Everton defender Leighton Baines a major doubt for Manchester City clash
Premier League team news
Friday 30 November 2012
Everton defender Leighton Baines is a major doubt for tomorrow's trip to Manchester City but manager David Moyes will wait as long as possible before ruling him out.
If the left-back does not overcome the hamstring problem sustained in the midweek draw against Arsenal then either Sylvain Distin or Bryan Oviedo will fill in.
Midfielder Seamus Coleman and forwards Kevin Mirallas and Victor Anichebe (both hamstring) are unlikely to be fit to return.
Provisional squad: Howard, Hibbert, Heitinga, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Naismith, Osman, Gibson, Pienaar, Fellaini, Jelavic, Mucha, Hitzlsperger, Duffy, Oviedo, Barkley, Gueye, Vellios.
