Yerry Mina has been ruled out of Saturday’s clash with Fulham but Phil Jagielka could make his return to action on Saturday. The Colombia international has yet to make his debut and reports earlier this weekend suggested he could be out for some time after suffering a broken metatarsal in training.
Toffees boss Marco Silva has said it is “nothing serious” and the hope is that summer signing Mina – who has been recovering from an injury to his other foot – will be back in training next week.

Seamus Coleman (foot) and Andre Gomes (hamstring) also remain unavailable, but Jagielka could make his return to action after a knee injury having played a full part in training.
The Toffees have lost their last two matches and are winless in four in the Premier League, and Silva has set out his stall for what he wants to see from his team in order to turn around their poor run.
“We didn’t achieve nothing with the result last week but it was a game that will be the image of our team,” said Silva. “I want ambition, good organisation and in some moments managing the game better.
“A great attitude as well and trying to play to win every time has to be our ambition.
“I want to see us playing with confidence tomorrow. We have to put that intensity in the game.”
