Gibson To Miss A Month

@Everton

David Moyes has revealed that Darron Gibson is expected to face a month on the sidelines with a thigh injury.

The former Manchester United man sat out Sunday’s 2-1 defeat against Chelsea and is now set to miss the first month of 2013, starting with the trip to Newcastle United on Wednesday evening.

Moyes also admitted that the game at St James’ Park could come too soon for several of his other injured players as well.

Kevin Mirallas, Phil Neville, Tony Hibbert and Seamus Coleman have all been unavailable through injury in recent weeks.

However, the timely return of the influential Marouane Fellaini is a boost to the injury-hit Blues.

“He [Gibson] is going to be out for about four weeks,” said Moyes at his pre-match press conference.

“I don’t know if we will have anybody back from injury for this game, although we obviously have Marouane back from suspension.

“We would like a few players back but so would most clubs in the Premier League.

“It’s a test to try and find a team that can win without its best players but you have to try and find solutions to win you games.”
