Everton head into the Manchester City came still looking set for a relegation battle.
The Toffees’ poor pre-World Cup form continued into this week as they lost to fellow relegation-threatened Wolves by two goals to one.
Everton are now 17th in the league and could slip into the bottom three with a loss on Saturday.

Ahead of the game, Frank Lampard has a number of injury concerns.
Yerry Mina went off injured again for Everton on Boxing Day. The centre-back has gone off early in his last three Premier League starts, but the Toffees will have Conor Coady back to replace him after he was ineligible to face parent club Wolves.
Lampard will make a late call on Mina ahead of City.
“He had some cramp in the game and a bit more of a sensation around his hamstring, low-level,” Lampard said on December 30.
Elsewhere, Andros Townsend has suffered a setback in his return from an ACL tear, while James Garner will miss the next month with a back injury.
And finally, Dominic Calvert-Lewin remains a doubt after the forward could not recover from a continuous thigh issue in time to play any part in the Boxing Day defeat.
