SEAMUS COLEMAN will be out of action for three or four weeks after picking up a calf injury playing for Everton in last night’s Capital One Cup semi-final first leg against Manchester City.
The Killybegs man limped off in the final minute of the game at Goodison Park and the Everton manager, Roberto Martinez, expects that it will be the best part of a month before the full-back returns.
Romelu Lukaku’s 19th goal of the season gave Everton a 2-1 win.
Defender Ramiro Funes Mori had given Everton the lead just before half-time, but City drew level through Jesus Navas. Two minutes after Navas’ striker, Lukaku struck the winner.
Lukaku and Tom Cleverley also hobbled out of the action with injuries.
“Seamus Coleman’s injury is the most serious of the three,” said Martinez.
“Cleverley had a calf problem that flared up at half-time.
“Rom [Lukaku] will be assessed. I don’t know if he’ll be available for the weekend, but I don’t expect it to be too serious.”Tags:
