James Rodriguez could return for Everton against Sheffield United

Everton playmaker James Rodriguez is set to be fit for the visit of Sheffield United.

The Colombia international trained on Friday having missed three matches with a calf problem.

However, compatriot Yerry Mina has not recovered from the adductor injury which has sidelined him for two games.

Blades midfielder Sander Berge has suffered another injury and will not be risked during what remains of the season.

The 23-year-old has only recently returned to action after being out for more than four months with a hamstring injury, although his latest problem is not related to that issue.

Oliver Burke has fractured a bone in his foot and will also miss the Blades’ last three matches, while Ethan Ampadu (hip) and long-term absentee Jack O’Connell (knee) are other who are unlikely to be risked. Oli McBurnie (foot) and Billy Sharp (thigh) remain out.

Everton provisional squad: Pickford, Holgate, Keane, Godfrey, Digne, Doucoure, Allan, Gomes, Sigurdsson, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Olsen, Virginia, Coleman, Nkounkou, Delph, Davies, King, Iwobi, Bernard.

Sheffield United provisional squad: Ramsdale, Foderingham, Baldock, Stevens, Lowe, Egan, Jagielka, Basham, Bryan, Bogle, Fleck, Lundstram,
Norwood, Osborn, Ndiaye, Mousset, McGoldrick, Brewster.
