‘We have Calvert-Lewin back for the game, unfortunately we have some players out, like (Jean-Philippe) Gbamin, Allan, (Fabian) Delph, (Lucas) Digne, (Alex) Iwobi and (Niels) Nkounkou,’ Ancelotti said.

‘But the others are in good condition, ready to play this game and ready to compete in this competition because it is important. The FA Cup for us is very important.’ 

Everton face a busy schedule with two home Premier League games in four days next week, against Leicester on Wednesday and Newcastle on Saturday.

‘I want to put out the best line-up as possible against Sheffield (Wednesday) because we want to move on this competition and I think Dominic can start because he trained well,’ Ancelotti added.

The Everton boss said that Iwobi and Digne were both hoping to return to contention for the visit of Leicester.
