Leon Osman only has an "outside chance" of featuring for Everton in today's clash against Sunderland.

Everton manager David Moyes has hinted that Leon Osman will again sit out as the Toffees travel to the Stadium of Light for this afternoon's clash with Sunderland.

The 31-year-old missed Tuesday's goalless draw with Arsenal with a groin problem.

Moyes said that the midfielder is making progress, but only has an "outside chance" of recovering in time.

"Leon's getting better," the Scot told reporters. "I don't know if [the game] will come too quick for him.

"He'll have an outside chance so we'll need to see how he is."

Osman has scored five goals this season.
