EVERTON TEAM NEWS FOR BURNLEY TRIP

Michael Keane could be in contention for Everton’s trip to Burnley, but Ashley Young and Seamus Coleman have been ruled out, while Jarrad Branthwaite and Idrissa Gana Gueye will not be available due to suspension.

The Blues head to Turf Moor on Saturday evening (5.30pm GMT), looking to build on an impressive run that has included consecutive wins over Nottingham Forest, Newcastle United and Chelsea.

Centre-back Keane missed out on the matchday squad against Chelsea with a minor knock but resumed full training on Thursday and will be available for selection providing he suffers no reaction ahead of the weekend.

Young was replaced 41 minutes into that 2-0 home victory over Mauricio Pochettino’s side and while the issue he sustained is not deemed serious, the clash with Burnley will come too soon.

Seamus Coleman, who missed the visit of Chelsea having being withdrawn on his comeback appearance during the 3-0 victory over Newcastle, is also not available.

Branthwaite and Gana will miss the game, as they serve one-match suspensions after both picking up their fifth yellow cards of the campaign last time out.

 

There is positive news on Amadou Onana, though, with the Belgium international expected to be fit after overcoming a calf issue to make an appearance off the bench against Chelsea.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, manager Sean Dyche revealed he hopes André Gomes will make the final step of his recovery from a calf injury by completing 90 minutes for Everton Under-21s against West Bromwich Albion on Friday night, but both he and Dele (groin) will not be available for selection.
