Everton started their 2019/20 Premier League campaign last weekend with a 0-0 stalemate against Crystal Palace.

A draw is not the worst way to start the season but there is no doubt that many Toffees fans will be frustrated with the result.

Everton must ideally aim to secure three points against sides such as Palace if they want to stand a chance of pushing for a top-six finish this season.

The Toffees are next in action against Watford this weekend. They will be hoping to have as many key players available for the game, from which they will be aiming to get three points.

In Everton injury news, Andre Gomes will continue to be monitored after having to be withdrawn just before half-time during the game against Palace, as reported by The Echo. 

The Portugal international’s injury is not serious and he will soon be back in action as soon as he gets a go-ahead from the medical team.

The report added that Everton midfieler Fabian Delph will also soon be available. The Toffees summer signing from Manchester City missed the game against Palace following a groin injury while playing during pre-season against Werder Bremen.

Leighton Baines was another Everton player who missed the game against Palace due to an unspecified injury.

Toffees manager Marco Silva admitted that his decision to not play the veteran was a late call. This likely indicates that the player’s injury is also not serious.

All in all, Everton have nothing serious to worry about in terms of injuries.
