The Toffees go into the game following their 5-1 trouncing of League Two side Cheltenham in the third round earlier this month, while they also sit fifth in the English top-flight

David Moyes' men will, however, be hoping to improve their goal scoring form against the Trotters, having been held to two goalless draws in their previous two outings against the Championship side.

Kevin Mirallas could return to the starting line-up for the Merseysiders after making a 20-minute cameo in the goalless draw at Southampton on Monday evening.

The Belgian has been an integral part of Moyes' side since moving to Goodison Park from Olympiacos at the beginning of the season.

Seamus Coleman, however, remains a doubt after limping off against the Saints with a thigh injury, while Darren Gibson and Tony Hibbert are still sidelined with thigh and calf injuries respectively.

Bolton coach Dougie Freedman, meanwhile, will hope to continue their improvements this January, with the Trotters unbeaten in their last four games, although Freedman expected to make several changes to his side following their 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace.

New loan signing Craig Dawson is in line to make his debut for the Trotters following his three month loan move from West Brom, while Stuart Holden could also return for his first start in 18 months following his recovery from a long term knee injury.

David Wheater, however, is still out as he continues his recovery from a cruciate ligament injury.
