Michael Keane and Donny van de Beek back for Everton

Relegation-threatened Everton have centre-back Michael Keane and midfielder Donny van de Beek available for their crucial final home match of the season against Crystal Palace.

Manager Frank Lampard is also hopeful defender Ben Godfrey, who has been out for a month with a thigh problem, could also rejoin the squad.

Centre-back Jarrad Branthwaite and striker Salomon Rondon are suspended while Lampard is still without midfielder Fabian Delph and defender Yerry Mina.

Crystal Palace will remain without Michael Olise for the trip to Goodison Park.

The France Under-20s international missed last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Aston Villa with a minor foot injury that boss Patrick Vieira has admitted is not worth risking during the final two games of the season.

Nathan Ferguson, James Tomkins and James McArthur are also not fit enough to be in contention.

Everton provisional squad: Pickford, Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Mykolenko, Doucoure, Gomes, Gordon, Iwobi, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Begovic, Kenny, Godfrey, Welch, Allan, Van de Beek, Davies, Alli, Gray, Price.

Crystal Palace provisional squad: Guaita, Clyne, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell, Gallagher, Kouyate, Schlupp, Ayew, Mateta, Zaha, Butland, Ward, Hughes, Milivojevic, Eze, Olise, Edouard, Benteke, Matthews, Adaramola, Kelly, Riedewald, Rak-Sakyi.
