Everton v Reading preview
Marouane Fellaini could be welcomed back into the Everton side for their home date with Reading after sitting out a midweek FA Cup fifth round replay victory over Oldham Athletic.
Victor Anichebe is another pushing for a recall, but his fitness will be assessed closer to kick-off after sitting out the Toffees' last two fixtures through injury.
Tony Hibbert is the only long-term absentee, as he continues his rehabilitation from calf surgery.
Reading will be without suspended striker Pavel Pogrebnyak.
The Russian forward was sent off during last weekend's 3-0 home defeat against Wigan and will be missing for the Royals' next three games.
Veteran striker Jason Roberts (hip) is still absent and admitted during the week he has no idea when he will be fit enough to return. Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy (shoulder) also misses out.
