Allardyce confirms Everton 28-y/o who got standing ovation last week is major doubt v Huddersf'd
Sam Allardyce has confirmed that Morgan Schneiderlin is a doubt for tomorrow’s Premier League clash with Huddersfield.
He’s not the only doubt either, with Leighton Baines and Dominic Calvert-Lewin also racing against time to make it.
Allardyce was talking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Saturday game and confirmed that all three would have late fitness tests.
He was quoted by Fantasy Football Scout on Friday morning.
Sam Allardyce: “We’re concerned about Morgan Schneiderlin (dead leg), Leighton Baines has a cut and Calvert-Lewin (back). We’re waiting on tomorrow for those three.” https://t.co/pryGnnP1iv

Football Insider verdict:
Schneiderlin will be a big loss if he’s not fit tomorrow, as he finally looks like he’s finding his feet at Goodison after getting savagely criticised by fans. After being booed by fans in the game against Crystal Palace, he got a standing ovation in Monday’s game after a display that hinted he was getting back to his best. On a personal level he’ll be desperate to get out and play and prove to the fans that the game against Newcastle wasn’t a one-off and that he can continue to have the sort of influence that his £20million transfer fee from Man United demands.
