Duo Return At Qpr

by Rob Urbani @efc_roburbani

Victor Anichebe and Sylvain Distin return to the Everton starting line-up for today's game at Queens Park Rangers.
The duo replace Marouane Fellaini and John Heitinga for David Moyes' 200th away game as Everton boss in the Premier League.
The Dutch defender drops to the bench to accomodate Distin's return alongside Phil Jagielka, whilst Anichebe steps into an attack-minded line-up because of Fellaini's knee injury.
New signing Thomas Hitzlsperger is included amongst the substitutes after the Club received international clearance for him to play.
The 30-year-old former German international signed a short-term contract on Friday and is joined on the bench by Bryan Oviedo, Steven Naismith, Shane Duffy and Magaye Gueye.
Anichebe is expected to play in support of Nikica Jelavic with Kevin Mirallas and Steven Pienaar providing the width.
Phil Neville and Leon Osman will anchor the midfield whilst Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines will provide additional support from the full back positions.
