Everton v Wigan preview
Everton are eyeing a top-four spot while Wigan are aiming to
claw their way out of the relegation zone at Goodison Park.
Toffees star Marouane Fellaini serves the second game of his
three-match suspension for headbutting Ryan Shawcross at Stoke last
But fellow midfielder Darron Gibson is available because Everton
have appealed his sending off against West Ham so any ban is
delayed until a decision has been made.
David Moyes also has injury problems with Tony Hibbert (calf)
and Kevin Mirallas (hamstring) both set to miss out.
Roberto Martinez could welcome back skipper Gary Caldwell after
the Scot was an unused substitute in the defeat against
Caldwell’s return would be a boost for Wigan as they have a
defensive injury crisis with Antolin Alcaraz (groin), Ivan Ramis
and Adrian Lopez (both hamstring) yet to return to the team.
Albert Crusat and Ben Watson remain long-term absentees with a
knee injury and a broken leg respectively.
