Everton will be aiming to ramp up their European push on Monday night as they play host to Crystal Palace.

The Blues have ground to make up in the Europa League and boss Carlo Ancelotti is boosted by some key returns.

First team pair James Rodriguez and Jordan Pickford both returned to training over the international break and should return.

However, Tom Davies and Ben Godfrey are both set to miss out after picking knocks on duty with the England U21s.

As for Palace, Roy Hodgson is likely to stick with his tried and trusted on Merseyside with their back five unchanged since February.

Andros Townsend could come back in but James McCarthy and Tyrick Mitchell are set for a place on the bench.

And it’s all set for 6pm start on Monday night at Goodison Park.
