Everton captain Phil Neville and midfielder Tim Cahill have a chance of returning to face the Cottagers.

Neville missed the last match against Birmingham with a hamstring injury while Cahill has not played since February 26 because of a foot problem.

Mikel Arteta (hamstring) is still missing while fellow midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Forward Victor Anichebe should also be in the squad after recovering from a knock.

Fulham could be faced with a midfield dilemma.

Dickson Etuhu is a doubt with a hamstring strain, while the game comes too soon for Steve Sidwell (knee), meaning manager Mark Hughes may need to find a new partner for Danny Murphy in the middle of the park.

Bobby Zamora will continue his comeback from the bench, but Philippe Senderos has suffered another setback in his recovery from a serious Achilles injury after complaining yet again about tightness in his hamstrings.

Everton (from): Howard, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Neville, Coleman, Rodwell, Osman, Bilyaletdinov, Cahill, Saha, Beckford, Gueye, Heitinga, Hibbert, Anichebe, Baxter, Duffy, Mucha.

Fulham (from): Schwarzer, Stockdale, Pantsil, Hangeland, Hughes, Baird, Briggs, Etuhu, Davies, Murphy, Duff, Dempsey, Gudjohnsen, Kakuta, Gera, Dembele, Salcido, Greening, Johnson, Zamora, Halliche.
