Eliaquim Mangala is at risk of missing the remainder of the campaign after undergoing knee surgery.
The Manchester City centre-back, who is currently on-loan at Everton, posted an update via his personal Twitter and Instagram account on Wednesday confirming he had been under the knife to repair knee ligament damage. "Operation done. Now, let's get to work, to come back #EverStronger. Why do we fall? So, we can learn to pick ourselves up." Although the specifics of the injury have not been confirmed, it is believed that Mangala suffered a grade three tear to his medial collateral ligament which has a recovery time of around 10-12 weeks. Sam Allardyce handed Ashley Williams a recall in a 4-3-3 at Watford on Saturday, but he may also consider Phil Jagielka to sit alongside Michael Keane once he recovers from a minor niggle. Alternatively, the Toffees have the option of going with three central defenders and using Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines as wing-backs once the pair are fully fit. Mar 1 - 4:47 AM
