Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed in his press conference today that star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin and midfielder Allan are both fit to start against Southampton after the pair recovered from hamstring injuries.
Calvert-Lewin came off the bench and won a penalty, which Gylfi Sigurdsson scored, in their 2-0 victory at Anfield last weekend but Allan was an unused substitute.

He added that Yerry Mina remains out with a calf problem and that Jean-Philippe Gbamin is still some way from returning.
New stadium attraction
Ancelotti also discussed the news that Everton’s proposed new stadium at Barry Dock had received unanimous approval from Liverpool City Council earlier this week.
The proposed ground isn’t due to be ready until the 2024-2025 season, with Ancelott’s current contract ending at the end of the 2023=2024 season.

When asked if he would like to lead the team out at the new stadium he said that “would like to be there at the new stadium”
He continued to say that “To finish the contract in 2024 shows that we have done a good job. For sure I feel good and would like to stay as long as possible.”
This will no doubt be music to the ears of Everton fans as there can be no doubting Ancelotti’s pedigree. Fans will be hoping he can repeat even a small part of some of those successes and if he does and should he remain in charge until the end of his current contract and then renew, he could be leading out one of the best sides into their brand new home.
