Everton short of attacking options

Everton could be light up front for tomorrow’s Premier League clash with Manchester United at Goodison Park.

Louis Saha (calf) has been ruled out for three weeks while Victor Anichebe (knee) remains doubtful.

With another forward, James Vaughan, now on loan at Crystal Palace, Jermaine Beckford is certain to start as he continues his search for a first top-flight goal.

Midfielder Jack Rodwell (ankle) is out for up to three months but captain Phil Neville (foot) is back in training and could return to face his old club.

Provisional squad: Howard, Neville, Hibbert, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Cahill, Fellaini, Pienaar, Heitinga, Arteta, Beckford, Osman, Bilyaletdinov, Gueye, Coleman, Anichebe, Duffy, Baxter, Mucha.
