Everton’s Jean-Philippe Gbamin faces another layoff after knee injury 

The Everton midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin is facing yet another extended spell on the sidelines after suffering a knee injury in training.

The £22.5m signing from Mainz in 2019 made his first appearance under Carlo Ancelotti only last week, as a 79th-minute substitute against Crystal Palace, having been out for 20 months with a thigh injury that required two operations followed by an achilles injury sustained on the Ivorian’s return to first-team training.

Gbamin’s cameo against Palace was only the third outing of his Everton career and, while the club are awaiting the results of a scan scheduled for Tuesday, there are concerns the unfortunate midfielder faces another lengthy absence.

A club statement confirmed: “Jean-Philippe Gbamin is not in Everton’s match-day squad for tonight’s Premier League match at Brighton & Hove Albion after sustaining a contact knee injury during training at the weekend.

“Manager Carlo Ancelotti confirmed the 25-year-old Ivorian midfielder will miss the clash on the south coast, with Gbamin set to undergo a scan in London tomorrow to determine the extent of the injury.”
