Kevin Mirallas has been passed fit to make the bench for Everton's Premier League encounter with Southampton tonight.

The Belgian has featured just once since mid-November due to a persistent hamstring problem but returns to the squad for the clash on the south coast.

David Moyes makes one change to the side that was held to a goalless draw by Swansea last weekend as Steven Naismith comes in for Victor Anichebe.

It means Tim Howard continues in goal behind a defence of Seamus Coleman, Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka and Sylvain Distin.

Skipper Phil Neville, celebrating his 36th birthday, starts in midfield and is joined by Steven Pienaar, Leon Osman, Marouane Fellaini and Naismith, with Nikica Jelavic the lone man in attack.

Defender John Heitinga, who has missed the Toffees' last two games with a minor knock, is also back among the substitutes. 

Former Everton Academy defender Danny Fox is included in Southampton's squad but starts on the bench.

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Jagielka, Distin, Naismith, Pienaar, Neville, Osman, Fellaini, Jelavic. Subs: Mucha, Heitinga, Oviedo, Mirallas, Hitzlsperger, Anichebe, Duffy

Southampton: Boruc, Clyne, Yoshida, Hooiveld, Shaw, Puncheon, Schneiderlin, Cork, Guly, Ramirez, Lambert. Subs: K Davis, S Davis, Rodriguez, Fox, Richardson, Chaplow, De Ridder
