Carlo Ancelotti(Everton’s coach) is hopeful James Rodriguez will be fit for Sunday’s match at Southampton – just 24 hours after saying he expected the playmaker to miss the game
The Everton playmaker who has 5 goals in six games substain an injury in a challenge with Virgil van Dijk in Saturday’s Merseyside derby but resumed partial training on Friday, and if he trains again on Saturday, there is a chance he could play at St Mary’s.
“James is not definitely out,” said Ancelotti. “He had a big haematoma and was not able to train until today. He is much better now and we have confidence that maybe he can play.
Fortunately, I think his recovery was really good and he trained today – he had a partial training session.
“I hope he is going to train tomorrow and we will see if he is in condition to play on Sunday.”
