Mirallas Starts At Bolton
Anichebe also recalled for FA Cup clash at the Reebok.
Kevin Mirallas has been restored to the Everton team for today’s FA Cup fourth round tie against Bolton Wanderers.
The midfielder, who returned from a hamstring injury at Southampton on Monday, makes his first start since the win over Tottenham Hotspur on 9 December.
The Belgian is one of two changes to David Moyes’ team as Victor Anichebe is also recalled. Steven Naismith and the injured Seamus Coleman are the players who make way.
In Coleman’s absence, captain Phil Neville is expected to play at right-back.
Bolton Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman has handed Marvin Sordell just his sixth start of the season.
The former Watford man, who scored both goals in their 2-0 win at Sunderland in the previous round, will spearhead the Whites’ attack in a 4-5-1 formation.
