Everton defender Tony Hibbert (groin) is fit.

Manager David Moyes will consider whether to recall the long-serving full-back and reshuffle his back line or stick with Shane Duffy in the continued absence of Sylvain Distin (hamstring) and Phil Jagielka (knee).

Diniyar Bilyaletdinov drops out from the last squad with a move to Spartak Moscow imminent while Seamus Coleman (thigh), Leon Osman (knee) and Jack Rodwell (hamstring) are still missing.

Fulham will again be without Mousa Dembele when they travel to Merseyside.

The Belgium international missed last week's defeat of Newcastle with a hip injury and dropped out of training on Thursday, meaning he will not make the trip to Goodison Park.

Fellow attacker Orlando Sa (hamstring) is also out and is joined on the sidelines by Mark Schwarzer (spine) and Zdenek Grygera (knee). Steve Sidwell is available despite coming off injured against Newcastle.

Everton (from): Howard, Mucha, Neville, Hibbert, Duffy, Heitinga, Baines, Gibson, Cahill, Drenthe, Fellaini, Saha, Donovan, Anichebe, Stracqualursi, McFadden, Gueye, Vellios.

Fulham (from): Stockdale, Etheridge, Hangeland, Senderos, Riise, Kelly, Frei, Sidwell, Murphy, Etuhu, Dempsey, Ruiz, Davies, Duff, Hughes, Baird, Kasami, Zamora, Johnson.
