Everton manager David Moyes will make a late decision on Mikel Arteta's availability.

Midfielder Arteta, who missed last week's 1-1 draw at Tottenham with a slight hamstring strain, will undergo a fitness test tomorrow.

Moyes concedes the game comes "too soon" for Jack Rodwell who is closing in on a return after two months out with an ankle injury, meaning he remains on the sidelines alongside Leon Osman (ankle), Marouane Fellaini (hamstring), Ross Barkley (broken leg) and Victor Anichebe (knee).

Tony Pulis hopes Kenwyne Jones and Jermaine Pennant will have recovered from a virus in time to face the Toffees.

Winger Pennant and striker Jones both played in the midweek Carling Cup tie at West Ham despite suffering from flu-like symptoms and were given yesterday off in a bid to speed their recovery.

Striker Mamady Sidibe is Stoke's only long-term absentee, although Matt Etherington, Danny Collins and Ricardo Fuller missed the Upton Park match.

Etherington and Collins are certain to return, while Fuller will be given every chance to prove his fitness.

Everton (from): Howard, Neville, Distin, Heitinga, Baines, Hibbert, Cahill, Arteta, Beckford, Bilyaletdinov, Gueye, Coleman, Yakubu, Mustafi, Silva, Baxter, Wallace, Mucha, Pienaar, Saha.

Stoke (from): Sorensen, Begovic, Huth, Faye, Shawcross, Collins, Wilkinson, Higginbotham, Diao, Wilson, Delap, Whitehead, Whelan, Etherington, Pennant, Walters, Fuller, Jones, Gudjohnsen, Tuncay.
