Defender John Heitinga is back in contention for Everton after two games out with a hamstring injury.

Midfielders Tim Cahill (foot) and Mikel Arteta (hamstring) are also closer to full match fitness after playing for just over an hour against Wigan last weekend.

Marouane Fellaini and Louis Saha (both ankle) are the only major absentees having been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Micah Richards could return to the City squad.

The full-back has been missing for six weeks with a hamstring injury but manager Roberto Mancini is ready to hand Richards a place on the bench.

Pablo Zabaleta and Nigel de Jong have recovered from minor knocks but Carlos Tevez (hamstring) is not expected to be involved as the Blues close in on a Champions League spot.
