Everton will be looking to keep their European hopes burning this weekend as they host Sheffield United on Sunday night.

The Toffees need some luck in the final week but a positive result in this one will edge them back into the Europa League spots.

Despite playing out a drab goalless draw with Aston Villa in midweek boss Carlo Ancelotti is set to make just one change to his line up.

Colombian star James Rodriguez Will come back in following injury with Gylfi Sigurdsson set to drop to the bench.

As for the Blades, interim boss Paul Heckingbottom is without six first team players for the trip to Merseyside after Oli Burke, Sander Berge and Ethan Ampadu joining their growing absentee list.

Ben Osborn and John Lundstrum could come back in as replacements with teenage striker Daniel Jebbison looking for a first ever Premier League start.

And this one wraps up the penultimate weekend of season with a 7pm start at Goodison Park.
