Everton boss David Moyes is likely to be without Darron Gibson, Jack Rodwell and Seamus Coleman for tonight's clash with Arsenal.
All three face late fitness tests ahead of the clash with a resurgent Arsenal side who could move to third in the table if they pick up a win.
Gibson is still struggling with a knee problem, while fellow midfielder Rodwell has suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury and may not be risked, winger Coleman picked up a knock in the FA Cup draw with Sunderland on Saturday and is unlikely to feature.
South African Steven Pienaar will be available again after missing out against Sunderland because he was cup tied.
Arsenal will have Thomas Vermaelen available at after the defender recovered from a calf injury, midfielder Abou Diaby has recovered from a hamstring injury but will not be involved in the first team at Goodison Park despite playing 60 minutes for the reserves.
