O'Neill said a couple of his players were doubts but would not reveal who they were.
If all are fit, one change may be Danny Rose returning at left-back, but otherwise the starting XI is likely to be much the same as the team that started against Aston Villa.
Everton will be without Tony Hibbert, Darron Gibson and Victor Anichebe.
Defender Hibbert is sidelined by a calf problem, while midfielder Gibson - who last featured for the first team on September 1 - is still not yet ready to make his return from a thigh injury.
Forward Anichebe is also on the casualty list due to a hamstring complaint.
