Everton are without midfielder Jack Rodwell (ankle) who has been ruled out for up to three months for the Toffees.
Striker Louis Saha (knee) is also missing, but captain Phil Neville (foot) should be passed fit to face his former club.
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is expected by many to start despite the allegations about Rooney's private life printed in last weekend's newspapers which have dominated the headlines over the last week, with some reports suggesting Rooney may ask United boss Sir Alex Ferguson for some time out.
United could also have Rio Ferdinand (knee) in contention for the early kick-off in the Premier League.
But Anderson (knee) is doubtful and fellow midfielders Michael Carrick (Achilles) and Owen Hargreaves (knee) are ruled out, although Hargreaves could return to first team action before the end of the month.
