Abdoulaye Doucoure could be back and available for selection for Everton for their clash with West Ham United on Sunday according to Carlo Ancelotti.
The Hammers welcome the Toffees to the London Stadium on Sunday. It is a game that will have a huge bearing on the race for the top six.
A win for David Moyes’s men would put West Ham in a great position to qualify for the Europa League at the very worst and keep our Champions League dream alive.
Everton, meanwhile, will be desperate for a win in order to reassert themselves in the race for the top six and maybe even the top four.
Everton injury boost ahead of West Ham clash
The Toffees have been handed some great news. Carlo Ancelotti has suggested that Abdoulaye Doucoure should bet back for Sunday’s clash with the Hammers, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo:
“All the players are available and in condition. We are going to have back, maybe, Doucoure for next week, and the atmosphere is really good around this. After that, there is a result that decides the atmosphere.”
Doucoure is one of the best players Ancelotti has at his disposal at Goodison Park.
So having him back fit will be a big boost for Everton as they look to make up ground on West Ham this weekend.
Hopefully the Hammers players are as up for the game against the Toffees as they were for the Burnley clash on Monday night.
This will be an absolutely massive game for us to win. Three points and we would be in a great position to finish top six.
And Chelsea and Leicester will certainly be looking over their shoulders if West Ham manage to beat Everton.
If Doucoure plays, however, our task will be made that little bit more difficult.
