On-loan player Landon Donovan is expected to remain in the side, while January signing Darron Gibson is also likely to start following his debut in the Toffees' 1-1 draw with Aston Villa last weekend.
Blackburn are likely to keep the same team that defeated Fulham last Saturday. There are questions over whether Chris Samba will feature for the Lancashire side following his transfer request on Monday.
