George And Raso Injury Updates

Everton can confirm defender Gabby George fully ruptured her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during the Blues’ 5-0 FA Cup victory at Bristol City last Monday.

England international George sustained the knee injury in the first minute of the contest at Ashton Gate.

The 23-year-old has begun a period of rehabilitation at USM Finch Farm and the Club will provide further updates in due course.

Meanwhile, new signing Hayley Raso sustained a broken nose while on international duty with Australia which required surgery.

The forward will now join Everton after next month’s international break ahead of the Club’s FA Cup quarter-final at home to Chelsea on Sunday 15 March.
