Victor training ahead of City clash
The Nigeria international was carried off during Saturday's defeat of Bolton after an apparent blow to the ribs but a scan has shown no damage. On-loan Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos, whose time at the club has been blighted by injuries, is also close to returning after a medial ligament strain. Manager David Moyes reports "one or two knocks and niggles" but otherwise long-term ankle injury victim Marouane Fellaini is the only major casualty. Toffees (from): Howard, Neville, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Anichebe, Heitinga, Arteta, Pienaar, Cahill, Yakubu, Gosling, Rodwell, Saha, Hibbert, Yobo, Bilyaletdinov, Osman, Coleman, Nash.
