Samuel Eto'o is in contention for Everton's Europa League opener against Wolfsburg at Goodison Park on Thursday.

The Cameroon striker missed the Toffees' 2-0 victory over West Brom on Saturday with a groin problem but has recovered.

Defender Sylvain Distin (hip) is also available while long-serving full-back Tony Hibbert could make his first appearance since February, but the game comes too soon for striker Arouna Kone (knee) and full-back Bryan Oviedo (broken leg).

Provisional squad: Howard, Coleman, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Hibbert, Barry, McCarthy, McGeady, Mirallas, Naismith, Lukaku, Robles, Stones, Alcaraz, Gibson, Osman, Besic, Pienaar, Eto'o.
