Blackburn, meanwhile, are again without unsettled defender Christopher Samba and the suspended Yakubu, but Martin Olsson does return to the back four.

Everton: Howard; Neville, Duffy, Heitinga, Baines; Donovan, Gibson, Fellaini, Anichebe, Cahill; Saha

Blackburn: Robinson; Lowe, Dann, Givet, Olsson; N'Zonzi, Hoilett, Petrovic, Dunn, Pedersen; Goodwillie
