Everton boost as Yannick Bolasie back in training after knee injury

Yannick Bolasie trained with his Everton teammates on Wednesday as the winger stepped up his rehabilitation from a long-term knee injury.

The session at Finch Farm, ahead of Thursday's Europa League clash with Atalanta, saw Bolasie training with the senior squad for the first time since sustaining anterior cruciate ligament damage to his right knee on Dec. 4 last year.

Club captain Phil Jagielka and fellow defender Mason Holgate were notable absentees from the session, along with midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.

Jagielka, 35, played the whole of Saturday's 2-2 Premier League draw at Crystal Palace, while Holgate was missing from the squad. Schneiderlin, suspended for Thursday's match, was substituted at half-time.

He was red carded in the last Europa League outing, the 3-0 loss at Lyon on Nov. 2, when it was confirmed Everton, who are bottom of Group E, would not be able to qualify for the next round.

Atalanta's visit to Goodison Park is set to be the sixth game of David Unsworth's stint as Everton caretaker boss.
