Steven Pienaar returns to Everton’s starting line-up for the game at QPR.

The South African was cup-tied for the Toffees’ win over Blackpool but returns to the side in place of Magaye Gueye who drops to the bench.

Phil Neville is in midfield in place of the injured Darron Gibson and Royston Drenthe continues on the wing.

Tim Cahill is also back in the side after missing the cup win two weeks ago.

Denis Stracqualursi will once again be the focal point of Everton’s attack.

There's further good news on the bench where Nikica Jelavic is joined by the returning Phil Jagielka and Leon Osman.

Also on the bench are Seamus Coleman, Ross Barkley and Gueye.

QPR name Bobby Zamora, Adel Taraabt, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Joey Barton in their starting XI.

Everton: Howard, Hibbert, Baines, Heitinga, Distin, Drenthe, Neville, Fellaini, Cahill, Pienaar, Stracqualursi. Subs: Mucha, Jagielka, Jelavic, Gueye, Barkley, Osman, Coleman.
