Everton midfielder Darron Gibson could be set for his first appearance of the season in the Capital One Cup tie at Fulham.

The Republic of Ireland international has been out with a knee injury but manager Roberto Martinez now considers him fully fit.

Changes are expected from the side which beat West Ham at the weekend but midfielder Steven Pienaar, Antolin Alcaraz (both hamstring) and Leon Osman (groin) will not be risked.
