Everton vs Tottenham: Team news

Everton duo James Rodriguez and Jordan Pickford will face late fitness tests ahead of the visit of Tottenham.

The Colombia international was taken off with a tight calf during Saturday’s 3-3 draw at Manchester United, the second successive match England’s goalkeeper missed due to a rib injury.

Allan has returned to training after a hamstring injury which has sidelined him for almost two months but will not be available until the weekend, while new signing Josh King is cup-tied.

Dele Alli could return to the Tottenham bench.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who was keen to leave the club in January, has not played since the third-round win at Marine at the start of last month due to a tendon injury.

Serge Aurier is a doubt due to a calf problem while Sergio Reguilon and Giovani Lo Celso are definitely out.
