Everton v Blackburn

By: Fantasy League 18th September 2009


Everton boss David Moyes was unable to rest players for the midweek Europa game against AEK Athens on Thursday, and so may field a similar team for this weekend's clash with Blackburn at Goodison. Phil Neville damaged his knee in the defeat at Fulham and will be out until November, with Mikel Arteta and Phil Jagielka also out long-term. Victor Anichebe has returned to training and is close to a return to the squad, but match fitness remains an issue, while Louis Saha overcame a hamstring problem in midweek, but got himself sent-off in the process. Lucas Neill is in the squad after signing during the week, although may not start.

  • Injured: Neville, Arteta, Jagielka
  • Suspended: None
  • Doubtful: Anichebe
  • Late Fitness Test: None

Rovers manager Sam Allardyce will wait until the last possible moment to decide whether Benni McCarthy and Steven N'zonzi are fit for the trip to play Everton, following ankle and foot injuries respectively. Both should be named in the squad but whether they start or not will depend on late tests. Elsewhere Christopher Samba faces a late fitness test on the extent of his concussion, but should take his place in the centre of Rovers defence. Lars Jacobsen should retain his place despite Michel Salgado's arrival, to play against his former club.

  • Injured: None
  • Suspended: None
  • Doubtful: None
  • Late Fitness Test: McCarthy, N'zonzi
