Saha's Season May Be Over

Frenchman set to miss rest of campaign after ankle surgery.

Saha's Season May Be Over
Louis Saha

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."

Mikel ArreguiAll top teams have 2 good players per position, and that's what we should aspire to have too. Injuries will always happen, therefore the need of having more than just 11 good players.

brennan finneganPaul Fearon Most sensible fans would prefer experienced first team players on the bench instead of those whove never played in the first team before.

Paul Fearonany team with 6 first teamers out , all from midfield or forwards are going to struggle to put a decent team out, if we do get investment, who sits on the bench when we have a fully fit squad?

david harmanBad news about Saha but now is the time to give the young strikers in the second team a chance, we have nothing to lose who will we use if Becks gets injured.

Milin Chandrawe have only one option now...get the strikers from reserves squad. Vellios, Guyue have proved themselves worthy Baxter may have done the thing but injuries again.. so i think a bit of 4-3-3 with guyue vellios and beckford all up front. No anichebe please!! and this formation looks a bit promising too with all the stars upfront!

alexis leungWhat do we play if we have no Saha, no Arteta, no Cahill, no Fellaini, no Coleman, no Rodwell........ ? Villa attacks from both wings but they do not have a lot of ability knocking balls in. You don't see Bent doing a lot of that, he picks balls up from behind to score. Their new boys play pretty well but if we defend calmly we can fence them off. COYB.

Graeme TierneyI think it was Walter that played Watson up front for that run, overlooking Joe-Max Moore in the process. I remember us beating Southampton and Derby. Moyesy used him on the right of midfield quite a bit which wrked quite well

Paul HowellsAs much of a tongue in cheek jester that is by the Bondies we did once play a right back up front for a few games under Moyes in Steve Watson, although he actually managed more goals from defence as if I remeber rightly he didn't score any during those few games (but got a hat trick against Leeds at Goodison from defence)

Alec WalkerHi Clare, did I sense a bit of sarcasm in your note. D.M. has to weigh the interest of fans against letting the opposition have too much information. I remember a long time ago when we were playing Blackpool.supporters never knew if Mathews was playing until we were in the ground just before kick off.

Paul Wrobelwow amazing, an injury update after ages. by now every fan already knows.

Friday 1st April 15:44 Report Comment

THE BONDIESIs our luck on the injury front ever gonna change?.Can we recall the yak from his loan spell as we are a bit short up front,if not chuck hibbert up front let him score the goals to beat the villa and see us climb above the reds before the season finishes.HIBBERT is a legend.IMWT.;)
