The Spaniard was apparently injured in a clash with striker Oumar Niasse during a practice game at Finch Farm.
Deulofeu won't recover in time from a minor medial ligament injury to take part in any of the three remaining fixtures.
Deulofeu returned to Goodison Park last summer on a permanent deal worth £4.2m and made
26 32 appearances in all for the Blues this season, 19 as a starter and 13 off the bench scoring two goals.

The lad needs to be a lot fitter and given a good run in the side if we are going to see the best out of him.

That said we are simply a better side when he plays so I hope he is a regular starter under the new manager come August.

Perhaps Gerri gave it to him in a language (Spanish) that he understands, and has suffered for it ever since. Cameo role at best. Where has he been for the last 10 fixtures. Is Gerri a bit player?
Don't think so, crossed Roberto and payed for it, just like Leighton (refuse to use his surname). Cross him at your peril!!!

Unfortunately we need to maintain our sense of humor when all else is crashing around us.

He started really well but come December went off the boil and hasn't recovered since as the team has struggled. Coupled with Lennons purple patch from Jan to Mar I can see how his opportunities became less frequent.
I don't really buy into this "crossed Martinez" conspiracy on this one. It was just rank bad form and maybe poor application from the player as a whole. I blame Martinez for many things but not this one.
If Deulofeu wants to be a top player he needs to shape up. Let's not forget his mixed season with Seville as well.

What's more... I think he gets what Everton FC all about.
Wishing him all best with recovery.

Now I know why our financial situation is so bad - 19 + 13 = 32. Elstone needs to sort this out!

He might do OK with right guidance etc but his track record is not good at the top level failed at Seville & Barca don't get rid of top players.
The buy-back clause is just a cheap insurance policy no chance they'll take it up on the evidence to date.

Fittest teams in the league; Tottenham and Leicester; who have hardly had a key injury all season is no coincidence. .
Barca, AtlÃ©tico, Bayern and now Tottenham and Kloop's Liverpool all press on the ball high up the pitch and all have the same ethos; 3 second rule to get the ball back when its lost.
Simple: work your arses off in pre-season to reap the benefits at the business end. Change of Manager required to implement.

We all blamed the sub par opponents in pre season.
Simply getting the players fit isn't enough otherwise we would have actually won something under Moyes.
35 Posted 03/05/2016 at 19:25:26
How about a manager who can get the balance right?

The 22-year-old suffered a grade one tear of his medial knee ligament after a freak training ground accident with Oumar Niasse last Friday.
Oops! Niasse's cost to Everton goes up by the day!
