Man Utd star on loan Van de Beek OUT of Everton clash at West Ham after picking up injury in warm-up
DONNY VAN DE BEEK has been ruled out of Everton’s trip to West Ham after picking up an injury during his warm-up.
The Dutchman was expected to start in midfield at the London Stadium until his pre-match move was revealed.
Mason Holgate replaced Van de Beek in midfield while Frank Lampard was also without injured pair Nathan Patterson and Andre Gomes.
The on-loan Manchester United playmaker had spoken to Sky Sports ahead of the game amid Everton’s poor form.
Van de Beek said: “I think everyone has to stand up and take some responsibility.
“It’s the only way to turn the tide to win games. Everyone has to show responsibility now.”
Van de Beek’s matchday substitute Holgate spoke about Everton’s chances of survival in the Premier League and Lampard’s coaching staff.
He said: “We are very confident to stay on our feet.
“I think the gaffer now and the team he’s brought in are amazing, I think everyone in the team thinks that too.
“It’s a difficult situation he got into.
“But I think he’s a great manager, and I think we’re all going to benefit from him and as the season goes on everyone is going to see him.
“We all have total faith, he goes into every detail and we know exactly what we need to do.”
