Although Phil Jagielka returned to action after coming off the bench in Everton's FA Cup tie with Sunderland, David Moyes is likely to stick with the back line which has been serving him well in recent weeks.

The Toffees have recently been without midfield trio Seamus Coleman (thigh), Jack Rodwell (hamstring) and Royston Drenthe, but all three are close to a return and could be in contention for a place on the bench.

Roy Hodgson is also without key midfielders with Jerome Thomas, Graham Dorran (both hamstring) and James Morrison (knee ligament) all unavailable.

This is on top of the extended lay off of Steven Reid (ankle) and Zolton Gera (knee) who are unlikely to feature again this season.
