Everton are reportedly expecting Brazilian forward Richarlison to return to fitness in time for Saturday’s home match against Southampton.

The 21-year-old starred in the Toffees’ 2-2 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend, netting twice on his competitive debut before leaving the field injured.

Richarlison, a £46m signing from Premier League rivals Watford, limped off with four minutes left to play at Molineux.

Sky Sports News claims that the 21-year-old was only suffering from cramp, however, and he is in line to make his first league appearance at Goodison Park in five days’ time.

Fellow newbies Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes, Kurt Zouma and Bernard also also likely to be part of Marco Silva‘s squad to face the Saints.
