Carlo Ancelotti Everton

Everton are set to again be without Jordan Pickford as they prepare to face Albion at the Amex on Monday night. While the goalkeeper has resumed training, Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti has said “we don’t want to take a risk”. Pickford has sat out Everton’s last two games plus England’s World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland due to an abdominal injury.

Carlo Ancelotti said: “Jordan Pickford started training this week but I think he’s not 100 per cent and we don’t want to take a risk for this game.”

Andre Gomes has been ruled out of the clash with the Seagulls after sustaining a hamstring issue in Monday’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.

Carlo Ancelotti said: “He started training individually today, he will not be able to play on Monday, and he will be able for the next game, against Tottenham (four days later).

Gomes’ fellow midfielder Allan could return to action after missing the Palace match through injury, and winger Alex Iwobi is available again having also been sidelined for that contest. Midfielders Abdoulaye Doucoure and Fabian Delph and winger Bernard continue with their recoveries. Ancelotti said he was confident Doucoure, who has a foot problem, would play again this season.

Carlo Ancelotti said: “He will play again. He had a scan last week, everything was OK. He is going to have a next scan in three weeks and if the scan will be OK, he can start to train.”
