Frank Lampard expects injured Ben Godrey to be out for ‘two to three months’

Everton manager Frank Lampard is weighing up his options after losing Ben Godfrey for two to three months with a broken leg in the 1-0 defeat at home to Chelsea.

Godfrey was carried off on a stretcher with what was later diagnosed as a fractured fibula just 10 minutes into their Premier League opener, while fellow defender Yerry Mina limped out of the game with 20 minutes to go.

Lampard insists he has the cover to cope, but having already been linked with a move for Wolves captain Conor Coady it is possible he will step up his efforts to bolster a defence which is still awaiting Seamus Coleman’s return from injury.

“It’s a small fracture of his fibula bone. We are thinking two or three months, that is a really quick assessment,” said Lampard on Godfrey’s injury.
