Rodwell Misses Wolves Clash
Distin and Neville also missing but Fellaini back from ban.
Marouane Fellaini celebrates the clinching of a new five-year contract by returning from suspension to face Wolves at Goodison Park today.
The Belgian committed his long-term future to the Blues in midweek and, after missing the trip to Newcastle, is back at the heart of David Moyes' midfield.
He is joined by Leon Osman and Tim Cahill, with new England star Jack Rodwell not making the matchday squad following his exertions for the Three Lions.
Royston Drenthe starts on the left flank with Seamus Coleman on the right.
Louis Saha continues up front while at the other end of the pitch Tim Howard takes up his familiar place between the sticks.
The American starts behind a back four comprising right-back Tony Hibbert, centre-halves Phil Jagielka and John Heitinga and left-back Leighton Baines.
The Blues bench is made up of Jan Mucha, Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, Apostolos Vellios, Magaye Gueye, Ross Barkley, Shkodran Mustafi, Denis Stracqualursi.
