Everton manager Sam Allardyce has said he is optimistic that club record signing Gylfi Sigurdsson will be back before the end of the season.
On Wednesday, the club suggested in a statement that the Iceland international midfielder's knee injury would sideline him for six to eight weeks.
However, Allardyce was unhappy with that estimate.
"Someone gave out the wrong statement. It can be less than that. Whoever gave that statement out is going to get a b--------g today, so well done," he said.
