Nikica Jelavic returns to the Everton squad for Tuesday night's Capital One Cup third round tie at Leeds United.

The Croatian striker missed the win at Swansea with a knee problem sustained in the 2-2 draw with Newcastle United.

He is deemed fit enough to return at Elland Road, but the game has come too soon for Tony Hibbert (calf) and Darron Gibson (thigh).

Assistant boss, Steve Round, said: “The manager might make one or two changes but the squad is the same. Jelavic is fit and comes back in but otherwise it will be the same.

“We are still without Tony Hibbert and Darron Gibson. The manager will pick the team on Tuesday and it will be a strong team no matter who he goes with.”

Bryan Oviedo will once again be involved having made his Blues debut as a late substitute at Swansea.
