Jelavic set to start
Darron Gibson and Tony Hibbert are out of Everton's home clash with Southampton while Steven Naismith and Seamus Coleman are doubtful.
Gibson (thigh) and Hibbert (calf) are not yet ready to return which means Phil Neville could be deployed at right back - particularly if Coleman is ruled out.
Coleman and Naismith picked up knocks against Leeds United in midweek while Victor Anichebe is also a slight doubt because of a chest infection, but Nikica Jelavic was expected to start anyway after returning from injury at Elland Road.
Provisional squad: Howard, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Neville, Pienaar, Osman, Jelavic, Fellaini, Mucha, Gueye, Heitinga, Anichebe, Mirallas, Naismith, Oviedo, Coleman, Vellios.
