Everton FC injury data: 2009/10 – 2016/17

As with all Premier League clubs, injuries are an ongoing concern for Everton – who certainly have their fair share of long-term injuries to key players.

Everton FCAlthough there are quite a few ‘injury trackers’ online, there are no good resources that show the actual impact that injuries to certain players have on a season. Many injuries that are recorded are brief and don’t result in a player missing any games – which can skew the data and not give a reliable account of how a clubs injuries have affected their season.

Therefore we’ve have tracked all the injuries to Everton players over the past eight seasons which actually forced the player to miss games.

Now we’re looking for your input to help get an idea on how much these injuries may have harmed our chances during that season, or if they had no impact at all.

Have your say over on Facebook and we’ll add them to the below injury analysis…
