Manager David Moyes named the Nigerian in his travelling party after watching the striker mark his comeback on Tuesday night with a goal after only 31 seconds in the reserves' 3-0 victory against Burnley.

Phil Jagielka, Mikel Arteta and Victor Anichebe remain sidelined through injury while new man Diniyar Bilyaletdinov is currently ineligible.

Kick-off is at 5pm BST.

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