Everton midfielder Darron Gibson will probably go under the knife at the end of the season to fix a troublesome thigh problem. The 25-year-old scored from long-range in Saturday's 2-0 win over QPR, and boss David Moyes would like to see him do it more frequently but believes it is not possible currently.

"After the game on Saturday, I was asked about Darron Gibson's goal and his shot - I think he could do it more and with more ferocity as well because he's got a great shot on him," said the Scot.

"He has got a bit of a problem at the top of his thigh which will probably require an operation at the end of the season."
