Everton v C Palace preview

Everton's clash with Crystal Palace on Wednesday night may be a game too soon for Everton captain Phil Jagielka.

The defender is back training with the squad after a hamstring injury that has kept him out for nearly two months and could feature in Sunday's clash with Manchester United.

Manager Roberto Martinez is hopeful that midfielders Steven Pienaar and Darron Gibson (both knee) will be available before the end of the season.

Kagisho Dikgacoi and Yannick Bolasie will face late fitness tests ahead of Crystal Palace's Premier League trip to Goodison.

South Africa midfielder Dikgacoi and Democratic Republic of Congo winger Bolasie are both aiming to beat knocks in time to face Roberto Martinez's men at Goodison Park.

Palace boss Tony Pulis could turn to Blackpool loanee Tom Ince if Bolasie loses his fitness race.
