Yakubu blow for Toffees

Published Add your comment

Everton striker Ayegbeni Yakubu has been ruled out for the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles.

Toffees manager David Moyes confirmed the injury after watching his side win 1-0 at Tottenham.

Nigeria international Yakubu lasted just 11 minutes before hobbling down the tunnel after coming off second-best in a challenge with Ledley King.

Moyes also indicated Louis Saha - only recently returned from injury - could miss significant time with an injured hamstring.

Moyes said: "The victory has hit us really hard."
