Everton have been handed a boost ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash with West Ham United as three players have returned to full training.
Alex Iwobi, who pulled out of the Nigeria national team squad for this month’s games against Central African Republic after picking up an injury, is now back to training.
The 25-year-old missed the Toffees’ 1-1 draw with Manchester United because of the ailment, which was the first time the winger has been ruled out from squad in the 2021/22 season.
Speaking to Everton’s official webpage Rafael Benitez has provided fitness update on his team, confirming that 3 players will be available.
“The international break is an opportunity to bring back players,” said Benitez.
“Alex Iwobi was training and [so were] Digne and Coleman – that is good news for us – they have started training with the team.”
However, it’s still unclear whether Iwobi will be in the starting XI in the West Ham clash, after his recovery.
