After our win against Newcastle on Monday we now have a top three finish in our own hands, and next up is a tricky away tie at Goodison Park on Sky’s Super Sunday.
Early indications are that the team news isn’t looking too bad but it looks like Xhaka, Koscielny and Ramsey could be small doubts for the game.
The Evening Standard claim that the trio will undergo fitness tests on Friday ahead of the trip up north. Ramsey looks the most likely of the three to make the game after limping off with what looked to be cramp on Monday night. If he fails to make the game, he’ll no doubt get involved with a flutter at the best american online casino around at the moment.
Granit Xhaka has a groin issue and missed the Newcastle game, and it is yet to be seen if he will be risked at Everton, while Laurent Koscielny, who also missed the Newcastle game will also be assessed, and they claim that Friday’s press conference will confirm whether or not they will travel.
The Standard reckon the Frenchman was injured in the lead up to the Newcastle game on Monday and withdrew with a bruised foot ahead of the game, surely he’ll have a few internet betting sites lined up to pass the time if he doesn’t travel to Everton.
A win would see us leapfrog Spurs, getting ourselves back into third spot as the run-in gathers pace during the business end of the Premier League season.
Our run in doesn’t look too precarious on paper but we have to face quite a few teams who seem to be hitting some form, Everton, Leicester, Watford, Wolves and Burnley away could be seen as the trickier games, while our two remaining home games, Palace and Brighton should be winnable but you never know in this topsy turvy league we call Premier.
