Everton will be without midfielder Darron Gibson for the next month after manager David Moyes confirmed that he is suffering from a thigh strain.

Gibson was forced to miss Everton’s 2-1 defeat against Chelsea on Sunday

of January.

The former Manchester United man has been limited to nine league starts this

Gibson’s injury adds to a growing list for Moyes, who is already without Kevin
Mirallas (hamstring), Tony Hibbert (calf) and Seamus Coleman (hamstring).
