Yaya Toure's penalty was enough to give Manchester City victory over Everton last weekend in a 1-0 win at the Ethiad Stadium. Everton have now failed to win any of their last three Premier League matches and haven't kept a clean sheet for five matches. The Toffees have taken just six points from their last six Premier League fixtures (W1 D3 L2). Hull City (6), Leicester City (7), Aston Villa & Crystal Palace ( 8 ) are the only teams to take less points from home fixtures than Everton (9) this season. Romelu Lukaku has scored in each of his last four starts at Goodison Park and has scored the opening goal on three occasions.
Tim Howard is the only Everton player to receive a red card under the Roberto Martinez era when the keeper brought down Sunderland's midfielder Ki 12 months ago. The only side to go longer are Southampton who haven't received a red card for 20 months since a 3-0 home defeat against West Brom which saw Fox and Gaston sent off for the Saints. Everton have committed the fewest fouls in the Premier League this season (138) followed by QPR (149) and are the most fouled team (203) in the Premier League followed by Liverpool (196). Arsenal and Everton have each seen a league high 40 yellow cards awarded to opponents this season.
Possible Line ups
Queen's Park Rangers
QPR recorded their fourth victory of the season as they dispatched their fellow promoted team Burnley 2-0 at Loftus Road. Top scorer Charlie Austin received a red card and scored against his old club. QPR are only the second side in Premier League history to lose their opening seven league fixtures away from home as Bolton Wanderers lost their first nine away matches in the 1995-96 season. The Rs have the fewest amount of goal scorers (5) in the Premier League this season but have earned as many points (7) from their last six fixtures as they did in their opening nine Premier League matches.
The first match between the two managers recorded the joint second highest amount of goals in a Premier League match. Unfortunately for Martinez, it was also the joint second highest defeat of any side in the Premier League as Tottenham destroyed Wigan 9-1, only to lose the same fixture 1-0 in the following season. Redknapp is yet to beat Martinez in three attempts since leaving Tottenham Hotspur and this fixture in the third round of the FA Cup last season resulted in a comprehensive defeat for the Hoops.
