Everton manager David Moyes is hopeful defender Phil Jagielka and midfielder Darron Gibson will be fit for the visit of Fulham.
Jagielka missed last weekend's defeat at Sunderland after aggravating an ankle problem while Gibson was substituted at half-time, although Moyes said his injury was not related to his long-term thigh problem.
Forward Victor Anichebe should be fit after complaining of a tight hamstring last week.
Fulham expect to have winger Damien Duff back from a thigh injury for Saturday's trip to Everton.
Steve Sidwell begins the first of a four-match ban following his red card against Arsenal last weekend, while fellow midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong will be available having missed out against his parent club.
Defender Sascha Riether (ankle) is doubtful. Midfielders Mahamadou Diarra (knee), Ashkan Dejagah (ankle) and Simon Davies (hip) are sidelined.
