Everton fans have been on the edge of their seats awaiting a report on the injury Morgan Schneiderlin sustained against Hull City, and the team was able to provide relatively good news this morning.

The Frenchman’s calf injury is deemed to be a minor one, and he’ll continue to be assessed at USM Finch Farm ahead of what can likely be described as the biggest match of the season at Anfield against Liverpool.

Morgan Schneiderlin suffered a minor calf injury during the weekend’s 4-0 win over Hull City and will continue to be monitored at Finch Farm ahead of the Merseyside derby on Saturday 1 April.

Schneiderlin limped off after 30 minutes against the Tigers and subsequently underwent a scan.

The Frenchman will remain under assessment by the Club’s medical team before a determination is reached on when he is able to return to action.

Ronald Koeman will be anxious for Schneiderlin to be passed fit for the Merseyside Derby as the midfielder is key to Everton’s hopes of knocking off Liverpool at Anfield for the first time since 1999.
