RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McCarthy is expected to be out three weeks after tearing a hamstring in training, reports the Daily Mail.

The midfielder just recently returned to action after a hernia operation, but will again turn his attention to recovery. He has struggled to regain full fitness and manager Ronald Koeman has criticized Ireland manager Martin O'Neill for using the player so soon after the hernia surgery, which he feels has contributed to the player's string of injuries.

McCarthy has began running outside as he attempts to return from groin surgery.

McCarthy's initial injury outlook was three weeks, which means he is on track to return to training during that allotted time. Gareth Barry and Idrissa Gueye are well cemented as Everton's current centre midfielders. Upon McCarthy's return, he will most likely have to wait to see starting minutes.

Celtic have ignited an effort to bring McCarthy to the club on loan after securing entry into the Champions League, according to the Daily Mail.
