Neville blow for Toffees

Published Add your comment

Everton face being without captain Phil Neville for up to two months after the midfielder underwent a knee operation.

Manager David Moyes confirmed in a press conference after his team's Barclays Premier League game at Reading that former England international Neville had surgery on Friday.

The news is a blow to a team already without Neville's fellow midfielder Darron Gibson, who missed a 10th successive match with a thigh problem as Everton lost 2-1 at Reading.
