Seamus Coleman is likely to miss the rest 2017 after sustaining a double leg fracture during Friday night’s World Cup qualifier against Wales in Dublin.

The Everton wing-back was on the receiving end of a horrific Neil Taylor challenge which left Coleman sprawled on the Aviva Stadium turf with Shane Long comforting his international teammate before being stretchered off. Coleman will have surgery, most likely a plate and screw method, to fix the fracture. Typically, recovery from this type of injury will physically take around 9 months, although the timeline can be affected by setbacks or complications during rehab. However, psychologically it may take a little longer for Coleman to return to the peak of his game. Following a similar injury in 2010, Aaron Ramsey admitted he didn’t feel fully confident and back to his best until three years later. We wish Coleman all the very best and a speedy recovery.

Everton wing-back and Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman has undergone surgery after suffering a horrific injury in his country's World Cup Qualifier on Friday night.

Coleman sustained the double leg fracture after a reckless challenge by Aston Villa's Neil Taylor in the 0-0 draw in Dublin. He went through surgery on Saturday morning to have screws inserted into his right leg to help the healing process. The extent of the injury means that the Irish skipper may not play again until 2018, and rules out any chance of a summer move which had been rumoured owing to his consistency and brilliance this season for club and country alike. Instead, the 28 year-old will go through months of rehabilitation to get back on the pitch and continue his sparkling career.

Everton suffered a major blow on Friday night with Seamus Coleman suffering a broken leg while on international duty.

The right-back was taken on a stretcher in the 68th minute of the Republic of Ireland's 0-0 draw against Wales on Friday in an international friendly and was taken to the hospital. Now Coleman faces a lengthy rehabilitation period after put together a good season for the Toffees, including four goals and three assists. Said Ireland manager Martin O'Neill: "It's a bad break. Seamus is a fantastic player and character - it's a major blow for the lad, for his club and for us. Apparently it wasn't the best challenge in the world - I haven't seen it back - but naturally disappointed. He's gone to hospital and I think it's broken. I saw Seamus' reaction - he was holding his leg up and it didn't look good."

The Republic of Ireland squad received an unexpected boost in the wake of what Martin O’Neill described as his worst injury crisis in three years.

Already without the suspended Robbie Brady for the Group D qualifier against Wales, O’Neill’s squad has been decimated by injury after Wes Hoolahan, Harry Arter, Shane Duffy were confirmed absentees along with Newcastle trio Ciaran Clark, Rob Elliot and Daryl Murphy. However, after all but ruling James McCarthy out earlier this week, the Everton midfielder could make a surprise appearance at the Aviva Stadium. "He is improving very quickly," O’Neill said during Thursday afternoons press conference. "He's done some work. He's feeling much better so we'll assess it." Ireland currently top the group and another victory, against the unbeaten Welsh, would see them move seven-points ahead of their rivals at the midway point of this qualification campaign.

Romelu Lukaku didn't do himself any favors with Everton fans with last week's comments over his concerns about winning trophies on Merseyside.

It looks increasingly likely by the week that Lukaku will leave the club this summer despite weeks of contract talks, which left his agent Mino Raiola to say the deal was "99.9 percent done." Now Lukaku seems to have gotten cold feet over signing a new deal with Chelsea among the clubs being linked with a move for the Premier League's top scorer, who has questioned Everton's transfer policy this year. "No disrespect, but you want to remembered as well. You cannot only be remembered by scoring goals, you want to be remembered by winning trophies," Lukaku said. "...I don't know what the board's plan is, but there were some players I knew the club could have got and they didn't, and they're playing in this league. I am not saying names, but they are doing well. It is a little bit frustrating but, at the end of the day, we have fantastic players. We cannot look at the others, we can only look at ourselves."

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.

After a controversial week, Romelu Lukaku scored his way back into the hearts of Everton fans with a brace on Saturday afternoon.

Earlier this week news broke that Lukaku is refusing to sign a contract extension at the club after saying he wants to play for a club that will win trophies. But at the rate he is going, Lukaku could very well take home the Golden Boot after taking the lead with his 20th and 21st Premier League goal of the season: both coming in stoppage time in the second half. Lukaku also set up a late goal from Enner Valencia, who returned the favor by assisting on Lukaku's first goal just minutes later. Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the first goal of the game, after getting a rare start in midfield since his return from injury. The 4-0 win against Hull is the seventh straight home win for the Toffees.

Good news for Everton as it looks like the club won't have to deal with another injury absence for Leighton Baines.

The Everton penalty and free-kick specialist left the club's win against West Brom last weekend at half-time due to a back complaint. However, manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that Baines has returned to training and is in contention to face Hull City this weekend. Said Koeman: "Leighton trained this morning. Normally he would be available for the weekend. We have still have the same players out." Baines' return will make for an interesting decision along the back-line for Koeman, who brought Phil Jagielka back into the lineup last weekend at Ramiro Funes Mori's expense.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that the club is set to open talks with Ross Barkley over a new deal.

The first-year Everton boss said Barkley is one of a number of players who will engage in talks over a new contract with his current deal set to expire at the end of next season. The 23-year-old has rediscovered his form of late with five goals this season after falling out of the first team and has sparked interest from Tottenham in recent weeks: "Yeah there are talks planned," Koeman said. "I don't think talks have started yet. Those players who finished the contract after one year, he's one of them and we will do everything to keep Ross and sign a new contract."

Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that veteran defender Leighton Baines sustained a back injury on Saturday.

The left-back, who also takes free-kicks and penalties, did not play the requisite minutes to earn clean sheet points in the club's 3-0 win against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday after being subbed off at half-time due to a stiff back. Ramiro Funes Mori came on to replace Baines with Phil Jagielka in the starting lineup for the first time in months. Said Koeman: "Leighton had a problem with his back, he couldn't move anymore, that was the reason we had to change Leighton."

Everton will have to cope without midfielder James McCarthy for the next few weeks due to a hamstring injury.

Manager Ronald Koeman confirmed the injury kept McCarthy out of the club's 3-0 win against West Brom on Saturday. The injury-prone midfielder has already missed 11 league games due to injury, but it may clear up a crowded midfield selection crisis for Koeman. Said the manager: "James, again, he has some problems on his hamstring. It happened at the beginning of last week, that is really painful for himself but also for me because I like him and we like to progress with, continue with James. It is not a big hamstring, maybe he will be out for one or two weeks, but I am really disappointed about that."

Everton bounced back from its 3-2 loss to Spurs last week, crushing West Brom in a 3-0 victory at Goodison Park.

It took 39 minutes before the Toffees could break through against a notoriously stingy West Brom defense, but Kevin Mirallas' solo effort was all they need to take a lead they would never relinquish. Minutes later, just on the doorstep of half-time, Romelu Lukaku created a chance for Morgan Schneiderlin's first goal in Everton blue to double the lead before the half. Then it was Lukaku who sealed the win in the 82nd minute, sending home a pass from Ross Barkley for his 19th goal of he Premier League season, putting him joint-top with Harry Kane for the lead. The only downside to the day was an injury to Leighton Baines, who had to leave at half-time with a knock.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin is fully fit for the weekend.

The 19-year-old has made four appearances for the Toffees this season since arriving in a summer transfer. But Calvert-Lewis was subbed off after just 12 minutes in his first Premier League start—against Southampton at the beginning of January—after suffering an ankle injury and ligament damage. After missing the last two months, Calvert-Lewin has been passed fit for the weekend match against West Brom while midfielder Muhamed Besic is also nearing a return from injury: "Dominic is now fit and can be part of the team for the weekend," Koeman said. "Mo Besic is doing well. He’s had tests as part of his fitness and he is part of every training session but needs to take more steps. He needs to play a part of Under-23 games. We don’t know if he will be really fit to play in the first-team this season."
Mar 9 - 2:57 PM

Romelu Lukaku scored his 18th goal of the season but Everton found themselves playing catch up with Tottenham all afternoon, eventually coming up short in a 3-2 loss.

For the first 80 minutes of the match, Tottenham were in control and built a 2-0 lead heading into the final stages. But, Everton didn't completely pack it in as they were able to pull one back in the 81st minute. Kevin Mirallas fed Lukaku and the Belgian used his strength and pace to turn and fire past the fingertips of Hugo Lloris. Even when Spurs canceled that goal out as the game went into stoppage time, Everton caught the opposition napping as Ross Barkley swung a cross into the area and Enner Valencia was in the right spot to tap in. Still, the comeback came too little, too late. The Toffees return home next weekend to host West Brom in one of only four league matches on tap.

Everton star forward Romelu Lukaku shook off any worries over his fitness with a goal in a 2-0 win against Sunderland.

The former Chelsea striker returned to the top of the Premier League in goals with his 17th of the season to put him level with Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez. Idrissa Gueye opened the scoring in the 40th minute with his first Premier League goal for the Toffees, blasting a low pass from Seamus Coleman into the back of the net. Then, in the 80th, Lukaku doubled Everton's lead with a powerful effort, fighting off former Everton teammate Bryan Oviedo on a breakaway and finishing past Jordan Pickford for the goal, to put him level on 60 goals with Everton legend Duncan Ferguson for the club record and his eighth in the last five home matches. Everton now sit just four points back of Manchester United after extending its league unbeaten streak to nine.
