Jagielka set for Everton recall

Everton

Everton boss Ronald Koeman is considering dropping Ashley Williams for Sunday's trip to Brighton, with Phil Jagielka fit again.

Club captain Jagielka is available once more after missing nearly a month with a hamstring problem and could replace Williams, whose shaky form continued with a crucial mistake for Wales on Monday.

There is positive news on James McCarthy as he closes in on a return from a knee injury, with Everton set to give him a run out for the Under-23s next Tuesday before welcoming back to the first-team fold.

Boss Ronald Koeman is still without Seamus Coleman, Ramiro Funes Mori, Ross Barkley, Aaron Lennon and Yannick Bolasie due to long-term injuries, but was relieved to see all those players who went out on international duty return unscathed.

Provisional squad: Pickford, Stekelenburg, Williams, Keane, Jagielka, Holgate, Martina, Kenny, Baines, Schneiderlin, Gueye, Besic, Klaassen, Sigurdsson, Rooney, Davies, Vlasic, Lookman, Mirallas, Sandro, Calvert-Lewin, Niasse.
