Breaking; Huge injury blow for Everton.

Everton midfielder Dele Alli has revealed that he has suffered a setback in his recovery from injury but has vowed to “come back stronger” in a post on social media.

Taking to his Instagram account on Friday night (6 October), Alli wrote that there has been a “setback with the injury” but added that he is “making sure I come stronger than ever” alongside several pictures of himself in the gym.

Dele spent last season on loan at Besiktas and then had hip surgery in the off-season, which he has already suffered one setback in the recovery from [Daily Mail, 9 August], while he revealed a number of off-field struggles in an emotional interview with Gary Neville (13 July).

He wrote on Instagram: “Setback with the injury, but making sure I come back stronger than ever!”

Everton future still possibleEvertonThere is the possibility that Dele becomes a factor in the Everton first team in the near future because of his rehab from injury, and it would be wrong to write him off already.

Dyche’s comments regarding the Tottenham talks back in September [Liverpool Echo, 23 September) surely don’t point towards Everton potentially ending the deal but trying to make it more financially viable given his injury recovery and potential first-team chances.

The way the Toffees negotiated the initial deal back in January 2022 was exceptionally controversial, a deal which could rise to £40 million if certain performance benchmarks are met.

That is a lot of money and right now, those performance benchmarks haven’t been met hence Dyche’s revelation of Everton returning to the negotiating table with Spurs.

It certainly seems as if the former Burnley manager still believes in Alli and as long as he remains manager at Goodison Park, Alli will always have the chance of returning to the first team but that still remains a long way away as he steps up his recovery.

Everton could sorely do with the player they thought they signed back then right now but it remains to be seen whether Alli can reach those levels again and that’s not even guaranteed at a club who are struggling to fire on all cylinders in the Premier League.

In other Everton news, Dyche may have made a masterstroke behind-the-scenes decision after recently confirmed contract news on Merseyside.
