Huge Disappointment As Seamus Coleman Taken Off Injured During Everton Win

Seamus Coleman was taken off at half-time today during Everton's 3-1 victory against Crystal Palace.

The Irishman started the game but was replaced at half-time by Johnjoe Kenny and is set for scans for what manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed was a muscle injury. Allardyce also said the injury is not related to the leg-break Coleman suffered last year that ruled him out for 10 months.

Coleman's return to football came against Leicester City just ten days ago and he instantly impressed while playing a full 90 minutes. The 29-year-old came off with the score at 0-0.

Everton went on to win the game 3-1 thanks to goals by Tom Davies, Oumar Niasse and Gylfi Sigurðsson.

Seamus Coleman did not play any senior football for 319 days so a return was always going to be taxing on his body. Hopefully, it is just a minor knock and he can look to regain his form as one of the best full-backs in the league.
