Everton Team News For Spurs Clash

Sean Dyche has confirmed he has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Everton's Premier League clash with Tottenham on Monday night (8pm BST). 

The Blues boss also revealed striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is "back out on the grass" training and is progressing well from his injury but is yet to join his teammates in full sessions.

A host of Blues players were involved in international action during the break, and all came through their respective fixtures unscathed, including Nathan Patterson for Scotland.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference at Finch Farm on Friday, Dyche said: "Some have had more minutes than others. The group who have been left behind have had a few days off, but they have done some work as well. 

"The group look fresh in the way they have trained in the last few days. I'm pleased, overall. Nothing major has come back on the injury front which is helpful. Particularly with Amadou (Onana) playing both games. It's so far, so good. 

"A couple of them are back in today, including Alex (Iwobi)."

On Calvert-Lewin, Dyche added: "He hasn't trained with the group but is back on the grass again. He has been making progress, which is good. He had a slight niggle in a different area but he is making very good progress so we are happy with that." 

Patterson - who has been sidelined since suffering a knee injury against Brighton at the start of the year - featured from the bench in both of Scotland's EURO 2024 qualifying wins against Cyprus and Spain, and Dyche hasn't ruled out the defender playing a role on Monday night.  

"He's still a young player, developing," said the boss. "There is still more to come from him but he got injured pretty quickly. He's now over that, which is good. 

"He has played a bit earlier in the season here, so there is a lot of development in him. But he is going about it the right way now he is fit. It was a fantastic win for Scotland the other night [against Spain], and he got a little piece of it as well which is great for him."
