The 24-year-old has had to return to England with the Toffees currently on a mid-season trip to Australia during the Premier League’s break for the World Cup.

According to Liverpool Echo, Davies sustained the injury to his knee whilst in a training session ahead of Everton’s friendly with Celtic in Sydney, and has had to leave the side’s training sessions in Australia.
The £25k-per-week midfielder will ‘likely’ return to training in December following an update provided by the club, but that still means he faces a race to be fit for the Toffees’ Boxing Day Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The injury tops off what has been a frustrating season so far for the Liverpool-born academy product, with Davies having been unable to tie down a regular spot in Lampard’s side so far this campaign, making just seven Premier League appearances, none of which have come in the club’s last three games.
