Gylfi Sigurdsson is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks because of his injured knee but could be fit for the World Cup.

The Icelandic international sustained the injury during the first half of last Saturday's win over Brighton and it was initially feared be could be out for months with serious ligament damage.

Subsequent scans and an assessment from a specialist have allayed those fears, however, and while he is unlikely to play for Everton again this season, he retains hope of leading his country in Russia this summer.

"We'll continue to assess his progress on a week-to-week basis," said manager Sam Allardyce. "The medical team will work very closely with him, to get him back playing as quickly as possible."
