James McCarthy, Seamus Coleman, Steven Naismith and Leon Osman could all return to the Everton side for their Barclays Premier League clash with Burnley on Sunday.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche insists his side have the character to bounce back from their growing streak of disappointments and beat the odds by securing Barclays Premier League survival.
The Clarets go in search of their first top-flight win at their ninth attempt against Everton at Turf Moor on Sunday.
A second-half lapse cost his men dear against West Ham last week but Dyche is adamant there is still the desire within his camp to turn things round.
We believe this group is honest enough to keep learning and not be broken by it. You just get dented and you take the knocks and come off the ropes and get ready to take it again.
We hope to use that mentality wisely over the season and the next step is to use it to learn how to win.
Despite Everton's inconsistent start to the season and a midweek trip to France in the UEFA Europa League, Dyche is under no illusions about the difficulties of finally claiming a three-point haul on Sunday.
Luke Shaw has vowed to improve and admitted he is yet to hit top form at Manchester United.
The £27million defender knows he has struggled to adapt since his summer move from Southampton.
And the 19-year-old, who played in United's 2-2 draw at West Brom on Monday, has given an honest assessment of his start at Old Trafford.
Shaw, who played for England in this summer's World Cup, also dropped back to the Under-21s this month to help them qualify for Euro 2015.
They haven't seen the best of me yet. I know I haven't been up to my full potential and I think maybe people can see that at the moment. I am trying hard and it's about getting used to everything.
When you come to a club like this it's never easy for a young player like me. But I'll get myself started soon and put in good performances.
Eliaquim Mangala is set to miss Manchester City's home match against Tottenham with a thigh injury.

Clarets manager Sean Dyche, whose side had drawn their previous three league matches before losing 4-0 at West Brom, conceded it was a bad day at the office for his side.
He said: "It was a performance where we never got started and never got to grips with the game at all. It's a real low day for us performance-wise.
"There is a reality to it, we've seen results like this in the Premier League and it's happened to us and it's important we grow and learn from it very very quickly."
Burnley have now gone over six and a half games since scoring their last goal. On how he will attempt to fix that problem, Dyche said: "We'll keep working on the training pitch, keeping working with the players' mentality and belief."
