Richarlison worry for Everton

26th April 2019, 05:42 by Michael Holland

Everton will have to check on the fitness of Richarlison as they head into Saturday's clash away at Crystal Palace.

Richarlison started the 4-0 rout against Manchester United last Sunday with a magnificent acrobatic overhead kick but was later withdrawn, clutching his left side as he went off minutes after half-time.

Boss Marco Silva revealed Richarlison is a "major doubt" to face the Eagles, while Theo Walcott, the Brazilian striker's replacement against United and who completed the scoring, is struggling with sickness.

However, Lucas Digne, another on the scoresheet last weekend, has recovered from a knock he suffered which forced his late withdrawal while Yerry Mina has resumed full training.

Speaking at his press conference to preview the game Silva said: "Lucas is OK but Richarlison is a major doubt for us. He tried yesterday (Wednesday) to work with us and again today. We will see how he reacts tomorrow.

"Theo was sick this morning, so we will also see how he reacts. Yerry Mina started training with the team at the beginning of the week and is doing well."
