High-flying Everton hit the road to Swansea as the visitors side look to make it 10 unbeaten today at Liberty Stadium, live on NBCSN at 11pm and online at NBC Sports Live Extra.
Roberto Martinez has Everton rocking in front of goal, with Romelu Lukaku continuing to prove a menace for the rest of the Premier League.
Swansea manager Michael Laudrup revealed midweek that he made an attempt to snatch Lukaku from Chelsea on loan, but that he was told the towering striker was staying at Stanford Bridge.
Laudrup could no doubt use a player of Lukaku’s caliber, with new boy Wilfried Bony making his first start back from a hamstring injury, and Michu still out with an ankle problem. The injuries have forced Laudrup into five lineup changes.
The home side also will be without a suspended Angel Rangel as well as the injured Michel Vorm and Nathan Dyer. Everton get James McCarthy back from suspension, and he slides back into the lineup.
Swansea – Tremmel; Tiendalli, Chico, Williams, Davies; Canas, Shelvey, de Guzman, Routledge, Hernandez; Bony.
Bench – Zabret, Amat, Taylor, Britton, Pozuelo, Lamah, Vazquez.
Everton – Howard; Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Oviedo; Mirallas, McCarthy, Barry, Pienaar, Barkley; Lukaku.
Bench – Joel, Heitinga, Naismith, Osman, Stones, Vellios, Alcaraz.
