Roberto Martinez’s side aren’t in great form as they have won just once in their last seven Premier League outings, while 2013-2014 League Cup winners Manchester City will be full of confidence following their remarkable late comeback win at Watford on Saturday.

In head-to-head meetings City won at Goodison 2-0 earlier this season and have won four of their last five encounter with Everton, while the Toffees have only won three of their last 11 home games in all competitions.

In team news USMNT goalkeeper Tim Howard will be rested and Joel Robles will start, while Sergio Aguero is expected to start up front with Wilfried Bony out injured.
