Neville out of Merseyside derby

Everton could have Darron Gibson back available for this weekend's Premier League clash with Liverpool, but Toffees captain Phil Neville has been ruled out.

Manager David Moyes said midfielder Gibson, who missed last Saturday's 1-0 win over Fulham through an injury picked up a week earlier against Sunderland, has a chance of featuring in Sunday's contest at Anfield.

There was bad news regarding Neville, though, with Moyes revealing that a knee problem will keep the defender - also not involved in the Fulham game - out of what will be the last Merseyside derby before his career as an Everton player finishes this summer.

Provisional squad: Howard, Baines, Jagielka, Heitinga, Distin, Coleman, Gibson, Osman, Pienaar, Fellaini, Mirallas, Anichebe, Mucha, Duffy, Oviedo, Barkley, Jelavic, Naismith, Hibbert.

Neville: "I want to continue to play at the top level as long as I physically can"

"I would like to thank the Manager, Chairman, all of the staff and the players at Everton for their continued support during my time at the club. I’d also like to pay a special thanks to the fans, who have been amazing over the past eight years and Everton will always have a place in my heart."

"I want to continue to play at the top level as long as I physically can, and will be weighing up my options before making a decision on my next move. I’ll now be doing everything I can to help Everton finish as high up the league table as possible.”
