Everton manager Ronald Koeman will have a positive selection headache at multiple positions this weekend. Starting goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg is now fully fit after missing five games with a dead leg. However, stand-in goalie Joel Robles has been impressive in that time, including three clean sheets.

Koeman also said Leighton Baines had a minor rib injury but expected him to be fit to play. Midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye remains away at the Africa Cup of Nations. The only other absentees from the squad are three players with long-term injuries - Muhamed Besic, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Yannick Bolasie.

Morgan Schneiderlin and Ademola Lookman could both make their first start for the Blues, especially in the light of Koeman’s comments about how well the teenager has done in practice this week.

Embattled Crystal Palace will have James McArthur, Scott Dann and Fraizer Campbell available for selection after recovering from injuries. Wilfried Zaha and Bakary Sako are away in Gabon for the aforementioned Cup of Nations.

Pape Souare, Connor Wickham, Jonathan Benteke and goalie Steve Mandanda continue to be out with long-term injuries.
