Dimitar Berbatov, Aaron Hughes and Bryan Ruiz could all return for Fulham's Capital One Cup third-round clash with Everton.

Berbatov (hamstring), Hughes (thigh) and Ruiz (ankle) missed Saturday's 2-0 loss at Chelsea but could improve Martin Jol's options in the all-Premier League clash as the Cottagers bid to end a six-match winless run at home.

Matthew Briggs (hernia) and first-choice goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg (shoulder) are out.

Midfielder Darron Gibson could be set for his first appearance of the season for Everton. The Republic of Ireland international has been out with a knee injury but manager Roberto Martinez now considers him fully fit.

Changes are expected from the side which beat West Ham at the weekend but midfielder Steven Pienaar, Antolin Alcaraz (both hamstring) and Leon Osman (groin) will not be risked.

Provisional squads:

Fulham: Stockdale, Riether, Richardson, Hughes, Senderos, Hangeland, Parker, Sidwell, Berbatov, Kasami, Kacaniklic, Etheridge, Zverotic, Amorebieta, Karagounis, Duff, Taarabt, Ruiz, Rodallega, Bent.

Everton: Robles, Hibbert, Heitinga, Jagielka, Oviedo, Naismith, Stones, Deulofeu, Kone, Barkley, Howard, Coleman, Mirallas, Jelavic, Baines, McCarthy, Barry, Lukaku.
