Everton manager Benitez hopeful Doucoure makes Brentford trip

Everton manager Rafa Benitez hopes Abdoulaye Doucoure will make Sunday's trip to Brentford.

French midfielder Doucoure has missed four matches with a broken metatarsal but returned to training this week.

"He has been training today so it is one player who maybe could be available. I think Doucoure has a chance," said the Everton manager.

"Because it is a metatarsal injury if he is fine, he is fine. It is not like a muscle problem where we have to be careful.

"We have to be sure close to the game everything has healed and the player is confident.

"If it is like that it is always a risk when you come back from injury but not a massive risk."
