No Everton farewell for injured Neville

Everton boss David Moyes has confirmed captain Phil Neville has already played his final game for the club, with the defender being ruled out of Sunday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Neville, whose career as a Toffees player is concluding this summer, has been sidelined recently by a knee problem and he will not be fit to feature in the match this weekend – Moyes’ last in charge of the Merseyside outfit before he replaces retiring Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson.

Moyes has also revealed that midfielder Leon Osman will miss the contest due to a knee complaint.

Provisional squad: Howard, Coleman, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Mirallas, Gibson, Pienaar, Anichebe, Fellaini, Mucha, Heitinga, Oviedo, Naismith, Hibbert, Duffy, Barkley, Jelavic.
