​Everton boss Lampard admits concern over Yerry Mina injury

Everton manager Frank Lampard admitted that centre-back Yerry Mina will have a due to have a scan on the calf injury he sustained against Leicester City.

The defender is a doubt for the remainder of the season after he came off within 20 minutes of the Premier League clash against the Foxes on Sunday.

Losing Mina would be a big blow to Lampard, as his side aim to avoid relegation, despite their impressive 2-1 win against Leicester on Sunday.

"Yerry had a small feeling in his calf," Lampard said post-game.

"We don't know [how bad it is yet].

"Hopefully it isn't a tear. He felt it in his calf, so he had to come off.

"We're hoping it's not a high-level injury and we can keep him involved in the next two weeks. He will have a scan tomorrow.

"With Myko [left-back Vitaliy Mykolenko], we hope it was just cramp. It would be a result if that is the case."
