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."

Arsène Wenger is sweating on the fitness of Jack Wilshere after Mohamed Elneny was ruled out for at least three weeks.

The Egypt international rolled his ankle during Sundays 4-1 over West Ham and he will miss the Europa League tie against Atlético Madrid. Wilshere hasn't played since picking an ankle injury in Moscow 10 days ago, but is poised for a return in the semi-final first-leg: "Jack had a training session today [Sunday] and he looked positive, so he has a good chance to be available for Thursday." Wenger will check on several members of his squad ahead of the contest, but two players who will definitely miss out are Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang [cup-tied] and Henrikh Mkhitaryan who has failed to recover from a knee ligament injury. Petr Cech [hip] and Sead Kolasinac [ankle] will be assessed while serial sneezer, Mesut Ozil, who missed Sunday due to illness [6th absence in 15 months] faces a test: "We will have to see how he recovers."

Swansea still have it all to do and Carlos Carvalhal will be hoping for some positive news from the treatment room after Frederico Fernandez was forced off against Manchester City on Sunday.

The Swans sit just four-points above the drop zone with four games remaining and will be counting on their influential skipper for the run-in: "We don't know in this moment [exactly how severe the injury is], but I have expectations that it is not too serious," said Carvalhal on Saturday. These sentiments were backed by the player 24 hours later following an update via the club’s website: "I am fine. I got hit painfully on the knee and I had to come off," Fernandez said. "It doesn’t look so bad. Hopefully it will mean a couple of days recovery and I will be ready for next weekend. I need to discuss it with the doctor. It seems to be in the tendons, but I hope I will be available against Chelsea." Kyle Bartley is likely to deputise should he fail to recover.

Newcastle's four-match winning streak came to an end with a 1-0 defeat at Everton on Monday.

In all, it was a disappointing trip to Goodison Park for Newcastle. Rafa Benitez made one change to his side from the 2-1 win over Arsenal, as Islam Slimani made his first start since arriving on loan from Leicester City. Ayoze Perez nearly broke the deadlock in a first-half void of clear-cut chances when he tested Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the 31st minute. Perez had another opportunity just after the restart, but the Spaniard dragged wide with his left foot. Just a matter of seconds later, Everton took the lead when Theo Walcott collected a cross and smashed home from close-range. Matt Ritchie went close from a free-kick on 77 minutes as the visitors went for it late, but the Magpies weren't able to even the score. The defeat means Newcastle remain 10th on 41 points with four matches remaining.

Theo Walcott scored the lone goal as Everton beat Newcastle 1-0 at Goodison Park on Monday.

Sam Allardyce's side were unchanged from their draw with Swansea City at the weekend and found chances hard to come by in the first-half of the mid-table encounter. However, the Everton went on the offensive after the break and broke the deadlock in the 51st minute. Yannick Bolasie's deep cross from the right wing found Walcott, who controlled with a cushioned touch before smashing into the roof of the net from 10 yards out. The goal was Walcott's third since joining Everton in January from Arsenal. Newcastle pressed for an equalizer and created a few chances late in the match, but Everton held on to earn their first win in four match matches. The victory bring Everton up to eighth in the table, one point above Leicester City and four points above tenth-placed Newcastle.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez said that the club will explore a way to keep Kenedy at the club beyond this season.

The Brazilian international is pushing for a World Cup spot this summer after impressing for Newcastle since arriving on loan from Chelsea in the winter transfer window. The versatile winger has recorded two goals and two assists in recent months, catching the eye of Benitez, who said he would even take Kenedy back on loan if they couldn't work out a deal with Chelsea: "If you want to win games and he's doing well you have to play him. If he's doing even better, than fine, fair enough. You can't change that. It will be more difficult for us, for sure, but he's so happy he'll be keen to stay."

Pep Guardiola believes John Stones will be ready for the World Cup as he works his way back to full fitness.

An abductor injury has kept the City defender sidelined for almost three weeks, but Stones is on the mend and should play a part during the run-in. "It is getting better," said Guardiola. "Hopefully he can play the last games." When asked if he thought the 23-year-old would be ready for the World Cup finals in Russia, the Spaniard replied: "I think he will be fine, yes." Stones has had a disappointing 2018 with just three Premier League starts having begun the season well. The return of captain Vincent Kompany and the excellent form of Nicolás Otamendi has limited him to less than 12 hours of football – across all domestic competitions – since January. He did however, feature in England’s two recent friendly internationals against Netherlands and Italy. Despite an assured performance in Amsterdam, Stones endured a mixed evening at Wembley four days later, gifting Ciro Immobile an early chance and is still prone to mistakes.

There are growing concerns for Arsenal who head into Thursday night’s Europa League semi-final with a mounting injury list.

Arsène Wenger was hoping to use this weekend as a dress rehearsal for the Atletico Madrid tie, but instead, took on London-rivals West Ham United with five players missing, although all are said to be minor. Jack Wilshere failed to recover from the ankle injury he picked up in Moscow 10 days ago while Petr Cech [hip], Mesut Ozil [illness] and Sead Kolasinac [ankle] become the latest players to enter the Arsenal treatment room. The first-leg will come too soon for Henrikh Mkhitaryan [knee ligament] but of greater concern is the loss of Mohamed Elneny who was stretchered off in the second half of today's 4-1 win. "It’s an ankle problem that is very painful," said Wenger. "Overall I believe that we have to wait until the X-ray to know a little more about it. But Thursday will be too soon for him."
