Everton

Everton recorded their second victory in a row with a 3-1 win against Burnley last weekend and are now just one of two sides to have scored in each of their 9 league matches this season alongside Chelsea. Samuel Eto'o became the first Everton player to score more than one goal in a match since November 2013 when Romelu Lukaku scored a couple in the Merseyside Derby which finished 3-3 whilst 34 matches have passed in between those events. Eto'o scored away from home in a league match for the first time since October 2012 (Dinamo Moscow 0-2 Anzhi). No Premier League side has scored more goals from outside the Penalty area this season than Everton (4).



Possible Line ups


Swansea City

Swansea won their first match in 5 matches (D2 L2) with a 2-0 win over Leicester last weekend and kept their third clean sheet in four home matches in the league. Swansea are yet to beat Everton in the league after 18 matches. This is the most league matches between two sides without any victory by one team against another in the top four tiers of English league football. Swansea are one of just four sides yet to concede a goal from outside the box this season.




Stats and Injuries


Everton - Romelu Lukaku and Darron Gibson are set to be fit despite minor knocks but Bryan Oviedo, Arouna Kone and Kevin Mirallas are roughly 3 weeks from fitness. John Stones is a long term injury.

Swansea City - Ki Sung-Yeung and Gylfi Sigurdsson have minor knocks but are expected to be fit. Dwight Tiendalli and Jordi Amat will likely just miss out whilst Leon Britton and Rory Donnelly won't feature either. Frederico Fernandez had his red card in the Capital One Cup rescinded.

I'm more trusting of fellas when they have my cock in their mouth

Can't go this, son has a match at 12 and I won't be able to drop me daughter off in time.

On another note, how many times has Kone been "3 weeks away from fitness"?

I like that lineup, and hope it's what we see.  Would also be cool to see Oviedo in the squad.

Interesting that Bony has the same (PL) record as Lukaku this season so far.

Although has he missed some games?

He does take pens though which would even things out again on the performance front.

is Oviedo even really that good?

In what aspects?

I'd say he's great value in terms of the flexibility/cover he offers to a squad.

In terms of specifics then he showed that he's a more than adequate back-up for Baines but he's 'ok' in midfield.

Of course he seems really likeable and enthusiastic.

I rate Oveido quite highly.  Think RM's long-term plan is to gradually move Baines to midfield as Barry ages, and gradually get Oviedo more time at LB.

I also think Oviedo can be quite useful in the near-term in a forward role, though reasonable people differ there.  I have a soft spot for versatility.

Aspects of his game I really like - Oviedo is quite intelligent (that's usually what sets our personnel apart, in my view), fearless, and has a rocket of a shot.  That last point is something that only Coleman really provides at the moment.

Love Oviedo.
Will Eto'o start? be his 3rd game in a row starting. I hope so! Got a meeting so wont be able to stream the game but will be keeping an eye out for scores.
I have to return some videotapes.

Oviedo is alright. His game winning performance at old Trafford has clouded some folks judgement of him though.

He's no Besic (who can play anywhere at any time). ;)

A dark horse our Bryan mate. Only time will tell, I think he's a great little player.

i will reserve my judgement on Oviedo, as i can't actually remember a bit of skill or incisive passing i've ever seen him do.

i've seen him score, which was fantastic, and i do think he can strike a ball if i remember correctly, but i mean dan gosling used to score all the time so i dunno.

i do love him as a person like, i'm just not like desperate for him to get back in the side.
