Everton will be without Tony Hibbert, Darron Gibson and Victor Anichebe for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash with Sunderland at Goodison Park.
Defender Hibbert is sidelined by a calf problem, while midfielder Gibson - who last featured for the first team on September 1 - is still not yet ready to make his return from a thigh injury.
Forward Anichebe is also on the casualty list due to a hamstring complaint.
Provisional squad: Howard, Coleman, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Naismith, Neville, Osman, Pienaar, Fellaini, Jelavic, Mucha, Heitinga, Oviedo, Mirallas, Gueye, Hitzlsperger, Vellios, Duffy.
