Gibson Returns For Derby

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Darron Gibson returns to the Everton starting XI for the Merseyside derby.

The midfielder missed the win over Fulham last weekend through injury but is fit to face Liverpool at Anfield.

Gibson replaces Nikica Jelavic in the side, with the Croat dropping to the bench.

Phil Neville remains sidelined with a knee injury, his absence meaning he has played his final Merseyside derby.

And Phil Jagielka captains the side in Neville's absence, with the centre-half preparing to take over the captaincy full-time.

Liverpool name Steven Gerrard in their side despite rumours to the contrary, with the Reds unchanged from their 6-0 win at Newcastle. Luis Suarez is suspended.

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