Everton’s Seamus Coleman to have scan on suspected muscle injury

Everton’s Seamus Coleman to have scan on suspected muscle injury

Seamus Coleman will have a scan on what is believed to be a muscle injury, according to Everton boss Sam Allardyce.

Coleman was withdrawn at half-time in the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace – only his second appearance since returning from nearly a year out with a broken leg.

Allardyce does not think the knock is related to his previous broken leg and hopes Coleman can gain the benefits of a warm-weather training camp abroad next week.

“I don’t know what Seamus’ (injury) is. I’ll have to find out. I know he’s going for a scan tomorrow,” Allardyce said.

“I don’t think (it’s related to his previous injury). I think it’s more of a muscle, than to do with the leg. The scan will have to be taken tomorrow.

“I think the good thing is we’re on a warm-weather training break now we’re not in the FA Cup. Anybody who is going to out to warm-weather training – get a bit of sun, get a bit of sea, get a bit of recovery – it helps with any injuries.

“They get fitter quicker, recovers the lads. So let’s come back and take the task of beating Watford.

“Jonjoe [Kenny] stepped in that role no problem at all. The substitutes played a big part in us winning the game today.”
