Everton should recall defender Yerry Mina for final two fixtures

Everton have just two games remaining in the Premier League this season and it now looks unlikely that they will sneak into the European spots.

They currently sit ninth in the table and are four points adrift of Wolverhampton Wanderers in seventh.

Manager Marco Silva should now have one eye on next season, despite hosting Burnley on Friday night and travelling to Tottenham on the final day of this campaign.

Everton have been handed an injury boost ahead of the Burnley game, as defender Yerry Mina is back in contention.

The Merseyside club confirmed (official Twitter) that the 24-year-old is now in full training before the Burnley match

Mina moved to Everton in the summer for £27.2million (Sky Sports) and it’s not been the dream first season.

He has made just 14 senior appearances across all competitions and struggled due to several injuries.

But the Colombia international is still a brilliant prospect that showed his potential in the 2018 World Cup and Everton should hope he can stay injury free next season.

Mina should be drafted into the side against Burnley for minutes, with loanee Kurt Zouma dropping out despite his impressive campaign.
