Defender Seamus Coleman is Everton's only absentee as they belatedly start their campaign at home to newcomers QPR.

The right-back is sidelined with torn ankle ligaments and is likely to be out for several weeks.

With no summer signings to freshen up the squad manager David Moyes is fortunate to have no other players sidelined.

QPR manager Neil Warnock will be without summer signing Kieron Dyer for the trip to Merseyside.

The 31-year-old was carried off in last week's season-opener against Bolton and, while his foot injury is not as serious as first thought, he will miss the Goodison Park clash.

Clint Hill will also miss the match after receiving a red card last weekend, while QPR are still awaiting international clearance for recent signing Bruno Perone. Striker Rob Hulse (knee) and Jamie Mackie (broken leg) both remain out.

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

QPR (from): Kenny, Murphy, Orr, Derry, Hall, Gabbidon, Taarabt, Campbell, Bothroyd, Faurlin, Gorkss, Buzsaky, Connolly, Smith, Helguson, Moen, Agyemang, Shittu, Ephraim, Perone.
