, who is in talks over a new deal himself, also said the club won't be looking to sign any defenders or midfielders, with just a forward in mind following all the club's injuries up front and the departure of Patrick Bamford.

Alan Pardew confirmed Crystal Palace have suffered a double injury blow with the news that Connor Wickham and Yannick Bolasie are expected to miss the next month at least.

A hamstring strain forced Wickham off during the recent win over Stoke while Bolasie picked up a hip injury at the Britannia. "They’re not going to play on Monday [against Swansea]," Pardew said. "They look as though they’ll both be out for about four weeks. "We’re pretty thin at the moment but that’s part of the game." Fraizer Campbell led the attack against Bournemouth while Jordon Mutch disappointed after starting his first Premier League game since August.

Palace suffer a second successive defeat and second successive blank in front of goal, raising questions about their cutting edge…

Plenty went right for Palace in the summer, but they didn’t add the striker they wanted. Likewise, there has been plenty to be pleased about with their start to the season. But two defeats without scoring hints that the lack of a finisher could restrict their upward progress. Yanick Bolasie started the match in the central striking role – the fifth player to be given the role this season. But was replaced by Frazier Campell (the sixth) in a half-time reshuffle. Bakery Sako, Jason Puncheon, Wilfried Zaha and Johan Cabaye have all performed well so far, without really delivering enough end product. The same could be said for Palace as a whole. Injured defenders Joel Ward and Scott Dann remain their 2nd and 3rd best performers according to PL.com and until Conor Wickham comes back – and starts scoring – that is likely to remain the case.

Palace boss Alan Pardew was pragmatic in defeat against the early Champions-elect…

The manner of Palace’s defeat was harsh – a last minute goal from a substitute moments after your sub has missed a sitter is always difficult to take. But Pardew acknowledged that Palace were second best in the second half. Bakary Sako wasn’t able to reproduce last week’s heroics but Wilfried Zaha and Yanick Bolasie were a constant threat. Bolasie – starting in a central striking role that will delight FL managers who the midfielder if he stays there – still hasn’t claimed his first home goal. But it is just a matter of time. Palace again looked solid defensively and inventive going forward. If Bolasie – or someone - can find their shooting boots, the Eagles look well capable of a Top 8 finish.
