FPL managers take note: Everton handed Digne & Rodriguez boosts

Cup clash

The Blues are set to get their FA Cup campaign underway tomorrow afternoon.

Everton will welcome Championship outfit Rotherham to Goodison Park, for a 3rd-round tie.

Ancelotti’s outfit enter proceedings in search of a bounce-back result, having seen a positive recent spell of Premier League form brought to an end last time out.

On the back of 4 straight wins in the English top-flight, a run which saw the Merseysiders reestablish themselves firmly amongst the top-4 race, they were brought crashing back down to earth last weekend, in a 1-0 defeat at home to West Ham.

A meeting with struggling Rotherham, though, represents the ideal opportunity for Everton to get things back on track.

The Millers have endured a campaign to forget to date, sitting 2nd-bottom of the Championship table, with just 4 wins to their name all season.

James boost

As such, as outlined above, ahead of his side’s FA Cup campaign getting underway, Carlo Ancelotti this evening provided fitness updates on a number of Everton’s stars.

First was an insight into those who are set to play no part on Saturday, as the Toffees boss attempts to rotate his squad amid the hectic festive fixture list:

‘The players not available for [the FA Cup] are Richarlison, Jonjo Kenny, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Allan, Fabian Delph, Gbamin and Pickford.’

In a major boost, though, Ancelotti also went on to confirm that James Rodriguez, Lucas Digne and Alex Iwobi, all of whom have spent time on the sidelines of late, are in line to return versus Rotherham.

‘Available – James back, Digne back, Iwobi back.’

When pressed further on Digne’s remarkable recovery, the Italian tactician added:

‘He’s fit, his recovery was really fast. The medical staff and him, I think they did a fantastic job. He trained all week with us and he’s fit, in good condition, he can play tomorrow.’
