Sigurdsson set for spell out after Jorginho challenge – Silva

News
Everton boss Marco Silva was left seething at Jorginho's challenge on Gylfi Sigurdsson and fears he could face time out with an injury.

Everton boss Marco Silva was left seething at Jorginho’s challenge on Gylfi Sigurdsson and fears he could face time out with an injury.

The incident happened during the Toffees’ hard-fought goalless draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday with Silva now expecting the attacking midfielder to miss Iceland’s upcoming matches with Belgium and Qatar in this two-week international break.

The Portuguese tactician said: ‘Did you see the tackle of Jorginho? I hope we don’t lose Sigurdsson for the next matches after that tackle from Jorginho.

‘I think he’s not in a condition to play for the national team. Let’s see in the next days.’

Meanwhile, Silva also dismissed an off-the-ball incident between Bernard and Antonio Rudiger.

The height difference of one foot and Rudiger’s amateur dramatics might have helped Bernard escape with a booking for motioning his head towards the defender. Referee Kevin Friend doled out seven yellow cards in all.

He added: ‘Bernard? I didn’t see, but you think Bernard with his size can do something? I didn’t see, but I don’t believe.’
