Phil Neville (knee) is the lone absentee from an otherwise full-strength Everton squad as David Moyes prepares to take charge of his final match at Goodison Park after he was chosen to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United on Thursday.

The 51-year is likely to stick with the same side that drew 0-0 with Liverpool at Anfield last Sunday for his penultimate game as Toffees boss, meaning Victor Anichebe should retain his place in attack ahead of Nikica Jelavic.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce will once again be unable to call upon the services of defensive duo George McCartney (knee) and James Tomkins (calf), although the Hammers otherwise have a clean bill of health.

Joe Cole and Mark Noble are both vying for spots in midfield after returning to full fitness with Gary O'Neill set to make way after starting the previous 10 games in succession.

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Everton haven't managed a victory in their penultimate match of the season since a 3-1 win vs West Ham in 2009.

  • Should he score on Saturday, top scorer Marouane Fellaini (pictured right) would reach 12 Premier League goals for the season - the same total he managed to accumulate across the last three campaigns.

  • Soon-to-depart manager David Moyes holds a 44% win percentage over West Ham in the Premier League and boasts a 47% overall success rate against Sam Allardyce.
  • West Ham have failed to win 12 of their last 13 Premier League games away from Upton Park. 

  • Andy Carroll has found the net with a third of his shots on goal this season (seven from 21).
  • The Hammers haven't tasted success at Goodison Park since beating the hosts 2-1 in December 2005.
  • When it comes to conceding in the opening 15 minutes of games this term Everton and West Ham (both 11) are joint leaders in the top-flight.
