Everton's Leighton Baines (calf) and Maarten Stekelenburg (hernia) are close to returning to training but remain sidelined, along with James McCarthy (broken leg).

Ramiro Funes Mori made a 45-minute outing for the Premier League 2 side on Monday - his first appearance since last March - as he eyes a first-team comeback.

Crystal Palace can call upon their January striker signing Alexander Sorloth, but Wilfried Zaha (knee) has been sidelined.

Bakary Sako, Ruben Loftus-Cheek (both ankle) and Connor Wickham (knee) are all long-term absentees.
