Late assessment for Everton's Gibson28/12/2012 - 15:02:44
Everton midfielder Darron Gibson is hoping to prove his fitness in order to feature in Sunday’s Barclays Premier League clash against Chelsea at Goodison Park.
Gibson – eligible after his red card in last week’s win at West Ham was overturned – was withdrawn at half-time against Wigan on St Stepen's Day with a thigh strain.
Right-back Seamus Coleman could return after a knock but midfielder Marouane Fellaini completes a three-match ban and defender Tony Hibbert (hamstring) and striker Kevin Mirallas (calf) are out.
Provisional squad: Howard, Mucha, Neville, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Naismith, Osman, Gibson, Pienaar, Jelavic, Heitinga, Hitzlsperger, Oviedo, Barkley, Vellios, Gueye, Duffy, Anichebe.
