Football - McCarthy back after ban

Everton have James McCarthy back available for Sunday's Barclays Premier League match at Swansea, with the midfielder having completed his suspension for collecting five bookings this season.

On-loan Barcelona forward Gerard Deulofeu has been ruled out for between six and eight weeks with the hamstring injury he sustained against Fulham, and Tony Hibbert (knee) is not yet ready for first-team involvement again.

Fellow defender Leighton Baines is continuing to work his way back from a broken toe, with Boxing Day looking likely right now as the point at which he will be able to make his return to match action.
