Team News

  • Marouane Fellaini continues his three match suspension while Darron Gibson will be available despite being sent off against West Ham.
  • Moyes confirmed that he would appeal the dismissal, meaning Gibson will be able to play in the Boxing Day match, with the case due to be heard on December 27.
  • Hibbert and Mirallas are both out injured and the team should remain unchanged, with Anichebe keeping his place up front.
  • Roberto Martinez was very pleased with his side's display against Arsenal so changes are likely to be kept to a minimum.
  • James McCarthy was asked to fill in at centre-back and having performed admirably in the absence of Alcaraz, Ramis and Piscu, he may continue to get the nod ahead of Gary Caldwell.
  • Gomez could come in for the ineffective Shaun Maloney in what may be the only change from the weekend's match.

Prediction

  • Four of the last five games between Everton and Wigan have ended in draws, though only one of said stalemates took place at Goodison Park, with Wigan failing to win any of their last 6 games at Everton's home ground.
  • In the last 16 games between these two sides Wigan have netted just 13 goals, and if the hosts can prevent Martinez's side from scoring on Wednesday a comfortable win looks likely.
  • With 4 defeats in their last 5 matches the visitors desperately need a win to climb out of the relegation zone but Everton haven't lost at home all season and aren't likely to do so here.
