Everton Boss Delivers Team News Update

Carlo Ancelotti has revealed Richarlison is available to make his first Everton appearance since October’s 2-2 draw with Liverpool when the Blues take on Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday (12pm GMT).

Richarlison was substituted 20 minutes from time in Brazil’s 2-0 win over Uruguay on Tuesday following a heavy challenge by Edinson Cavani, but Ancelotti says the forward does not face an injury layoff. Richarlison has missed the Blues’ past three Premier League games through suspension.

Seamus Coleman is out of Sunday's game, however, having sustained an injury in training with the Republic of Ireland.

Ancelotti says all of Everton’s other players who were on international duty - including Allan and James Rodriguez - have returned to the Club unscathed.

The Everton manager added midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin is “in the last part of his recovery” from an Achilles injury and “will be ready in two or three weeks to train and play”

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Ancelotti said: "The players from South America came back yesterday [Thursday].

"They were okay, they tested negative [for COVID-19]. They trained on Friday. It seems they don’t have problems.

"They are quite fit, a little bit tired from the travel, but we have time to recover until Sunday.

"To have one more day to recover is really important, especially for the players who only arrived back [from international duty] on Thursday.

"We have Seamus Coleman unavailable for this game and Gbamin, but the others are in good condition."
