Meanwhile, Everton manager has to assess the fitness of several players as he has many who are doubtful for this clash.
Ross Barkley was ruled out of the FA Cup clash with Tamworth due to a knee problem, and could make it in time to push for a place in the squad. Tim Cahill also missed the FA Cup game, and remains doubtful for this one. Seamus Coleman, Tony Hibbert, Leon Osman and Jack Rodwell are also concerns.
