Crystal Palace star Eberechi Eze suffers a hamstring injury which will keep him out of action for SIX weeks... in what is also a blow to England ahead of Gareth Southgate's squad announcement

Crystal Palace have been dealt a major blow amid fears Eberechi Eze is set to miss six weeks with a hamstring injury, Mail Sport understands.

The news will also arrive as a disappointment to England boss Gareth Southgate ahead of Thursday’s squad announcement for the matches against Australia and Italy.

Eze has had an excellent start to the season and has helped spearhead Palace’s attack in the absence of departed Wilfried Zaha and injured Michael Olise.

The details of how he suffered the injury are unclear - but sources have indicated Eze is set to miss around six weeks after suffering an injury.
