Everton Team News For Wolves

A late call will be made on Abdoulaye Doucoure's availability for Saturday's trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Everton manager Sean Dyche revealing the midfielder is "touch and go" for the Molineux clash (3pm GMT).

Meanwhile, Idrissa Gana Gueye and Ashley Young will not feature in the West Midlands as they continue to progress from their respective injuries.

Doucoure has been out with a hamstring problem since going off at half-time in the 2-0 victory at Burnley on 16 December.

In his pre-match press conference on Thursday afternoon, Dyche confirmed Everton's top scorer this season is "desperate to play" at Wolves but a final decision is set to be made on Friday.

"Doucs is one of those touch and go ones: the risk-and-reward scenarios," said the Blues boss. "He's a super-fit fella and is desperate to play but we might have to make a judgement call by tomorrow afternoon."

Gana was forced off with a calf injury in last weekend's narrow 2-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur and, while Dyche revealed "the early signs are better than first thought", the Senegal international will not play at Molineux.

Young, who has not featured since coming off in the 2-0 victory over Chelsea on 10 December, is back out on the grass with the Men's Senior Team but is not yet available for selection.

Dyche also confirmed James Tarkowski and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are both fit despite missing training on Thursday with minor knocks from the previous night's match against Manchester City at Goodison Park.

"Idrissa's got a calf injury. He's certainly not for this weekend and we'll see how that improves," added Dyche. "The early signs are better than first thought but we'll have to wait and see.

"[Young] is still a bit away after a few weeks but he's a super-fit fella so we're hopeful he'll return pretty quickly."
