Everton will be without Royston Drenthe for the game against Manchester United this weekend.

The Dutchman was sent off in extra time during the Carling Cup clash with Chelsea in midweek.

He picked up two yellow cards, the first of which was for dissent and the second for a foul on Ryan Bertrand.

Drenthe, on loan from Real Madrid was making his second consecutive Everton start in the game and had given an energetic performance up until his dismissal.

David Moyes also has injury concerns over Tim Cahill and Phil Neville following the Chelsea game.

Neville didn't emerge from half time because of a hamstring problem and Cahill was also suffering in the latter stages, making the pair doubts for the weekend game with Man United.

Moyes said: "Tim was carrying an injury through the game and Phil has got a bit of a hamstring.

"So we will have one or two doubts but that is what it is like isn't it? You play the games and that's why the good teams can play midweek and Saturday and keep winning and that's what we want to do to."
