Football - McCarthy sits out Fulham clash

Everton midfielder James McCarthy is suspended for the visit of Fulham after accumulating five bookings this season.

PA Sport Report

Leon Osman, a substitute for last weekend's draw at Arsenal, is the most likely replacement although youngster Ross Barkley could be asked to drop slightly deeper.

Defender Tony Hibbert picked up a slight knee injury in training and will not be fit until next week while left-back Leighton Baines is realistically at least 10 days away from recovering from a broken toe.
