'Can't you be wrong for once': Some Everton fans react to what Fabrizio Romano has tweeted

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Everton midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure will be out for up to seven weeks with a foot injury.

The Toffees star has been key for Rafael Benitez this season, registering two goals and four assists in the league.

However, Doucoure suffered a stress response in his foot in Sunday’s 1-0 home defeat to West Ham.

Everton released a statement regarding the midfielder’s injury on Tuesday.

It read: “Everton can confirm that Abdoulaye Doucoure has suffered a stress response in a bone in his foot sustained during Sunday’s match against West Ham United.

“The French midfielder is being assessed by the Club’s medical team at USM Finch Farm and is undergoing further investigation to determine the full extent of the injury.”

On a more positive note, Everton also confirmed that, “contrary to reports, Doucoure will not require an operation.”

Everton didn’t provide a timescale, but Romano believes that the 28-year-old is expected back in six to seven weeks.

Doucoure replied to Romano with a flexed bicep emoji and a blue heart.

And Everton fans wished Doucoure all the best in his recovery, as well as bemoaning their luck:

Benitez remains without midfield alternatives Andre Gomes and Fabian Delph due to injury.

In addition, strikers Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison have also struggled with fitness problems.
