Everton manager Marco Silva has claimed that the fitness position of Yerry Mina does provide him with a lot of issues in terms of selection, but he is glad to have such a selection headache for the time being. After having struggled to name a consistent defensive line so far this season, Silva is now looking forward to a selection headache in this position. Everton have had numerous changes in the defence due to the elements like injuries and suspension. Phil Jagielka has been unavailable for the last three matches after getting a suspension, while Michael Keane was unavailable for up to 4 weeks due to an injury. Kurt Zouma came into the backline as the club’s new signing – on loan from Chelsea.
In recent matches, however, Keane and Zouma have been able to form a great partnership in the centre of defence and Everton travel to the King Power Stadium looking for three points. Now, Everton also have the availability of Mina, who trained with the squad and is looking to make his comeback just after the international break. Silva claimed that Zouma and Keane have been playing well while the return of Mina and Jagielka makes it a competitive position in the defence. Everton have had an indifferent first few weeks in the 2018-19 campaign.
