Distin doubtful for Spurs showdown

Centre-back Sylvain Distin and midfielder Dan Gosling both sustained hamstring injuries in the midweek Europa League victory over AEK Athens with Distin a major doubt.

Brazilian striker Jo also picked up a minor knee injury in Greece but he is expected to recover in time.

Joseph Yobo missed the European clash with a hamstring problem and is unlikely to feature while fellow defender Johnny Heitinga serves a one-match suspension after receiving his fifth booking of the season in last week’s Merseyside derby defeat.

Everton (from): Howard, Yobo, Baines, Hibbert, Cahill, Gosling, Rodwell, Bilyaletdinov, Fellaini, Pienaar, Saha, Yakubu, Neill, Nash, Jo, Baxter, Agard, Wallace, Duffy, Coleman.
