Team news and stats ahead of Everton vs Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday (kick-off 12.30pm).
Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti expects Yerry Mina and Lucas Digne to be fit for his table-topping side's hotly-anticipated Merseyside derby against Liverpool.
Centre-half Mina missed Colombia's match in Chile in midweek with a thigh niggle, but he was back in training on Friday, meaning new arrival Ben Godfrey may have to wait for his chance. Full-back Digne had an injury scare with France, but also looks ready.
Allan and Andre Gomes are back to challenge for midfield places, but Mason Holgate, Jonjoe Kenny, Jarrad Branthwaite and Jean-Philippe Gbamin remain on the sidelines.
