Everton v Bolton Wanderers

Team News (new)



Landon Donovan is available for the first time since rejoining Everton on a two month loan spell and could feature against Bolton.

Seamus Coleman (thigh), Marouane Fellaini (abductor) and Royston Drenthe were all absent from the New Year's Day victory over West Brom.

Sam Ricketts made a scoring return for Bolton against Wolves after missing 11 months with an Achilles tendon injury.

But Wanderers still have a lengthy injury list which includes Stuart Holden, Chung-Yong Lee, Tyrone Mears and Ricardo Gardner.

Form (new)



Everton stretched their unbeaten run to four games after Victor Anichebe's late winner sunk West Brom at the Hawthorns on Sunday lunchtime.

That goal was the tenth of 19 Premier League goals this season that the Blues have scored in the final 15 minutes of the match.

A 1-1 draw with Wolves on New Year's Eve did little to ease Bolton's relegation concerns - they remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier League four points from safety.

Owen Coyle's side have taken more than twice the number of points away from home (9) than they have taken at the Reebok Stadium (4) this term.

Match Stats (new)



1. The Toffees will be seeking to record their first league 'double' of the season having won 2-0 at the Reebok in November.
 
2. Everton have won four and drawn one of the last five meetings at Goodison between the sides.
 
3. David Moyes requires one more victory to record 300 wins in his managerial career - 113 with Preston and 186 thus far at Goodison.
 
4. Tim Howard requires one more appearance to reach 250 league games in English football.

Last Meeting (new)



BOLTON 0-2 EVERTON (Saturday 26 November 2011): Two second half goals helped Everton past 10 man Bolton at the Reebok earlier this season. David Wheater saw red for a first half lunge on Diniyar Bilyaletdinov and after the break Marouane Fellaini and sub Apostolos Vellios netted in the terrential rain.

Classic Match (new)




EVERTON 2-0 BOLTON (Wednesday 26 December 2007): A rare Phil Neville goal helped Everton on their way to a late Christmas present on Boxing Day 2007. Neville's hopeful centre looped over Jussi Jaaskelainen just after the break and Tim Cahill added a second when he converted Joleon Lescott's cross.

What They Say




LANDON DONOVAN on Bolton without injured midfielder Stuart Holden: "Stuart Holden has been hurt for a while and he won't be playing but it will be nice bragging rights if we can beat Bolton at Goodison and I can play a part in it. I will be excited to see him but more so to play my first game.

"There's no question they are missing him. I'd be curious to see what there record is when he plays versus when he doesn't.
