Confirmed: Everton announce Gylfi Sigurdsson injury

Everton & Gylfi Sigurdsson

It’s been a nervous few days for fans of Everton and Iceland.

News broke on Monday that Gylfi Sigurdsson suffered a bad injury in the win over Brighton last weekend at Goodison Park.

Sigurdsson played 90 minutes against Brighton, but after the game it was reported that he suffered a “serious” injury.

The fear was that Sigurdsson had torn ligaments in his knee.

Confirmed: Sigurdsson’s injury timetable

On Wednesday Everton have made a public announcement regarding Sigurdsson’s injury.

In good news for the Icelandic playmaker, his World Cup dreams are still intact. Everton told their fans:

Following consultation with a specialist, it is anticipated that Gylfi Sigurdsson’s knee injury, sustained in Saturday’s Premier League win over Brighton, will keep him sidelined for between six and eight weeks.

“We’ll continue to assess Gylfi’s progress on a week-to-week basis and the medical team will work very closely with him, as they would with any injured player, to get him back playing as quickly as possible,” said Blues manager Sam Allardyce.

Everton return to Premier League action this weekend when they take on Stoke City at the Bet365 Stadium.

Stoke lost 2-0 at home to Man City last time out.

2018 World Cup & Iceland
