Monday night’s Premier League action comes from Goodison Park where Everton face Queens Park Rangers.
Roberto Martinez’s men are without a win in their last four games in all competitions and they have taken just one point from the last nine available in the league – a run which sees them sit in thirteenth place though victory here will see them move into the top half at the expense of city ricas Liverpool, who were beaten 3-0 at Manchester United yesterday.
Steven Naismith, James McCarthy and Darron Gibson all face late fitness tests ahead of the game, while John Stones could return ahead of schedule having missed the last two months with an ankle injury though Gareth Barry is suspended.
Harry Redknapp’s side dropped back in to the relegation zone after Burnley beat Southampton on Saturday afternoon but three points here would represent a third win in four games, and see them rise to as high as fifteenth place.
Charlie Austin misses out after being sent off in last weekend’s win over Burnley while Steven Caulker is in contention despite suffering a cut to the head whilst out with teammates.
Eduardo Vargas is 12.0 (11/1) with Bet Victor to open the scoring, ahead of Bobby Zamora who can be backed at 13.0 (12/1) with Bet 365.
These two sides met on Merseyside in the third round of last season’s FA Cup, with the Toffee’s running out 4-0 winners while they also won without conceding when they last met in the league at Goodison Park.
