Morgan Schneiderlin and Kevin Mirallas were omitted from Everton’s match-day squad against Watford on Sunday after walking out of a training session 24 hours earlier according to various reports including the guardian, Sky Sports and the telegraph.

Chris Bascombe reports the “the pair were sent home from training on the eve of the Premier League fixture after refusing to apply themselves in a session led by club legend Duncan Ferguson” and “Ferguson was unhappy with the two players’ lack of effort, and upon suggesting the pair either shape or not bother, it appears they took the latter option and returned to the dressing room.”

They were then told to vacate the USM Finch Farm training ground, with Unsworth taking appropriate action.
