He’s been joining the group and from a medical point of view I don’t think there is a concern or worry.”Everton are also set to welcome back Seamus Coleman.The full-back has not featured for the club since the 3-1 win over Chelsea in September due to a hamstring injury but played for the Republic of Ireland on Sunday.Tyias Browning has impressed for Everton in Coleman’s absence, but he is likely to make way against United.
