The latest Everton injury news on Abdoulaye Doucoure, Demarai Gray, Ben Godfrey, Yerry Mina, Fabian Delph and Ben Godfrey ahead of Manchester City clash.
The inconsistent Toffees are in a relegation battle after their latest defeat.
Sitting 16th and four points above the drop zone, things are getting a little tense at Goodison.
Certainly, Lampard couldn’t have asked for a harder fixture than the visit of City - who are licking their wounds after a 3-2 stoppage-time defeat at Tottenham Hotspur.
Everton currently have six players who are on the treatment table and getting some of those back will be crucial if they’re to get anything against Pep Guardiola’s side.
1. Abdoulaye Doucoure - groin
Lampard admitted last week that the Frenchman is making good progress from his setback that he suffered in the 1-0 loss to Aston Villa last month. Doucoure joined in with his team-mates during the warm-up of a training session before Southampton and Lampard revealed he could be available to face City.

2. Demarai Gray - hip
The winger has missed the past two games. Everton have always been confident that Gray’s problem is only minor. Lampard admitted last week that he’s hopeful the ex-Leicester wide man will be fit to face City.

3. Ben Godfrey - quad
The defender left Goodison Park on crutches having sustained his issue in the 4-1 FA Cup defeat of Brentford last month. Lampard revealed Godfrey was “two or three weeks away” when addressing the media before Southampton.

4. Fabian Delph - thigh
The midfielder hasn’t played for Everton for more than two months. Lampard admitted that Delph is on track to be back at a similar time as Godfrey so will be absent against his former club.
