Dyche Gives Injury Updates

Sean Dyche has provided injury updates on James Tarkowski, Arnaut Danjuma and Dwight McNeil following Everton's 1-0 pre-season friendly win over Sporting CP at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The Blues boss said he was hopeful defender Tarkowski, who was forced off late on against the Portuguese giants, sustained "just a knock" and the Club was "being ultra careful" ahead of next weekend's Premier League opener against Fulham.

Danjuma - who joined the Blues on loan this summer from Villarreal - missed the match against Sporting but Dyche confirmed the forward had picked up a minor knock and is "hopeful he will be back on grass next week".

Fellow winger McNeil went off late on against Stoke City last weekend, with Dyche admitting the ex-Burnley man was "facing a little period out so we’ll have to see how that settles down".
