Everton vs Crystal Palace - Toffees pair set for debuts while McCarthy back in contention

Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes and James McCarthy could all be involved in some capacity as cwelcome Crystal Palace to Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

Defender Mina and midfielder Gomes have yet to make their Toffees debuts following their deadline-day moves from Barcelona due to respective foot and hamstring injuries, but both have returned to full training.

So, too, has McCarthy, who has been sidelined since suffering a horrific double leg break in January, but fellow midfielder Idrissa Gueye is a doubt after injuring his ankle while on Senegal duty during the international break.

Key forward Wilfried Zaha faces a late fitness test on an adductor injury before Palace select their XI.

Max Meyer and Alexander Sorloth will similarly be given time to recover from viral infections.

Christian Benteke is recovering from surgery on his knee, Joel Ward has a muscular injury, and Scott Dann and Connor Wickham are short of match fitness following long-term knee injuries.
