Moyes To Assess Squad Fitness

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

David Moyes will assess 'a few knocks and bruises' ahead of Everton's trip to Arsenal.

The game at the Emirates comes just three days after the 2-0 win over QPR and the Blues boss is set to fully assess the fitness of his squad.

Moyes acknowledged that it is a make or break game for his side's Champions League aspirations and is hopeful of having a full squad available.

"I think we we are okay," he said at his pre-match press conference. "We have a few knocks and bruises to be assessed today."

Tony Hibbert is set to continue his comeback from calf surgery by playing for the Under-21s at Middlesbrough on Monday afternoon.
