Everton fans react on Twitter after reported shattering blow ahead of Liverpool derby

By Will Butcher

Everton fans are bemoaning their luck on Twitter after Ramiro Funes Mori was carried off on a stretcher while on international duty with Argentina.

The Liverpool Echo report that the 26-year-old is now a huge doubt for Saturday’s Merseyside derby, after being withdrawn in the 37th minute with what appeared to be a knee injury.

Argentina suffered a surprise 2-0 defeat following Funes Mori’s injury, going down to Bolivia in a 2018 World Cup qualifier on Tuesday night.

The injury to Funes Mori will come as a huge blow to the Toffees, who have already lost Ireland international Seamus Coleman after he suffered a broken leg against Wales.

Although Funes Mori was unlikely to start with Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka featuring from the off in the Toffees’ last encounter against Hull, the injury will leave Koeman with little to choose from at the back ahead of Saturday’s clash.

Everton fans are distraught on Twitter after hearing of Funes Mori’s latest injury, with most complaining that this month’s international break is a waste of time.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:


Signed by Roberto Martinez back in the summer of 2015 from Argentinian giants River Plate, Funes Mori has gone on to make 63 appearances for the Toffees in all competitions.
