Everton won`t risk Mirallas

Winger Kevin Mirallas is not expected to be risked when Everton travel to Southampton on Monday after virtually two months out with a hamstring injury.

The Belgian is reported to be back in training but, after attempting to come back last month and breaking down again, manager David Moyes will not want to rush him.

Defender Johnny Heitinga could return after missing the last two games with a knock but full-back Tony Hibbert (calf) and midfielder Darron Gibson (thigh) remain on the sidelines.

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