Marouane Fellaini is in doubt for Everton's clash with Wigan at the JJB Stadium this weekend.

The Belgian strained his groin in last week's 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough and Toffees physio, Mick Rathbone said the club is trying to get him up for the clash with the Latics.

"Fellaini has a very slight groin strain which he felt in the game against Middlesbrough," Rathbone told the club's official website.

"He then joined up with the Belgium squad but they agreed with our assessment and sent him back. He's now having treatment ahead of the game against Wigan."
