Fulham will welcome back Ashkan Dejagah for the visit of Everton to Craven Cottage on Sunday (1.30pm).

The winger missed last week’s defeat at Manchester City but makes a welcome return for the Toffees game, although Felix Magath is still without several key players.

“Kostas Mitroglou will not be back on Sunday so we have to play without him this week,” Magath confirmed in Friday’s pre-match press conference. “But I think next week he will be joining us again.

“Scott Parker is still injured, and Giorgos Karagounis left training today. Ashkan had problems last week – he will be back and he will be ready to play on Sunday.”

One additional absentee is Fernando Amorebieta who serves a one-match suspension following his red card at the Etihad.

Everton welcome captain Phil Jagielka back to the squad after he missed their last five matches with a hamstring problem.

Fellow defender John Stones needed eight stitches in their midweek win at Newcastle United but was okay to continue, although Steven Pienaar (knee) and Lacina Traore (hamstring) will miss out.

Long term absentees Darron Gibson, Arouna Kone (both knee) and Bryan Oviedo (broken leg) will also not feature.
