Lucas Digne will miss tomorrow night's quarter-final clash with Leicester City, Everton have confirmed.

The Blues left-back was forced off early in Sunday's game against Manchester United with a groin problem and he has been ruled out of the tie at Goodison.

Fabian Delph is stepping up his return from a hamstring injury but Everton say the game is likely to come too soon for the 29-year-old.

Gylfi Sigurdsson and Djibril Sidibe, who both missed the trip to Old Trafford through illness, will face late checks before a decision is made on their availability.

Caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson remains in charge for the game and said: “Lucas got a strain on his groin area so how long it’s going to be, I’m not quite sure, but obviously he won’t be fit for Wednesday,” Ferguson said.

“Delph is closer but I think the game will come too soon for him.

”We’re hopeful on Gylfi. We’ll wait and see. That’ll go right to the wire, I think.”
