Gomes still sidelined for Toffees

Everton will again be without Andre Gomes for their Premier League clash with Sheffield United at Goodison Park.

The midfielder failed a fitness test ahead of last weekend’s defeat by Bournemouth because of a rib injury and has not yet returned to full training.

Everton provisional squad: Pickford, Coleman, Mina, Keane, Holgate, Digne, Baines, Sidibe, Schneiderlin, Delph, Martina, Davies, Walcott, Sigurdsson, Bernard, Iwobi, Calvert-Lewin, Kean, Tosun, Richarlison.

Sheffield United provisional squad: Henderson, Basham, O’Connell, Egan, Norwood, Stevens, Baldock, Fleck , Lundstram, Robinson, Mousset, McBurnie, McGoldrick, Moore, Freeman, Osborn, Jagielka, Stearman.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
