Tosun set for Wembley outing
Everton could hand a debut to new signing Cenk Tosun at Tottenham on Saturday but Michael Keane is unavailable.
The Turkey international signed a week ago from Besiktas and manager Sam Allardyce confirmed he would be in the squad.
Defender Keane is still sidelined due to a gash to his foot which has reopened an old wound, and is taking longer than expected to heal, while midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye (hamstring) is also out.
Allardyce is expecting a tricky evening against a Spurs side who have not lost to Everton in the past 10 meetings and have gone the last 10 matches at Wembley without defeat.
“Tottenham look like they have overcome the problems they had in the early stages of playing there. They have got over those negative vibes that everybody seemed to have about it and are a big force there now," said Allardyce.
“It will be a tough game to play because of the quality of their side but you hope Wembley will bring the best out of our players because they have the chance to play in such an iconic stadium.”
Provisional squad: Pickford, Kenny, Holgate, Jagielka, Martina, Schneiderlin, McCarthy, Bolasie, Rooney, Sigurdsson, Calvert-Lewin, Robles, Williams, Davies, Baningime, Lennon, Vlasic, Tosun, Niasse, Lookman.
