West Ham play host to Everton in the Premier League tomorrow in what is a huge game for the home side, and according to Carlo Ancelotti, the Toffees could be missing one of their key players.

Yerry Mina is a doubt for the game against the Hammers. Ancelotti spoke to reporters yesterday and provided an update on the 6ft 5in Colombian, as quoted by EvertonFC.com:

“We have a little problem with Yerry Mina this week – he was not able to train. We have to see in the next few days if he will be available against West Ham.”

Everton have looked so much better since Ancelotti’s arrival at Goodison Park. And Mina, 25, has played a key role for his team recently.

The South American joined the Toffees from Barcelona in the summer of 2018, for a fee believed to be worth £27.2 million according to the BBC.

 

Despite a slow start to life on Merseyside, Mina has really come into his own this season.

West Ham’s job will be made a whole lot easier if the Colombia international doesn’t play tomorrow. And Sebastien Haller will certainly relish the chance to take on Everton without the former Barcelona man in the side.

The Hammers are absolutely desperate for a victory. Relegation down to the Championship is a very real possibility for David Moyes’s side this season.

With some incredibly tough fixtures to come over the course of the next two months, nothing less than a win against Everton tomorrow will do.

And if the visitors are without Mina, West Ham will fancy their chances of taking maximum points from the Merseyside outfit.
