Everton will assess the fitness of two former Chelsea strikers, Samuel Eto'o and Romelu Lukaku, prior to the London side's visit to Goodison Park in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday.

Eto'o has been short of match fitness, having only joined the club this week, while Lukaku has had a toe injury. Another player with Chelsea connections, on-loan winger Christian Atsu, cannot face his parent club.

Midfielder Steven Pienaar (groin) is definitely missing but midfielder Darron Gibson is still pushing to return after 10 months out. Midfield duo Ross Barkley (knee) and Bryan Oviedo (leg), and striker Arouna Kone (knee) remain sidelined.

Summer signing Diego Costa has been passed fit to play at Everton on Saturday.

The 25-year-old has missed the previous two days of training with a minor muscular injury, but passed an assessment on Friday afternoon.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois could again be selected by manager Jose Mourinho ahead of veteran Petr Cech.
