The Frenchman's arrival from Portsmouth will free up Phil Neville to revert to a midfield role as the team aim to get back on track after a poor start to the season.

Diniyar Bilyaletdinov could also secure a place in the squad along with Aiyegbeni Yakubu who played the last 14 minutes of the Europa League play-off match against Sigma Olomouc on Thursday after recovering from a ruptured Achilles. Phil Jagielka, Mikel Arteta and Victor Anichebe remain sidelined through injury.

Toffees (from): Howard, Nash, Hibbert, Baines, Yobo, Distin, Duffy, Neville, Rodwell, Osman, Fellaini, Pienaar, Cahill, Gosling, Saha, Yakubu, Vaughan, Jo, Wallace, Baxter, Turner, Bilyaletdinov.
