Everton manager Marco Silva reveals Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andre Gomes are available for their match against Cardiff on Saturday after the pair recovered from injuries.

Both Gylfi Sigurdsson[ankle] and Andre Gomes[leg]  sustained injuries during Everton’s goalless draw at Chelsea, and Silva now confirms the pair have been training after missing out for Portugal during the international games.

“Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andre Gomes are okay. They are available for selection this weekend,” Silva told Sky Sports.

“It’s a normal situation for a club like us. I am here to look for each match and understand what will be the best squad list for each match.

“[The players] are working every day. One match we played Michael and Zouma with Jagielka on the bench and the next he is not on the squad list.

“I don’t sit crying every day. Even if one of the best players in our squad [is injured] it is a good moment for another player in the squad to come in.

“They know this moment, the players who aren’t playing, it is important to keep working.”
