Moyes hopeful Fellaini will be fit

Everton boss David Moyes is optimistic midfielder Marouane Fellaini will be available for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Fellaini, who has been nursing a hip injury, did not feature in Belgium’s 2-1 win over Slovakia on Wednesday and will be assessed by the Toffees ahead of the United game, with Moyes saying he thinks the 25-year-old will be “OK” to play.

Phil Jagielka is expected to be involved despite sitting out England’s 2-1 victory against Brazil, while fellow defenders Seamus Coleman (thigh) and Tony Hibbert (calf) remain sidelined.

Provisional squad: Howard, Jagielka, Distin, Heitinga, Baines, Oviedo, Naismith, Hitzlsperger, Osman, Pienaar, Fellaini, Jelavic, Mucha, Neville, Anichebe, Vellios, Gibson, Mirallas, Duffy.
