Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be on the sidelines for two months with an ankle injury.
The promising 19-year-old had to be taken off after just 12 minutes during Monday's 3-0 win over Southampton and manager Ronald Koeman says he will be out for "seven to eight weeks".
And Everton are also set to be without James McCarthy and Maarten Stekelenburg for Saturday's FA Cup third round tie with Leicester, while Aaron Lennon is doubtful.
Everton are seventh in the table after taking seven points from their festive fixtures and Koeman says he is hoping to add to his squad while the transfer window is open.
"I'm focused on this Saturday but we have other people in the club working on bringing good players in because we want to improve," he added.
Regarding the club potentially moving away from Goodison Park, he added: "That's the reason why I signed a contract with Everton. It's about the project.
"We know we need time to change. That perspective is a new stadium and that's very important for the club. That's how we want to grow."
Koeman also brushed aside speculation linking him with a return to Barcelona, where he starred during his playing days.
"My name is always linked with Barcelona," he said. "I had these kind of questions when I was at Southampton.
"But I am not at Barcelona. I am at Everton."
