Lukaku ruled out for “weeks”

first_img Manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed the Belgium international did not sustain a serious injury in the 4-0 defeat in Tuesday night’s Merseyside derby at Anfield. Lukaku was carried off on a stretcher after colliding with team-mate Gareth Barry as they tried to prevent Steven Gerrard scoring the first goal in the 21st minute. “There is no ligament damage and the injury is not as bad as we first thought,” Martinez told evertonfc.com. “It will be a case of weeks rather than months.” Lukaku has scored nine goals in 20 appearances since joining on loan from Chelsea in the summer. He joins the likes of Bryan Oviedo (broken leg), Arouna Kone and Darron Gibson (both knee) and Seamus Coleman and Sylvain Distin (both hamstring) on the injury list. Everton will contact Liverpool after a number of concerns were highlighted by visiting fans about access problems to Anfield. “We are aware of a significant number of complaints regarding queue management from supporters waiting to enter Anfield at last night’s derby match,” said director of communications Alan Myers. “The club will make contact with Liverpool Football Club to raise these matters.” Press Associationcenter_img Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is likely to be out for “weeks rather than months” with an ankle injury.last_img read more

However, a determined effort from Shai Hope (123*) and Shimron Hetmyer (94) helped West Indies tie the game.

The work being carried out in the twin towns is an important step in reducing risk and protecting the community.”Flood relief schemes worth about €11million have been announced to protect Lifford, Castlefin, Burnfoot, Ballybofey-Stranorlar, Downings, Glenties and Kerrykeel. Mr Harley added: “We now have written confirmation to Donegal County Council that it can access the €157,500 funding by mid-November to carry out work in Ballybofey-Stranorlar and officials are also committed to ensuring ongoing maintenance.“I met Minister for the Office of Public Works and Flood Relief Kevin Boxer Moran to discuss flood relief plans a number of weeks ago and I want to thank him for his continued focus on the needs of flood relief schemes in Donegal.”€157,500 funding for flood efforts in Stranorlar-Ballybofey was last modified: July 31st, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BallybofeyCllr Martin HarleydonegalfloodsStranorlarlast_img read more
