Manchester City are close to full strength for the visit of Everton in the Barclays Premier League.

Midfielder Jack Rodwell will miss out against his former club after a recent knock but is back in training and nearing a return.

Striker Stevan Jovetic has also had a minor issue but will be available, meaning defender Martin Demichelis (knee) is the only long-term absentee.

Provisional squad: Hart, Pantilimon, Richards, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Nastasic, Boyata, Kolarov, Clichy, Milner, Silva, Nasri, Navas, Fernandinho, Toure, Garcia, Aguero, Dzeko, Jovetic, Negredo.

On-loan midfielder Gareth Barry is ineligible to face parent club Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Darron Gibson could provide the replacement but manager Roberto Martinez is unsure whether he will be fit as he is still suffering some after-effects from a knee injury.

Forward Kevin Mirallas (ankle) is rated 50-50 while it is still too early for Steven Pienaar to return from a hamstring injury.

Provisional squad: Howard, Coleman, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, McCarthy, Osman, Naismith, Barkley, Lukaku, Jelavic, Robles, Heitinga, Gibson, Stones, Oviedo, Kone, Deulofeu, Mirallas.
