Up The Toffees

 

Everton v Swansea preview

Team news ahead of Saturday afternoon's Premier League clash between Everton and Swansea at Goodison Park.

Everton remain with the same quartet of players unavailable ahead of the visit of Swansea.

Kevin Mirallas and John Stones have been sidelined by hamstring and ankle problems respectively, while Bryan Oviedo and Arouna Kone are set to play in a practice game next week as they continue to work their way towards first-team action.

Toffees boss Roberto Martinez has said the knocks Romelu Lukaku sustained in the 3-1 win at Burnley and Darron Gibson picked up in training should not prevent them from being selected.

Gylfi Sigurdsson should shrug off a groin injury to feature.

The influential Iceland international limped off during the second half of last weekend's 2-0 home victory against Leicester and was rested for the Capital One Cup defeat at Liverpool in midweek while Swansea also expect midfielder Ki Sung-yueng to play after a shoulder problem.

Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, winger Wayne Routledge and striker Wilfried Bony will return after being stood down at Anfield while Argentina defender Federico Fernandez is free to play after having his red card for a tackle on Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho rescinded by the Football Association on Thursday.
