Everton boss Rafa Benitez insists he's counting on James Rodriguez.
The midfielder was again missing for last night's 3-0 defeat at Aston Villa.
Benitez later said: "For this game, I was a bit worried about a muscle issue. He had a little problem and we decided that we have to wait, so it was not available. That's all.
"We will see if he is fit for the next game and then we will decide."
James hasn't played senior football - at any level - since May 16 against Sheffield United.
