Everton v Newcastle United
Leon Osman and Arouna Kone could return for Everton against Newcastle, while Steven Pienaar is not yet ruled out.
All three of those players missed the Capital One Cup defeat to Fulham.
But Roberto Martinez said at his press conference ahead of the game on Monday night that Osman and Kone were progressing well and could be available.
The Blues boss also said that Pienaar could 'never be ruled out' because of his natural fitness, adding that he will monitor the South African ahead of the game against the Magpies.
It means the only player definitely out is Antolin Alcaraz who has suffered a setback with his groin problem and in three to four weeks away from a return.
Newcastle have endured a topsy-turvy campaign to date, beginning with a heavy defeat at Manchester City and a low key 0-0 draw with West Ham.
Back-to-back wins over Fulham and Aston Villa suggested the Magpies were back on track before last weekend's 3-2 home defeat to newly promoted Hull City.
In contrast, Everton are the Premier League's only unabated side and come into the match on the back of two impressive league wins over Chelsea and West Ham.
The Blues have only conceded four goals in the league this season, one of which was a penalty and one a deflection.
Last time the two sides met, in January of this year, Everton recorded a 2-1 win at St James Park.
It was another game set alight by a stunning Leighton Baines free-kick as the England left-back equalised in brilliant fashion following Papiss Cisse's early opener.
After half time Everton struck on the counter attack as Nikica Jelavic broke and centred for substitute Victor Anichebe to slide the ball home.
