Everton boss David Moyes faced an anxious wait after seeing Mikel Arteta carried off on a stretcher at Newcastle on Sunday.

Moyes, who is also hoping Victor Anichebe suffered no lasting damage in the two-footed challenge which earned Kevin Nolan a red card, was expecting the results of a scan on Arteta's knee on Sunday evening.

Arteta was carried off after twisting his knee just three minutes into the goalless draw at St James' Park, and Moyes admitted the initial reports were far from promising, saying: "We have not got all the news yet, but it is not looking particularly good news at the moment."

He added: "He has gone back to Liverpool for a scan but we will wait until we get the final outcome before we can assess it."
