As expected, Sylvain Marveaux makes his full Premier League debut this afternoon, in place of the injured Gabriel Obertan.
And Cheick Tiote must have failed his fitness test this morning, because Danny Guthrie continues in central midfield in partnership with Frenchman Yohan Cabaye.
Peter Lovenkrands returns to the substitutes bench for the game which kicks off at 12:45 pm, and Dan Gosling, the former Everton midfielder is also on the subs bench today, and could see some action against his former club.
Former Newcastle center-back Sylvain Distin is on the bench for the Toffees, and Phil Neville captains the side.
The first goal today is to retain our unbeaten record in the league, but a win would be so sweet.
Howay The Lads!!
