On-loan striker Lacina Traore is set to make a delayed debut after being denied his Goodison Park bow by the postponement of Wednesday's match against Crystal Palace. Fellow on-loan striker Romelu Lukaku is still a week away from fitness while defender Antolin Alcaraz has returned to training but will not be match-ready until the start of March.
Garry Monk will make a late decision on Michu's fitness. The Spaniard was not risked in the games against Cardiff and Stoke, and will be assessed in training on Friday. David Ngog and Marvin Emnes are both cup-tied having featured for Bolton and Middlesbrough respectively in earlier rounds of the competition.
