To ascertain the severity of the injury he sustained in Everton's 3-1 loss to Manchester United in their Emirates FA Cup match on Friday night, Alex Iwobi will have a scan done.
In the second half, a terrible tackle by Tyrell Malacia caused Iwobi to need to be carried off the field.
The Nigerian international is currently anticipated to sit out for an extended period of time.
But Lampard is optimistic that the damage is not too severe and anticipates seeing his star player play again soon.
“We hope it’s not too serious." It looks like an ankle ligament injury. "He will have a scan tomorrow (today) to confirm,” the former England international told the club’s official website.
Iwobi has been one of the key stars for Everton this season.
His potential absence will be a major blow for the Toffees, who are still in a relegation fight.
