Sakho fit and ready for action on Saturday

Diafra-Sakho-315346Diafa Sakho caused wide spread speculation and concern on social media yesterday after he failed to turn up for a planned media event at the Lakeside shopping centre club store.

The club were forced to announce that “Due to unforeseen circumstances Diafra Sakho is unable to attend today’s Lakeside Store appearance. The Club would like to apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment caused. Sam Byram currently meeting fans at the Store “

However, Claret and Hugh now understands that supporters should not worry and that the striker had a routine medical scan as part of his recovery from injury but he is fully fit and available for selection on Saturday against Arsenal.

Sakho suffered an injury at the end of November against West Bromwich Albion which kept him out for three months only returning for the Everton away game at the beginning of March when he came on as 59th-minute substitute to score in the 82th minute to equalise and help us win 3-2 after a 90th minute winner from Payet.

  1. The club must have known he was due a scan so why did they not replace him with another player ?
    When they tweeted yesterday why did they not say he had a scan that had been overlooked
    Most people will think this is a crock (not calling you a lier Sean ) and this is a cover up,
    But as a fan not expecting to see him the only thing I am interested in is he is fit to play
    Although this week I would play Carroll as I think he would destroy Mensaker and co at the back,

  2. Benn saying the same , carol needs a start, play 2 up front with sakho.
    3-5-2 ! Do em in m/f and let carol and sakho do their stuff !
