​Everton coach Ancelotti hopes number of players return for crunch Tottenham clash

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is hopeful of getting some injured players back as they prepare to face Tottenham at the weekend.

The Toffees could only manage a draw against Brighton on Monday night, as their hopes of qualifying for Europe continue to sutter.

Center back Yerry Mina could be out for a few weeks with a muscle injury as he came off in the game against Brighton after 58 minutes.

However, Jordan Pickford, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Allan, Andre Gomes and Joshua King could be back for the Spurs game on Friday.

Ancelotti said post-game, per the club website: "Yerry Mina had a muscle problem on his adductor and I don't think he will be available for a few weeks.

"The others, I hope to recover.

"For sure, Pickford will be available, I hope Allan and Gomes will be available, Calvert-Lewin and Joshua King."
