Amadou Onana (22) will most likely remain sidelined at Everton on Sunday. His coach Sean Dyche confirmed this at his press conference on Friday. The Red Devil is still struggling with a calf injury. Everton hosts Manchester United on matchday thirteen of the Premier League.

“I don’t think it will work out (for Sunday, ed.) with Amadou Onana. His calf still hurts,” Dyche said briefly.

Onana injured her calf in early November, in the run-up to the league match against Brighton (1-1). He stayed against the Seagulls sidelined, but started a week later, on Armistice Day, in the match at Crystal Palace (2-3). His performance was limited to one half. After the break he did not come out of the dressing room.

In the following international match, the midfielder did not play for the Red Devils. National coach Domenico Tedesco did include him in his squad for the friendly match against Serbia (1-0) and the last European Championship qualifier against Azerbaijan (5-0), but Onana turned out to be insufficiently fit to play. During the match in Leuven against Serbia he was still in the stands, two days later he left the selection.
