  • James McCarthy could make his first-team comeback in Everton’s Premier League clash with Arsenal on Sunday having recovered from his knee injury. Fellow midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin limped off during Thursday’s 2-1 Europa League loss to Lyon but is expected to be able to feature in the contest at Goodison Park this weekend. Wayne Rooney, Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka are set to return to the matchday squad after being rested for the game against the French side, along with Oumar Niasse, who was ineligible on Thursday. Arsene Wenger will make a raft of changes to his Arsenal side – but will be without forward Danny Welbeck. The Gunners won 1-0 at Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday but a host of first-team players did not travel to Serbia and will return at Goodison Park, while Wenger will hope both Laurent Koscielny and Aaron Ramsey will be fit enough to be in contention. The likes of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette will be in line to start ..

  • The Everton fan who appeared to try and strike a Lyon player could land his club a UEFA sanction , while Ashley Williams may face punishment too following the ugly scenes in Thursday's Europa League tie. Williams instigated a fracas in front of the Howard Kendall Gwladys Street End midway through the second half at Goodison Park when he barged into Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes. A melee involving players from both sides ensued and moved to the advertising hoardings, where one Toffees fan, who was holding a child with one arm, pushed Lopes in the head before hitting out at him again. While that was occurring, Williams seemed to raise his hand to Lucas Tousart's face, yet the only initial outcome of the skirmish was a booking for Everton's captain-for-the-night and Lyon's match-winner Bertrand Traore. Speaking after the Toffees' 2-1 loss, Williams told BT Sport 2 of the scuffle: "It's what happens, it's football. It is what it is. "It's hi..
