Striker Louis Saha is in contention for Everton's FA Cup fifth-round tie against Reading on Tuesday night after escaping unharmed from a car crash.

Saha lost control his blue Ferrari 458 on Sunday evening and collided with a fence. The 32-year-old, who was alone in the car, was unhurt and no other vehicles were involved.

The only issue is whether the French striker is still troubled by the hamstring injury which hindered his return to action in Saturday's victory over Sunderland.

Asked about the traffic incident, manager David Moyes said: "I don't know much about it. I only just got told this morning. I couldn't tell you much, but he is okay."

Referring to the player's past problems with various injuries, Moyes joked: "Incredibly, he has no injuries from it!"

Midfielder Marouane Fellaini is a major doubt for Tuesday's FA Cup clash after aggravating an ankle problem against Sunderland. Everton will also check on the fitness of Jermaine Beckford (groin), Tim Cahill (foot) and Victor Anichebe.
