Davies injury requires surgery

Tuesday, 11 January, 2022 27comments  |  Jump to last

Everton have announced that Tom Davies has undergone an operation to repair a significant hamstring injury.

The midfielder has been on the medium-term absentee list in recent weeks after picking a knee injury in November.

Davies was back in training after recovering from that problem prior to Christmas and was set to return before the Blues' festive programme was affected by the pandemic but he then sustained a fresh injury in training.

A report on evertonfc.com described Davies's latest concern as a "high-grade tendon injury" that required corrective surgery and which will keep him sidelined for a number of weeks to come.

Doesn't matter how many backroom personnel changes we make, our dismal injury record never ever seems to change.

Didn't put much stock in the rumours of an Allan departure previously, and surely this news just makes an Allan departure even more of a fairy tale type story?

Hope he recovers quickly and fully, a hammy needing an op is actually no small dealio. And please, let this be the last of the injuries...!

If Davies has to undergo surgery on a hamstring injury and I wish him all the best, to say he'll be out for 'weeks' is definitely being optimistic to say the least.

It looks like Tom won’t be going anywhere in this transfer window, sorry about his injury but it might help stop the Longstaff swap move which was muted earlier in the season. Good luck Tom with your recovery.

That's Allan not leaving then.

Just seen that too George. Why on earth are we looking at El Ghazi when we need CM and based on our current performances a CB to sort out our defensive mess!

With Richarlison yet to come back then where would El Ghazi play?!? Unless we are looking to clear Richarlison out in this window as well

Hopefully by the time he returns he will be able to impress the new manager.

Get well Tom. Best of luck to you.

Agreed, Christy, this sounds like a long-term thing. Surgery on a hammy is highly unusual in a player so young. And the word "significant" is... well... significant.

A ‘high-grade tendon injury’ requiring surgery suggests Tom will be out for many months rather than weeks. I think we are unlikely to see him before next season.

My Villa mate has been telling me for 3 years that El Ghazi is crap and a headless chicken and we want him. It's the one position we don't need with Richarlison, Gray, Townsend, Gordon and iwobi. Trying to support Rafa but give me strength!!!

Come back stronger Tom D. Seems like we took a long time to conclude an operation in needed!

He will be like a new singing when he comes back next season and perfect for a championship at best club like Everton...

Get well soon Tom...

Best wishes young man, your full recovery may well up the ante for those vying with you for a place on the bench.

Good luck to Tom, hopefully this is one big career injury, and will have a good career with us. I am in the camp that thinks he is a very good footballer, but has been affected by all the managerial changes. I think his role could be as a finisher - like protecting a lead.

Time for Gomes, Gbamin and Onyango to step up.Another midfield signing is now a priority- even if it is on loan. Someone like Von de Beek or similar.

Sad for him but makes zero difference to us

He's a good player and still of the age where he can improve. Unfortunately being injured, ( I agree this sounds like a month's not week's injury) can really prevent any youngster from developing.

So in terms of squad and team rotation it does hurt us, but no, he's not a top class midfielder, I don't think we have one. But a good young Evertonian will mean passion, effort and full commitment. Also helps the finances as our own youth players are very rarely on top whack.

Reading back my previous post (17), the 1st sentence reads weird! What I meant to say was that every player has at least 1 major injury in their career - I hope that this is Tom's one and only major injury and he has an injury free rest of his career.

While I have sympathy for anyone with an injury, I feel Tom has been a very lucky boy, in still being with us after a decent performance against Man City, (4-0) and has dined on it ever since, without really producing any significant contribution. I fail to see what he adds on the occasions he has played for us.

Get well soon lad.

Hopefully, after a few months out, he'll come back with a bit of confidence after not being subjected to the usual abuse for a while. I long for the return of the player who always looked for a forward pass, who wasn't afraid to get on the ball and could put a crunching tackle in where necessary.

Unfortunately the boo boys seem to have dented his confidence. A fit and confident Tom can play that holding midfield role very well.

I think this lad could do a job in midfield alongside Doucoure and Allan, he could sit whilst they roam. He did well in that spell of 4 successive victories we had last Christmas in that position.

Good luck in your recovery, Tom.

Good job we changed our fitness coach eh, otherwise Tom's head would have probably fallen off rather than just a major hamstring injury.

Sad to say, but I haven't missed him.

Get well.

Hope he comes back a better player.
