Anichebe May Miss Cup


Victor Anichebe is Everton's only injury concern ahead of Saturday's FA Cup fourth round tie with Chelsea at Goodison Park.

Anichebe, who started the draws against Liverpool and West Ham, is a doubt with a groin injury.

Phil Jagielka and Louis Saha both returned to the squad against the Hammers after overcoming thigh injuries and both are pushing for starts against the FA Cup holders.

Tim Cahill is Everton's only absentee, the 31-year-old will play in the Asia Cup final for Australia against Japan later on Saturday (3pm).

Chelsea are hoping to welcome back England midfielder Frank Lampard to their squad after he was rested for Monday night’s 4-0 win against Bolton at the Reebok Stadium.

Carlo Ancelotti's side remain without long-term absentees Alex, Yuri Zhirkov and Yossi Bennayoun.

Squad: Howard, Mucha, Hibbert, Neville, Baines, Heitinga, Distin, Jagielka, Fellaini, Rodwell, Arteta, Coleman, Osman, Bilyaletdinov, Saha, Gueye, Beckford, Baxter
