However, Everton saw Yerry Mina (calf) and goalscorer Vitalii Mykolenko (cramp) both limp off at the King Power Stadium.

Lampard admits Mina will be absent against Watford - but Mykolenko should be fine.

The Goodison Park boss said: “Myko is good. Cramp in the calves so he’ll be good.

“Yerry has a small injury in his calf so he won’t be playing the next game.”

Lampard added that Mina will also be absent for this Sunday’s clash against Brentford and next week’s visit of Crystal Palace - both at Goodison.

“We’re probably looking towards the last game Yerry could be in contention for,” he said.

Van de Beek and Godfrey latest

Donny van de Beek has missed Everton’s past three games with a groin issue.

Lampard revealed that the on-loan Manchester United midfielder is still not ready to feature, although there’s some hope he will be back for Brentford on Sunday.

He said: “Donny is not ready. We’re hoping he’ll be ready for next week’s games, potentially the weekend.”

Ben Godfrey has been absent for Everton’s previous three games after pulling up in the warm-up before the Merseyside derby loss to Liverpool on 24 April.

Lampard previously revealed that the plan was for the defender to return to full training this week - and that remains the case.

“Ben is working with every ounce of sweat in his body to be part of the run-in,” added Lampard.

“That’s the sort of attitude we need.”
