Team News

  • Gareth Barry picked up a knock to the shin last time out and will be assessed prior to this weekend's game, along with Steven Pienaar and Phil Jagielka.
  • Kone, Gibson, Oviedo and Traore all remain sidelined.
  • Ross Barkley and Steven Naismith will hope to return to the reckoning, with the former competing for a place with Osman and Deulofeu.
  • Michu could be back in the starting line-up having returned to action from the bench last time out, while Pozuelo and Dyer should also be back fit.
  • Chico is back available following a suspension and should replace Jordi Amat in defence.
  • The competition for places in midfield is now extremely strong, though Leon Britton has been a mainstay since Garry Monk took charge.

Prediction

  • Everton will be aiming to leapfrog Tottenham in fifth with a win, who face a tough test against Southampton the following day, with two games in hand over Spurs going into the weekend.
  • Defeat to West Brom last time out was a real warning shot to Swansea, whose form has seen them slip right into the relegation battle, with just 5 points separating themselves and bottom club Fulham.
  • The Toffees have won 5 back-to-back home matches in the league and have still lost just once at Goodison all season. They should have enough against a Swansea side without a win in 8 on the road.
