Sean Dyche addresses six Everton fitness concerns ahead of Manchester United clash



| Last Updated:


Sean Dyche has addressed six Everton fitness concerns ahead of welcoming Manchester United to Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester United‘s visit to Everton is set to be an explosive one, with it being the first fixture back after Sean Dyche‘s club were handed a 10-point dedication for breaking the Premier League‘s profit and sustainability regulations.

Everton fans, who are understandably furious with the decision, have promised to make the atmosphere one of unity amongst the fanbase against the decision.

Meanwhile, on the pitch, Dyche has been updating the press on his squad’s availability, explaining that star midfielder Amadou Onana, who has been linked with a move to United, won’t be available.

“Amadou Onana’s calf, I don’t think will be right,” Dyche explained on Friday afternoon.

Ben [Godfrey], Keano [Michael Keane] and Seamus [Coleman] all had a game in the week. It was good to get them some minutes. Andre [Gomes] is back on the grass, and Dele [Alli] is feeling his way back in.”

Dyche was also questioned on the challenge of facing United, where he had much praise for Ten Hag’s team.

“They are a good outfit,” he said. “There has been noise around them for a while, but they are top of the form table so are playing well in terms of results.”

United have won more points across their last five league games (12) than any other club in the same period and will be looking to add to this to continue to build a run of form with a win against Everton.
