Injury-hit Everton could welcome back midfielders Kevin Mirallas and Darron Gibson for Saturday's Premier League match against Norwich at Goodison Park.
Mirallas missed last weekend's defeat by Reading with a hamstring problem while Gibson has been out since the start of September with a hamstring injury but played for Everton's under-21 side earlier this week.
Captain Phil Neville is unlikely to play again this year following knee surgery while key midfielder Marouane Fellaini is suspended.
Striker Victor Anichebe (hamstring) and full-back Tony Hibbert (calf) are doubtful and Everton boss David Moyes has recalled teenage midfielder Ross Barkley from a loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday as cover.
Fullback Russell Martin is back in training after recovering from his back injury and could also feature against Everton.
Defender Michael Turner, however, is described as "touch and go" by Norwich manager Chris Hughton as he tries to shrug off a shoulder problem.
Everton: Howard, Coleman, Heitinga, Jagielka, Baines, Pienaar, Osman, Naismith, Jelavic, Mucha, Distin, Duffy, Oviedo, Hitzlsperger, Gueye, Vellios, Mirallas, Gibson, Barkley.
Norwich:** **Ruddy, R Martin, Whittaker, Bassong, Barnett, Garrido, Howson, Snodgrass, Johnson, E Bennett, Surman, Holt, Rudd, Turner, Jackson, Pilkington, Hoolahan, Fox, Morison, Tierney, Tettey, R Bennett.
