The Italian has confirmed that Abdoulaye Doucoure has suffered a small fracture on his foot, and he could be out for a while.
“We are not happy for this. An important player for us but we are not the only club who has to manage injuries.”

Doucoure has been superb for the Toffees since joining from Watford and Ancelotti is hopeful that he can come back before the end of the season.
Another player who is set to miss the tie is James Rodriguez. Gylfi Sigurdsson is also doubtful with an ankle problem.
James out. Will be a check on Sigurdsson (ankle)

Rodriguez was absent for Everton on Monday evening as the Toffees lost 2-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.
The Colombian international last played for Everton in the 2-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield. He is now set to miss four games in a row.
