Ancelotti Provides Team News Update Ahead Of Derby Clash

Blues boss gives injury latest in evertontv interview.

Carlo Ancelotti has revealed Allan, Andre Gomes and Seamus Coleman have returned to training and are expected to be available for Saturday’s Merseyside derby at Goodison Park (12.30pm).

The Blues have also been boosted by Richarlison’s fitness after the attacker played 90 minutes for Brazil against Peru on Tuesday night – the 23-year-old scored in a 4-2 victory for the five-time world champions.

Yerry Mina sat out Colombia’s 2-2 draw with Chile on Tuesday as a precaution after feeling discomfort in his thigh and his availability for the Liverpool clash will be assessed by Everton medical staff upon his return to USM Finch Farm.

Centre-back pair Mason Holgate and Jarrad Branthwaite remain sidelined but are progressing well in their recoveries.

Ancelotti added Jean-Philippe Gbamin could be ready to return to action by late-November, while Cenk Tosun is training individually at the Blues’ training complex.

Speaking to evertontv, Ancelotti said: “Andre Gomes is available for Saturday, no problem.

“Allan started to train with the team this week. If nothing happens in the next few days he will be available to play against Liverpool.

“I think Seamus is going to be good, too, because he started to train with us on Monday.

"Holgate and Branthwaite are working individually. Branthwaite is closer [to returning].

“They have no problems [in their recovery programmes] but we have to wait a little bit.

“Gbamin is working individually, he is not here [at USM Finch Farm] yet.

“I think he is going to be here in 15 days and start to work apart from the team in the beginning, and then with the team.

“At the end of the November, I think he can be fit to play.”


Ancelotti added new signing Ben Godfrey could make his Everton debut in Saturday’s derby showdown.

The Blues head into the game with a perfect record so far in 2020/21, having recorded seven successive victories.

Godfrey joined Everton from Norwich City on transfer deadline day and Ancelotti explained how his range of attributes will complement the talented defenders in his squad.

The centre-back will train with his new teammates for the first time this week having been away with England Under-21s on international duty – Godfrey played the full game as the young Lions beat Turkey 2-1 on Tuesday to secure a spot at next year’s European U21 Championship.

“Godfrey is a a really talented player,” Ancelotti said.

“He is really fast, very quick. He has different characteristics from the centre-backs we have in this moment. 

“He is a complete defender, fast, good with his head and good with the ball. He has all the quality to be a really good centre-back.

"He has experience in the Premier League. He was really happy to come here.

“I think he will be a good signing, not only for the present because I think he is ready to play in the Premier League, but also for the future of the Club.

“If he is fit, he is going to be in competition with the others [for the game against Liverpool].”
