Moyes' Injury Update

David Moyes has revealed he has a virtually fully-fit squad for Saturday's Premier League clash with Wigan.

The Blues chief has confirmed Victor Anichebe is the only member of his senior squad sidelined by injury for the visit of Roberto Martinez's men.

John Heitinga is fit again after recovering from a niggle picked up on international duty for Holland and Louis Saha is also returning to fitness after missing each of the Club's games since the Carling Cup victory over Sheffield United. Magaye Gueye has recovered from a broken toe and Tim Cahill has overcome a minor knock picked up in the draw with Aston Villa.

Moyes told evertonfc.com: "Other than Victor, everybody else is fine.

"Most of the first team boys came through last week's game fine and everybody from the reserves came through. So everybody is pretty much fighting fit."

The Goodison chief confirmed new boys Denis Stracqualursi and Royston Drenthe have benefited from their midweek runout in the reserve side's victory over Aston Villa at The Halton Stadium.

But he insists he will continue to be patient with the duo as they acclimatise to life in England.

He added: "Royston got his first start since April in midweek. He has made himself heard around the place this week and we're enjoying his presence. The hard thing for anybody coming to this country is adjusting to the speed and intensity. You can see that with any new players - even high-profile signings like Dzeko and Silva at City took time to adjust to the English game."

Everton from: Howard, Mucha, Hibbert, Baines, Neville, Distin, Jagielka, Heitinga, Drenthe, Osman, Fellaini, Rodwell, Bilyaletdinov, Cahill, Gueye, Coleman, Stracqualursi, Vellios, Baxter, Barkley, Saha.

Alec WalkerRead that list of players, I don't think we could have signed anyone (incuding all the foreign primadonnas) who would improve on that. Now , no more moaning and lets get behind the team
