Everton v Sheffield United: match preview

Carlo Ancelotti insists Everton will fight until the final day to secure
European qualification, and believes three more wins could yet clinch it,
but a major improvement at Goodison Park is required to achieve that aim.
His team have the worst home record of the top 14 clubs in the Premier
League and, as another sterile display on Thursday at Aston Villa
underlined, their lack of creativity without James Rodríguez is glaring.
The Colombia international has a chance of featuring against the league’s
bottom club, who have won only once on the road this season. Andy Hunter
