Jack Rodwell is in the squad for the Blackpool game, but is not going to start. The Everton manager, David Moyes may use him from the bench if necessary.
Moyesy said: "I think he's close but I don't think he's quite ready yet, but we may need to continue to include him.
"We included him on the bench last week in case we needed his height against Stoke City but he's not fully confident on his ankle yet.
"He played 50 minutes in the reserves and will probably be included again tomorrow, but I don't think he's ready to start and I think he would probably agree with that."
