36-Year-Old Defender Everton Premier
Distin suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's match against Manchester United and will have a scan Monday to determine the severity of the injury, the club's official web site reports. "If it's damaged, it will be difficult for him to play again this season, But, if not, maybe a week or 10 days he will be fine," manager Roberto Martinez said after the match.
Antolin Alcaraz, who has battled injuries for much of the season, came on for Distin and will likely take his place in the starting XI for the rest of the season. Phil Jagielka is also a possibility, although he is dealing with an on-going hamstring injury himself.
