On-loan striker Lacina Traore is set to make his Everton debut against Crystal Palace at Goodison Park on Wednesday but it will be from the bench.

The Monaco forward was an unused substitute in Sunday's defeat at Tottenham but manager Roberto Martinez is keen to give him some pitch time at home.

Fellow on-loan striker Romelu Lukaku is still a week away from fitness while defender Antolin Alcaraz has returned to training but will not be match-ready until the start of March.

Provisional squad: Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Barry, McCarthy, Mirallas, Barkley, Pienaar, Naismith, Robles, Hibbert, Stones, McGeady, Osman, Deulofeu, Traore.
