Everton will be without midfielder Marouane Fellaini for tomorrow’s Premier League clash at West Ham as the Belgium international begins a three-match suspension.
The Football Association handed Fellaini the ban after reviewing footage of Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Stoke, in which he appeared to headbutt Potters captain Ryan Shawcross.
Toffees boss David Moyes - who has had Kevin Mirallas, Victor Anichebe (both hamstring), Tony Hibbert (calf) and Phil Neville (knee) sidelined in recent weeks - said this morning there was “quite a lot” of injury news within his squad, but would not be drawn on any specifics.
Provisional squad: Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Naismith, Osman, Gibson, Pienaar, Jelavic, Mucha, Heitinga, Hitzlsperger, Oviedo, Barkley, Vellios, Gueye, Duffy.
