Ronald Koeman is going to be sweating the fitness of Morgan Schneiderlin for today’s game as Everton host Leicester City at Goodison Park. The midfielder’s absence has greatly affected the Blues’ composure in the middle of the park and not having him available coincided with a couple of rough performances at Liverpool and Manchester United.

The Frenchman will face a late fitness test just before the game to determine if he is good to go. Everton are already missing Seamus Coleman, Ramiro Funes Mori and Yannick Bolasie for the rest of this season. Aaron Lennon is recovering from a knock and might be in the matchday squad, but there is no date of return noted for midfielders James McCarthy and Muhamed Besic.

For visitors Leicester, captain Wes Morgan practiced this week but is not ready to play yet, especially with the big Champions League quarter final coming up midweek. Nampalys Mendy is still struggling with an ankle injury while Molla Wague had dislocated his shoulder on debut in February, and is still out.
