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.
“With both Zouma and Keane, with Mina, with Jagielka coming back as well, with Mason – it will be tough for me to make a decision.It’s a headache for sure, but in this way the club will grow. Problems for me to decide over are fantastic and it’s what all coaches want. For the players, they have to compete really hard if they want to compete in our starting XI,” said Silva. After the game against Leicester, Everton return from the international break with a home game against Crystal Palace.
