Darron Gibson may need surgery on his thigh problem at the end of the season, according to Everton boss David Moyes.
Gibson is still troubled with the injury which saw him miss three months of action in the early season and the majority of January and, although he has been starting games lately, he is still troubled by the problem.
Moyes revealed that the injury is holding Gibson back when it comes to shooting from distance – his deflected goal against QPR was only his second since joining the club in January 2012.
“After the game on Saturday, I was asked about Darron Gibson’s goal and his shot – I think he could do it more and with more ferocity as well because he’s got a great shot on him,” said Moyes.
“He has got a bit of a problem at the top of his thigh which will probably require an operation at the end of the season.”
“What he has given us is that he is good on the ball and he has a better range of passing than maybe some of the other midfielders we have,” added Moyes.
“I think overall he has had an impact. He had a bit of a dip midway through after he came back from his injury but his form is good right now.”
