Coleman and Baines
Coleman and Baines

Roberto Martinez must decide if the now fit Leighton Baines will come back into the starting XI and if so in what position. Will Oviedo stay at left back and Bainesy go into midfield? Or will the England International come straight in at left back?

Sylvain Distin is out with a groin injury and should be replaced with John Stones, although Antolin Alcaraz is back after suspension.

Besides that it's the same squad and just a question of who will be up for the game. Lets hope Kevin Mirallas gets into the game early and shows us his silky skills and Ross Barkley scores another beauty against Sitteh.

Roberto said: "Compared to the squad we had against West Ham, Sylvain Distin who is going to be out for the Man City game, but I don't think he will be out for too long as it doesn't seem a bad injury."But we have got Antolin Alcaraz back from suspension and Leighton Baines I expect tone fully fit for the game. So it's two in, one out.

"James is developing well. With him we need to make sure he's fully fit. He is responding well and we need to make sure when he comes back he is strong and at 100% for all of the second half of the season.

"Leon Osman is working really well with Steven Pienaar, Darron Gibson and Tony Hibbert - they have all been progressing well in the last two or three days but it's making sure that in the next three to four weeks we get everyone back fit for the second half of the season."

Everton Squad: Robles, Coleman, Jagielka, Stones, Oviedo, Mirallas, Eto'o, Besic, McGeady, Barry, Barkley, Naismith, Lukaku, Garbutt, Browning, Kone, Alcaraz, Griffiths.

Kipper's Starting XI: Robles, Coleman, Jagielka, Stones, Oviedo, Besic, Barry, Barkley,  Mirallas, Naismith, Lukaku.

As Kipper's other than Baines on the left and Barkley on the bench. He's currently too much of a liability in any position other than behind the striker.
