Everton’s Under 23 side have been handed an injury worry after midfielder Anton Donkor had to be taken off early in their game against Norwich, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The 19-year-old came off after only 10 minutes of their Premier League Cup game had elapsed after going down under a challenge from Diallang Jaiyesimi.

Before being forced to leave the field the left winger had fashioned an early chance for his side, but Kieran Dowell was only able to hit over the bar from his cross.

The young German has represented Wolfsburg at several junior levels, is now on loan at the Toffees from the Bundesliga outfit and has made two appearances for them in the Premier League 2 since joining.

Everton went on to lose the game 1-0, which leaves them level on points with Norwich in group D with Portsmouth occupying first place in the group with a trip to the south-coast side being their last pool stage fixture.
