However, neither team has played to their potential and both managers are under pressure to get things sorted.

Everton are set to miss out on the services of Bernard as he was injured in the loss to Brighton. Yerry Mina is also going to be a huge loss for the Toffees, but they should see Gylfi Sigurdsson back in action.
