Gylfi Sigurdsson will not feature in the UEFA Nations League game against Belgium after limping off at Stamford Bridge.

Marco Silva was fuming following a nasty challenge by Chelsea midfielder Jorginho which left the Iceland international in agony. "Did you see the tackle?" the Everton boss raged. "I hope we don't lose Sigurdsson for the next matches after that tackle. I think he's not in a condition to play for the national team." The Icelandic Football Federation have now confirmed that Sigurdsson will play no part on Thursday, although they remain hopeful he could still feature against Qatar in seven days - he will have a scan this week to determine the extent of his ankle injury. Meanwhile, Everton resume their Premier League campaign on November 24 when Cardiff visit Goodison Park, and if Sigurdsson fails to recover, then Silva has a number of options to consider. One of those would be to drop Richarlison a little deeper, into the number ten role, with Cenk Tosun returning to lead the line.

Chelsea dominated proceedings at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as expected but Everton emerged from the tie with a creditable point after a 0-0 draw.

Yerry Mina made his full Premier League debut in place of Kurt Zouma, who is ineligible to play his parent club. Everton found themselves under a lot of pressure and struggling to create chances, registering just a single shot on target whilst Jordan Pickford was forced into a collection of saves to deny Alonso, Hazard, and Morata. The most worrying thing to emerge from the game is an apparent groin injury for club-record signing Richarlison. The starlet went off in the closing minutes, having overcome pre-match fitness doubts relating to a different injury. From that point of view, the international break may have arrived at a good time for Everton.

Everton could be without their top scorer for Sunday's matchup against Chelsea with Richarlison still struggling.

The Brazilian did not feature in team training on Thursday after sustaining an injury to his foot in a 3-1 win against Brighton last weekend. After scoring six goals in his first nine Premier League games with Everton, including two last weekend, Richarlison looks to be a popular pick for Gameweek 12, but fantasy managers may want to be sure of a backup in case he can't go against Chelsea on Sunday. Said manager Marco Silva: "He is in doubt for the match. Let's see how he will react after the individual work he did this morning. We know he's important for us as a striker and as a winger. If he's not fit there's good options for other players in his position. It's football. The players waiting for their chance have all my confidence."

Everton defender Kurt Zouma will not be available to face parent club Chelsea due to loan restrictions.

That means Yerry Mina, the summer signing from Barcelona who just returned from injury after missing the first six weeks of the season, looks set to make his first Premier League start against the toughest of opponents. Mina made his Everton debut off the bench last weekend while Zouma has started all played the full 90 minutes in each of the last eight Premier League matches this season.

Everton defender Yerry Mina is expected to make his full Toffees debut against Chelsea this weekend.

The vaunted summer signing from Barcelona is only just returning from injury after missing the first six weeks of the season and made his Everton debut off the bench last weekend. But with starting central defender Kurt Zouma ineligible to face his parent club due to loan restrictions, Mina looks set to make his first Premier League start against the toughest of opponents. Said the 24-year-old: I am really excited about getting the chance to possibly play. I am in great shape, 100 per cent fit and ready to help the team...Against Brighton, when I came on I thought I was going to be a bit nervous, getting used to things. But I felt really calm, it went well, and I didn’t have any nerves at all. And to get the full 90 minutes in the friendly game – that was great as well. Now I just want to kick on from here."

Everton manager Marco Silva confirmed that winger Richarlison played through pain over the weekend.

The upstart Brazilian attacker suffered a foot injury in the first 15 minutes of a 3-1 win over Brighton where he went on to score two goals. However, the knock is not expected to keep Richarlison out for the weekend trip to Chelsea. The winger looks like a steal in fantasy circles as he currently serves as the club's lone striker, but is listed in FPL.com as a midfielder, in a similar vain as Wilfried Zaha and Marko Arnautovic last season. Said Silva: "It shows you his resilience. He played the second half with pain in his feet. Possibly tomorrow it will be worse. Richarlison performed well. It is important not just for him but our strikers when they can score. It was a very good moment for the first goal, the offensive transition. The second goal he has this capacity to press high and put pressure on the centre-backs. His quality was high."

Richarlison showed poise in front of goal as Everton's lone-striker as they beat Brighton 3-1 at Goodison Park.

Last season, the Brazil international netted just five times, but he equalled that tally by scoring the first of the game early on. He finished off a great through-ball by Sigurdsson with his his first touch, hammering the ball beyond Mat Ryan. Lewis Dunk levelled proceedings minutes later by heading in a Solly March cross, but the Toffees retook the lead after the break through Seamus Coleman. Richarlison sealed the victory with 13 minutes of normal time to run, punishing a loose pass at the back by round a defender and the goalkeeper before applying the finish. Brighton's run of clean sheets emphatically ended but a good win for the home side.

Gylfi Sigurdsson continued his personal hot streak but it was in vain as Manchester United beat the Toffees 2-1 at Old Trafford Sunday.

It was a day of midfielders cashing in on penalties as Sigurdsson joined Luka Milivojevic and Paul Pogba in scoring from (or just after) the spot. Sigurdsson seems to have adjusted to Marco Silva's approach and should be considered an elite midfield option going forward.

Everton got two last-minute goals from substitutes Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun for a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

From the 60th minute on, this game looked like Everton's to win after Jordan Pickford kept the game scoreless with a massive penalty save on a shot from Luka Milivojevic. The Toffees took the lead in the 87th minute when Ademola Lookman found Dominic Calvert-Lewin with an inch-perfect cross for the easy header, just five minutes after the duo came off the bench in one last hope for Marco Silva. Then it was Tosun who broke away on a counterattack in the 89th with Palace pressing forward and finished underneath Wayne Hennessey for the three points at Goodison.

Everton may finally be able to show off their impressive depth with Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes passed fit.

The two summer signings from Barcelona have yet to make their Everton debuts due to injury. Meanwhile, James McCarthy has also been passed fit after missing much of the last year due to a serious leg break. "Gomes is working hard and he is completely fit," Marco Silva said. "Mina is the same situation and James, too. As we know the injury with James is a little bit different – it was a bad injury he had. He is working hard, too. If I take the decision, they are in good condition [to play]. Gana is getting better and we have more time to decide if he is in condition to play or not."

Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye helped Senegal into a commanding first-half lead over Sudan on Saturday before limping off just before the break.

The 29-year-old, who was recently singled out by club manager Marco Silva following a string of impressive performances, has started seven of the Toffees eight Premier League matches this season, only missing out in game week four because of a knee injury. "He is really important for us because our other midfielders do not have the same profile and we need Gana at a good level to help us in those moments, in our reaction and in our defensive and offensive transition," the Everton boss said prior to the win at Leicester. The form of Gueye has restricted Morgan Schneiderlin to nothing more than a bit part role in recent weeks and Silva will be hoping for a positive injury update after he appeared to take a heavy knock on his ankle following a robust Sudanese challenge in the 44th minute.

All signs point to Gylfi Sigurdsson having a massive comeback year after last year's disappointing debut season with Everton.

Last season, after making a £40 million move from Swansea City, he scored four goals and recorded only four assists, his lowest combined total since his Tottenham days. Siggy has responded well to new manager Marco Silva's system, already matching last year's goal total with four goals in his last four games and back-to-back three-bonus-point performances entering the international break. Even more convincing is that the Icelandic international leads the league in chances created and his second behind David Silva in key passes per game. Given Everton's recent form and upcoming schedule, Siggy looks like a must-have midfielder in FPL.com.
Oct 13 - 6:49 PM

Everton entered the international break on a high note following a 2-1 away win over 10-man Leicester City.

The Brazilian international got the Toffees off to a quick start with the opening goal in the seventh minute of the match when he waited at the back post for a deft pass from his countryman Bernard. The goal is Richarlison's fourth of the season and first since returning from a three-match suspension. After conceding the tying goal in the 40th minute, Everton went a man up on Leicester when Richarlison drew a foul that led to Wes Morgan's second yellow card. Within 15 minutes, Everton had their lead when Gylfi Sigurdsson danced around defenders with ease before ripping a 30-yard screamer past Kasper Schmeichel and into the top corner for the victory.

A two-goal performance from Gylfi Sigurdsson will have fantasy managers everywhere asking: is Gylfi back?

The Icelandic international could have had a hat-trick but missed his very clear chance at a goal when he chipped a penalty that hit the crossbar in the 52nd minute. But Siggy made up for it within four minutes after curling a beautiful effort around his defender for the opening goal, making him the leading active player for goals scored from outside the box. Ten minutes later, Cenk Tosun double the Toffees lead with a header from a Theo Walcott cross and then Sigurdsson sealed the 3-0 win over Fulham with a counter-attack goal off a Bernard assist in the 89th.

Jordan Pickford is among the worst in the Premier League in terms of goals conceded as their 2-0 loss brought the total to 11.

The company Pickford are keeping in terms of goals conceded include teams that have played Manchester City, face relegation, or both. Not good company to keep for Marco Silva's side who have not played City (or Liverpool) and should be well above the relegation zone come the end of the season. Still the defense is struggling enough that goals should be expected from Everton's opponents.
