Big Vic's back! - Chris Brunskill
Everton travel to Upton Park to take on West Ham.
Victories away from home have been missing this season. While an away win is not impossible at West Ham, it is going to be pretty darned difficult nicking points away from 'Big Sam' today. And then David Moyes went and named this line up which is sure to have fans scratching their heads.
Anyways, this close to Xmas, all we can hope for is three points and a good performance from the boys. Merry Christmas everyone, and enjoy the holidays!
Everton starting XI: Howard; Neville, Jagielka, Distin, Baines; Anichebe, Gibson, Heitinga, Pienaar; Osman; Jelavic.
West Ham starting XI: Jaaskelainen, O’Brien, Collins, Reid, Tomkins, Noble, Nolan, Jarvis, O’Neil, Taylor, Cole
Everton subs: Mucha, Oviedo, Naismith, Vellios, Duffy, Barkley, Hitzlsperger.
West Ham subs: Spiegel, Diarra, Spence, Moncur, Collison, Lletget, Maiga
Looks like Coleman is injured and out of the team. Also Mirallas and Fellaini being out means that club captain Neville and Anichebe regain starting spots, and Heitinga comes back into the squad too, somewhere.
