#PLStories: Rafa Benitez gives Fabian Delph and Andre Gomes injury update #EVERTONFC

Wolverhampton Wanderers will welcome Everton to Molineux on Monday, November 1 (8pm kick-off) but the visitors could be left without key players due to ongoing injury issues. The Merseyside club fell to a 5-2 home defeat against newly-promoted side Watford last Saturday. Richarlison, who had been sidelined with a knee problem since the start of September made his return at the weekend and scored the Toffees’ second goal. Only a point separates the two sides, and a Wolves win would see them leapfrog eighth positioned Everton who are currently on 14 points. Heading into the encounter, head coach Rafa Benitez could have a few selection headaches.

Fabian Delph

The midfielder dislocated his shoulder in September and has now missed eight league games and cup matches. Although the Spanish boss previously said he ‘still needs time’ to fully recover, the club have scheduled his return for November, although it could take slightly longer.

Rafael Benitez said: “He’s getting better, stronger and is quite positive and waiting for the green light to start training with the team.”  

Andre Gomes

The Portuguese has also been unavailable with a calf injury and is expected to return at some point next month.

Rafael Benitez said : “Andre is closer and you never know because it can change in one training session and he will have a problem. But, in a couple of weeks, he will be fine.”
