Everton are set to be without Darron Gibson for a month after the midfielder was sidelined by a thigh strain.

The Republic of Ireland international missed Sunday's 2-1 home defeat by Chelsea and afterwards manager David Moyes said he expected the player to be out for a while.

On Monday Moyes was able to put a more specific timescale on Gibson's absence, saying: "I think he's going to be out for about four weeks."
