Frank Lampard confirmed Demarai Gray suffered a hip injury in Everton’s loss to Newcastle United.

The winger was withdrawn in the 25th minute after pulling up.

He was replaced by Dele Alli, who struggled on his debut as the Toffees fell to a 3-1 loss at St James’ Park in Lampard’s first Premier League game as boss.

Meanwhile, Yerry Mina was taken off 10 minutes after Gray with a quad issue.

Lampard is hoping that Gray’s issue won’t be too serious ahead of a huge clash with relegation rivals Leeds United on Saturday.

He told Everton’s website: “Demarai was a hip.

We are hoping with him it’s not too bad. It’s something that he’s had before that he got over quite quickly but, with Yerry, we’ll have to assess him over the next few days.”
