Elyounoussi Only Injury Doubt For Trip To Goodison park
Thursday, 16th Aug 2018 15:26
Mark Hughes has confirmed that he has almost a complete squad to select from for the Weekend's trip to Merseyside.
Mark Hughes has confirmed that Stuart Armstrong has shrugged off the knock that forced him off during Sunday's home draw with Burnley, however another of the summer's new signings is looking doubtful.
Speaking to the media ahead of Saturday's game against Everton Hughes said:
"At the moment, apart from maybe Moi at the weekend, we’ve got everyone fit and available"
“Stuart Armstrong got a knock but he looks ok and has trained today so I don’t anticipate him missing out."
“Moi Elyounoussi got a bit tense in his hamstring. He trained with the physios and went better than the physios thought but we will see how he is."
“Even if he doesn’t have a reaction there is a feeling maybe we err on the side of safety but we will see.”
"We have a 25-man squad and it’s there to last the whole season. We’ll lose players to injuries and suspensions at times but for the most part now everyone is ready to go. "
"That’s a good thing on many levels but obviously you end up disappointing players who haven’t done anything wrong but would hope to be involved. It's a nice problem to have."
Hughes is right it is a squad game these days and he is not short of options for the trip to Goodison with his only real problem being to decide whether to play 3 at the back of revert to a back four.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
