No Fellaini For Cup Replay

There's no Marouane Fellaini for Everton as they host Oldham in the FA Cup fifth round replay.

Fellaini picked up an injury in Saturday's defeat at Norwich and is replaced in the starting XI by Phil Neville, with Kevin Mirallas also preferred to Steven Naismith.

There is still no return for Victor Anichebe as he continues to nurse an injury he picked up in the first meeting of the two sides.

Seamus Coleman continues in the side after he returned from injury against Norwich on Saturday.

Fellaini's absence could mean either Neville operating in central midfield or at right back - the latter switch meaning Coleman would play on the wing.

For Oldham, Jose Baxter starts on his return to Goodison but cup hero Matt Smith will again be on the bench.

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

Oldham: Bouzanis, Brown, Grounds, Mvoto, Tarkowski, Croft, Furman, Iwelumo, Obita, Barnard, Baxter. Subs: Cisak, Wesolowski, Simpson, Smith, Millar, Winchester, Mellor.
