Mirallas Fit For City Clash

by Adam Clark @efc_adamclark

Kevin Mirallas has been passed fit to play against Manchester City and starts at the Etihad Stadium.

There is also a Premier League return for midfielder Darron Gibson, who is named among the substitutes.

Everton head into the clash looking to retain their status as the league's only unbeaten side and manager Roberto Martinez has made just one enforced changed, with Steven Naismith coming in for the ineligible Gareth Barry.

Meanwhile, Joe Hart retains his place between the sticks for the hosts, despite media speculation on Saturday morning suggesting the England No.1 could be dropped.

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Jagielka, Distin, Mirallas, Naismith, McCarthy, Barkley, Osman, Lukaku. Subs: Robles, Gibson, Heitinga, Jelavic, Kone, Deulofeu, Stones

Man City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Silva, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Toure, Milner, Negredo, Aguero. Subs: Pantilimon, Richards, Clichy, Nastastic, Navas, Nasri, Dzeko
