Calvert-Lewin absent as injury-hit Everton take on unchanged Brighton |

There may be a few more Stuart Dallas auto-substitutions being processed in Fantasy Premier League this evening, thanks to a bit of unexpected team news in the final match of Gameweek 31.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, owned by over one-third of all FPL managers, is absent from the Everton squad for the 20:15 kick-off, with an abductor problem the reason for his unavailability.

Carlo Ancelotti said ahead of tonight’s game against Brighton and Hove Albion:

In the last training session, Dom had a little problem on his abductor. He came here but this morning he was not comfortable so I prefer to leave him out. It’s the same with Allan and Andre Gomes – they are not 100%. I hope they will be available for the next game.

The Everton boss’s two alterations to his team are enforced, with Calvert-Lewin and Andre Gomes both absent through injury.

Ben Godfrey and Gylfi Sigurdsson come into the side, with the Toffees including six recognised defenders in their line-up.

Jordan Pickford and Allan are still absent.

Earlier in the day, Everton confirmed that Jean-Phillipe Gbamin is set for assessment on a fresh knee injury that he picked up in training.

Hosts Brighton are unchanged for the third game in a row despite losing at Manchester United last weekend.

Adam Webster and Dan Burn are both back from injury and are on the bench at the Amex.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI: Sanchez, White, Dunk, Veltman, Gross, Bissouma, Lallana, Trossard, Moder, Welbeck, Maupay.

Everton XI: Olsen, Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Mina, Digne, James Rodriguez, Godfrey, Davies, Sigurdsson, Richarlison.
