Jack Rodwell has been ruled out for Everton after aggravating a hamstring injury during the warm-up against Norwich at the weekend.
Young striker Conor McAleny (hamstring) is also unlikely to feature but midfielder Seamus Coleman is set for a return after a thigh injury.
Angel Rangel could replace Jazz Richards in Swansea’s starting line-up after making a rapid recovery from the ankle injury he suffered in last month’s goalless draw with Aston Villa.
Nathan Dyer is set to miss out with a foot problem, meaning Wayne Routledge and Scott Sinclair are likely to retain the wing slots.
