Very slow team though

Will very much be relying on playing smart quick passes. Probably will end up being a very technical match.

we are, but that's no real change, and wouldn't have been improved by heitinga and fellaini's inclusion (ignoring fellaini's other attributes).

oviedo might get a look in later on, which will help.

I know people don't really like our bench options but to be honest it isn't the worst we have ever had. We have a few options between Naismith, Oviedo, Barkley, and Vellios.

As you say bench options have certainly been worse, expecting a Barkley cameo late appearance today, maybe a cheeky 15-20 minutes if scores are decent...

If we have a 2 goal lead I could easily see the above happening.

Statisticians Opta on Twitter: "15 - Everton have scored in each of their last 15 PL games; the longest run seen in the competition this season. Dangerous."

A clean sheet would be nice too though !!!

I really fail to see why people want Straq back . He was awful in all but effort and his return would be akin to getting Jeffers back to sit on the bench . I would love to see Barkley but if Moyes is willing to start Hitz before giving him a go there must be a fucking good reason . We should win today but Wigan play decent football and that team may well allow them to outplay us at home .

just came back in to write this. Was just looking at it on fantasy football there. We've only failed to score once this season (WBA) and have only 2 clean sheets (Man U and Swansea). Sounds like we're heading for our overdue 0-0 draw

Hoping for a nice stream here.

I'm pretty confident we'll win this. Jelavic in the first 10 minutes, Gibson and Osman with the other two.

Only "2" clean sheets against probably 2 of the the better teams in the league...

We have let some shit goals in though against teams we have been dominating
Not forget the assistance of some some fucking dodgy decisions...

It would be so nice to just play a game well and win well instead of our hanging on as usual

5-0 my prediction league guess... It would be nice !!!

Hitz has been putting in crosses from odd angles
