Everton are likely to be without Darron Gibson, Jack Rodwell and Seamus Coleman.

Gibson is still struggling with a knee problem, while fellow midfielder Rodwell has suffered a slight recurrence of a hamstring injury and winger Coleman picked up a knock in the FA Cup draw with Sunderland on Saturday.

But playmaker Steven Pienaar is back available to Toffees boss David Moyes after being cup-tied for the Black Cats clash.

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen has shrugged off a minor calf problem to be fit for the trip to Merseyside.

Midfielder Abou Diaby has recovered from a hamstring injury, but will not be involved in the first team after a run-out for the reserves.

Francis Coquelin (hamstring) is close to a return, but centre-back Per Mertesacker (ankle) and midfielder Jack Wilshere (ankle) remain sidelined.

Everton (from): Howard, Mucha, Neville, Hibbert, Distin, Jagielka, Heitinga, Duffy, Baines, Cahill, Drenthe, Fellaini, Pienaar, Osman, Barkley, Gueye, Jelavic, Stracqualursi, Anichebe, Vellios.

Arsenal (from): Szczesny, Sagna, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Gibbs, Walcott, Song, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gervinho, Rosicky, Ramsey, Arteta, Van Persie, Fabianski, Djourou, Benayoun, Chamakh, Santos, Miquel.
