David Moyes' men are still in with an outside chance of securing a top-four place while Martin Jol's side have won just three games on the road all season

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

EVERTON

Howard
Coleman, Distin, Heitinga, Baines
Pienaar, Osman, Fellaini, Mirallas
Barkley
Jelavic

FULHAM

Schwarzer
Manolev, Senderos, Hangeland, Richardson
Emanuelson, Frimpong, Enoh, Kacaniklic
Ruiz
Berbatov


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.
