Toffees duo miss Sporting clash

Everton will be without John Heitinga and Marouane Fellaini for the

UEFA Europa League match at home to Sporting Lisbon on Tuesday

(5:45 pm).

Heitinga is ineligible for the round-of-32, first-leg tie at

Goodison Park while Fellaini is recovering from an ankle injury,

which caused him to miss the victory against Chelsea last week.

Phillipe Senderos is doubtful with a back problem but Steven

Pienaar returns to the squad following a domestic suspension.

Toffees (from): Howard, Neville, Distin, Baines, Senderos,

Yobo, Cahill, Rodwell, Arteta, Osman, Pienaar, Bilyaletdinov,

Coleman, Saha, Donovan, Yakubu, Vaughan, Duffy, Baxter, Nash.
