David Moyes is hopeful Kevin Mirallas will be fit in time for Saturday's trip to Fulham - but Everton will again have to make do without Darron Gibson.

Belgian midfielder Mirallas was substituted at half-time during last Sunday's 2-2 draw with Liverpool after taking a nasty blow to the ankle.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Moyes revealed the injury wasn't as bad as first feared and promised to give the forward every chance to prove his fitness ahead of kick off at Craven Cottage.

"Hopefully he's got a chance," said Moyes. "His ankle's still sore but it's not quite as bad as we thought.

"He's not quite there yet but hopefully he’ll have a chance for the game."

Gibson, meanwhile, is still struggling with the thigh problem he picked up against West Brom in early September and Moyes admitted that problem is proving more complicated than anticipated.

"He's got a tendon problem at the top of his thigh which has been worse than we thought and also making [his absence] longer than we thought," he said. "But obviously he's getting better."

One player Moyes hopes is back to full fitness is Marouane Fellaini.

The Scot felt the midfielder lacked sharpness against Liverpool having recovered late from a knee injury but believes the run out at Goodison Park will have been of benefit to the Belgian.

"It surprised us a bit because he'd done the training and he'd done a lot of the work,” said Moyes. “But obviously with the injury he did miss a bit of training and missing a game or two can [affect you]. But he will, I'm sure, be better for the extra game."

South African Steven Pienaar will return to the squad having served his one-match suspension against the Reds.

Alec WalkerWest Brom certainly left an impression on Gibson. I think that teams will target Evertons best men, just as Suarez did last Saturday.
