Funes Mori injury adds to Everton woes

Ramiro Funes Mori has been added to an Everton injury list that includes Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy and Morgan Schneiderlin.

Yannick Bolasie and Muhamed Besic are also sidelined – but are long-term absentees.

Mori was injured while playing for Argentina in their 2-0 defeat to Bolivia, and had to be stretchered off, and was replaced after just 36 minutes by Matias Caruzzo.

He had missed the 3-0 win over Colombia last Thursday due to suspension.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman must now wait to see if the 26-year-old former River Plate man will be back in time to face Liverpool in the Merseyside derby this weekend.

The Reds are, meanwhile, sweating on injuries sustained by a number of their players during this international break, including Thibaut Courtois and Adam Lallana.

A brief statement from Everton read: "Ramiro Funes Mori was forced from the field after just 36 minutes in Argentina’s 2-0 defeat to Bolivia on Tuesday evening.

"The defender departed the action on a stretcher after suffering an injury in the World Cup qualifier in La Paz.

"The former River Plate man has made 26 appearances for Everton this season."
