Everton fans gutted as Sigurdsson knee injury appears serious

Everton fans have been reacting to the news that Gylfi Sigurdsson may be out for the rest of the season with knee ligament damage.

Sigurdsson appeared to sustain a serious knee injury in the 2-0 win against Brighton on Saturday, but continued playing anyway. In fact, the Icelandic international ran 11.11 kilometers in the match, despite getting the injury in the 23rd minute.

The Blues won the match 2-0 thanks to Cenk Tosun and a Gaëtan Bong own goal, but the result may feel insignificant if Sigurdsson is seriously hurt.

While the extent of the injury is not yet known, Sigurdsson was sent to see a specialist amid fears of serious ligament damage. The 28 year-old will definitely be out for the next couple of weeks, and there are even concerns about his availability for Iceland at the World Cup.

Sigurdsson signed for Everton last summer, and is perhaps the one big money signing that has shown his class at times for the club. While he still has plenty of doubters at Goodison, most fans are gutted to hear the news that his season could be over.
