Everton have reported no fresh injury concerns ahead of their derby clash with Liverpool, who will be missing Luis Enrique.

Defenders Antolin Alcaraz (hernia) and Tony Hibbert (calf) are both available after long lay-offs but unlikely to be thrown straight into the Goodison Park clash.

Striker Arouna Kone (knee) and midfielder Darron Gibson (knee) are long-term casualties.

For Liverpool, Left-back Jose Enrique has been ruled out with a knee injury which requires surgery so Aly Cissokho looks set to keep his place for the 221st Merseyside derby.

Striker Daniel Sturridge has been affected by a dead leg but that did not prevent him playing 90 minutes for England against Germany in midweek.

Captain Steven Gerrard is also playing through a hip problem but that will not be enough keep him out.

Everton squad: Howard, Robles, Coleman, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Stones, Alcaraz, Hibbert, Pienaar, Barry, Heitinga, McCarthy, Osman, Barkley, Deulofeu, Naismith, Mirallas, Oviedo, Lukaku, Jelavic.

Liverpool squad: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Cissokho, Lucas, Gerrard, Henderson, Coutinho, Suarez, Sturridge, Jones, Toure, Sakho, Kelly, Alberto, Moses, Allen, Sterling.
