Danny Graham: Out of action for around three weeks

Graham was forced off after just 16 minutes of the game at Goodison Park after coming off worst in a challenge with Gareth Barry.

Scans revealed no serious problem but he is likely to miss City's back-to back games with Tottenham in the Premier League and Capital One Cup.

The 28-year-old would have sat out the league game against his parent club Sunderland at the KC Stadium on 2 November anyway but could be fit to return for the trip to Southampton a week later.

"Danny Graham is set to be sidelined for around three weeks with the injury he suffered in Saturday's game at Everton," read a statement on Hull City's official website.

"Although scans have revealed the striker escaped serious injury following a first half challenge by Gareth Barry, severe bone bruising around the knee will keep the on-loan Sunderland man out of action until next month.

"A return to action in our away game against Southampton is a possibility."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
