Richarlison & James Rodriguez updates ahead of Everton’s meeting with Man City

Richarlison & James Rodriguez updates ahead of Everton’s meeting with Man City

Carlo Ancelotti has provided updates on the fitness of a number of his squad’s key performers, ahead of the club’s upcoming showdown with Manchester City.

Everton host City

The Toffees will return to Premier League action tomorrow night, in their final fixture of the calendar year.

Ancelotti and co. will welcome Man City to Goodison Park, for a crucial fixture in the English top-flight’s top-4 race.

As things stand, Everton sit 2nd in the table, just 3 points adrift of Merseyside rivals and early pace-setters Liverpool.

This comes with the Blues having racked up 4 straight league wins over the last couple of weeks, the latest of which came in the form of a 1-0 downing of Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday.

It goes without saying, though, that Manchester City will prove no pushovers for Everton in 24 hours’ time.

The Citizens are unbeaten in their last 10 across all competitions, and sit just 3 points adrift of their upcoming hosts in the Premier League table, with a game in hand.

Toffees far from full strength

As such, Carlo Ancelotti will no doubt be desperate to have as strong a squad as possible at his disposal on Monday night.

Speaking in a pre-City interview this weekend, however, the Everton boss confirmed that he will in fact be unable to call on several of his star performers for the clash.

Richarlison, who picked up a concussion during the club’s League Cup meeting with Manchester United last week, is one who is certain to miss out.

Long-term absentees Allan and Lucas Digne, meanwhile, are also set to play no part versus City, whilst James Rodriguez’s long-standing calf problem will see the Colombian absent, too.
