James Tarkowski in line for Burnley return against Everton

Burnley are set to have the fit-again James Tarkowski back involved on Saturday when they take on Everton at Turf Moor.

The defender, sidelined for the last four matches, stepped up his recovery from a groin problem by playing the full duration of a behind-closed-doors game against Preston on Tuesday.

It remains to be seen if there is any involvement for goalkeeper Tom Heaton, who also played for the entirety of the Preston match – the goalkeeper has been out since September, when he dislocated his shoulder. It is expected Scott Arfield (calf) will still be unavailable.

On-loan Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala is unlikely to play for Everton again this season because of the knee injury he sustained last month.

Fellow defenders Seamus Coleman (thigh), Leighton Baines (ankle) and Phil Jagielka are all expected to return to the squad.

However, the game arrives too soon for centre-back Ramiro Funes Mori, who is set to play for the under-23s again as he builds up his fitness after spending 10 months out with a knee injury.
