Everton are likely to be without Victor Anichebe (hamstring) and Darron Gibson (hip) after both limped off against Sunderland last Saturday. Phil Jagielka (ankle) missed Everton's defeat at the Stadium of Light therefore Jonny Heitinga should keep his place at centre-back. Tony Hibbert could return from a long-term calf injury.

Fulham will have to make do without midfielder Steve Sidwell for the rest of the season after he received a red card against Arsenal last Saturday and will now serve a four-match suspension.

Missing for Martin Jol's side are Damien Duff (groin), Askhan Dejagah (ankle) and Mahamadou Diarra (knee), while Emmanuel Frimpong could be Sidwell's replacement in central midfield.

  • The Toffees have won ten home matches this season. The same number as Arsenal and Chelsea and one more than Tottenham.
  • Everton have kept a clean sheet in their last three home matches.
  • Fulham have never won a game at Goodison Park, losing 20 of their 24 visits.
  • Fulham have not won in their last four Premier League outings.
  • Fulham have recovered the fewest number of points (five) from losing positions this season.
  • Goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer became the first overseas player to reach 500 Premier League appearances on Saturday.
