Team News: Everton v Norwich City

22 November 2019

Norwich City could be boosted by the return of centre-back Christoph Zimmermann for this weekend's game at Everton.

Zimmermann has been injured since the trip to West Ham United in August but Daniel Farke admits the 26-year-old could make his return at Goodison Park.

He said: "Christoph Zimmermann is back in team training. He’s available. He’s a fit lad and he could start. We will have to see."

Elsewhere, Kenny McLean and Teemu Pukki have recovered from slight knocks picked up on international duty and are both available for the trip.

The news was not all positive though at the Lotus Training Centre. Farke revealed that Jamal Lewis will miss the weekend after failing to recover from an injury picked up in Northern Ireland's goalless draw with the Netherlands.

The City boss also confirmed that Josip Drmic will be sidelined until January with a muscle fibre injury.

"We don't expect Josip to return for another six weeks. He has a serious muscle crack in his hamstring."

The head coach also added news on a setback with club captain Grant Hanley: "We have some bad news. Grant Hanley hasn’t been able to train with as he's had a setback in his rehab. I hope he can return to team training soon.

"It's not a major setback. We have to be careful with him. We will decide from day-to-day."
