QPR - Everton Preview: Hughes under pressure to get first win

The struggling Londoners face a tough challenge against David Moyes' Merseyside club who have started the season brightly, but may be missing their talisman Marouane Fellaini

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

QPR

Julio Cesar
Bosingwa, Ferdinand, M'Bia, Fabio
Granero, Diakite, Park
Wright-Phillips, Zamora, Taarabt
EVERTON

Howard
Coleman, Heitinga, Jagielka, Baines
Osman, Neville, Gibson, Pienaar
Mirallas, Jelavic

Samba Diakite will return for the hosts after serving a one-match ban for his sending off against West Ham on October 2.

Manchester United loanee Fabio (hamstring) is due to return at left-back, while Clint Hill (head) is edging closer to match fitness in time for the Sunday afternoon clash.

Andy Johnson (knee) is definitely out for the hosts, with a return date scheduled for March of next year.

Marouane Fellaini (knee) is unlikely to play for the visitors, but could make a swift comeback in spite of reports suggesting he could face weeks on the sidelines.

The imposing attacking midfielder missed both of Belgium's recent World Cup qualifying matches, but Moyes will be hoping he can recover in time.

Darron Gibson (groin) and Tony Hibbert (calf) are set for Toffees comebacks after missing recent games.

  DID YOU KNOW

  • The last meeting between the two sides ended in a 1-1 draw in March this year.
  • Sunday's game will be David Moyes' 200th away match as Everton manager.
  • If Tim Howard (pictured) and/or Phil Neville play and win, they will be the first Everton players to have started and won 100 Premier League matches.
  • Mark Hughes played 22 times for Everton in 2000.
  • Hughes was the first ever player to score against Everton for a domestic and a European team: Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
  • Due to Brad Friedel being dropped for Tottenham recently, Tim Howard now holds the best current record for successive Premier League appearances in the Premier League, with 190 games.
