Saha's Season May Be Over
Frenchman set to miss rest of campaign after ankle surgery.
Everton manager David Moyes has confirmed the Blues are likely to be without top-scorer Louis Saha for the remainder of the season.
The French international fell awkwardly in Everton's 2-1 win over Fulham in their last Premier League outing and has since had an operation on the injury.
Saha has scored 10 goals for the Blues this season, with nine of them coming since the turn of the year but Moyes now fears he has played his last game of the campaign.
The former Manchester United striker joins a list of absentees which includes midfield duo Mikel Arteta (hamstring) and Marouane Fellaini (ankle).
The Spaniard injured his hamstring against Birmingham last month and has been recovering in his homeland.
Moyes also has doubts over Tim Cahill, Seamus Coleman and Jack Rodwell with all three players missing international commitments over the last 10 days with injury problems.
The Blues chief said: "We have got a lot of injuries. Louis has had an operation this week which will probably rule him out for the season.
"It is football isnt' it. You pick up injuries and we try not to talk too much about them but we have a spate of them at this present time.
"Mikel has been away in Spain for a few weeks, recuperating and recovering from his hamstring problem. He is due back over the weekend and we will see how he is."
