Kone has recovered from illness and is available, although boss Roberto Martinez may decide to leave him on the bench with top-scorer Romelu Lukaku continuing up front, while Stones could play for the first time in a month after recovering from a hamstring problem.

Muhamed Besic will not be involved but may return from injury against West Ham at the weekend, while the likes of Leighton Baines, Kevin Mirallas and Gerard Deulofeu – who were all substitutes last time out in the FA Cup win at Bournemouth – will hope for starts.
