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." Apr 24 - 4:20 PM
