Marouane Fellaini will play no part for Everton in their FA Cup tie against Oldham Athletic.

Belgium international Marouane Fellaini has not been included in the Everton squad for this evening's FA Cup replay against Oldham Athletic.

In his place Darron Gibson will play in the heart of the midfield, while Kevin Mirallas will partner Nikica Jelavic in attack.

Meanwhile, Matt Smith has only been handed a slot on the Oldham bench, which in turn has seen loanee striker Chris Iwelumo given a chance from the start.

Everton: Howard; Baines, Distin, Jagielka, Coleman; Neville, Osman, Pienaar, Gibson; Mirallas, Jelavic

Oldham: Bouzanis; Brown, Grounds, M'Voto, Tarkowski; Croft, Furman, Baxyer, Obita; Barnard, Iwelumo
