Everton v Wolves

Team News (new)

Defender Phil Jagielka will take another injection in his broken toe to help him feature against Wolves on Saturday.

Jagielka played in England's friendly victory over Spain last weekend but then returned to Finch Farm to continue treatment.

Marouane Fellaini returns from suspension after the missing the defeat to Newcastle.

Wolves' only doubts for the game are Kevin Foley and Ronald Zubar.

Form (new)

Everton's 2-1 reverse against Newcastle a fortnight ago was their sixth defeat in seven games in all competitions and David Moyes' side start the weekend just one place above the relegation zone.

The Blues are looking to avoid a fourth successive defeat at Goodison Park following recent losses against Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea.

Wolves' 3-1 home win over fellow strugglers Wigan last time out was their first in the Premier League since August. Jamie O'Hara, David Edwards and Stephen Ward were all on the scoresheet as Mick McCarthy's side moved out of the bottom three.

Wolves' only other away win of the season came on the opening day of the campaign when they came from behind to beat Blackburn 2-1 at Ewood Park.

Match Stats (new)

1. Jack Rodwell could make his 50th Premier League start on Saturday.

2. Everton's last home defeat against Wolves came in September 1979, as goals from Brian Kidd and Trevor Ross couldn't prevent Gordon Lee's side losing the game 3-2.

3. Goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann, who joined Everton from Wolves, failed to keep a clean sheet in the 14 league games he played for the West Midlands club last term.

4. Mick McCarthy has only beaten Everton once in eight attempts as a manager. McCarthy's Millwall side won 4-2 at Goodison Park in October 1995 to knock the Blues out of the League Cup.

What They Say

Phil Jagielka (Everton defender) on Wolves: "They had a fantastic result last time out and they were struggling, one win gives you a bit of a kick start.

"They'll be coming here knowing what sort of pressure we're under to get the win so they'll be trying to keep the crowd quiet and nullify us and try and hit us on the counter."

Dave Edwards (Wolves midfielder) on Everton: "I think Everton have had a few players away like we had and it would be nice to go there and be confident after our win against Wigan and back it up with another positive result.

"It is important we build on Wigan when we did maybe ride our luck at times but we deserved that after some of the things that have happened before."

Classic Match (new)

EVERTON 2-0 WOLVES (Saturday 22 November 2003): Everton's only Premier League win over Wolves at Goodison Park came back in November 2003 courtesy of two goals in three minutes. After a scrappy opening Tomasz Radsinski drilled in a low shot from 25 yards out to give the Blues lead, and soon after Kevin Kilbane headed in Wayne Rooney's right wing cross for 2-0.

Last Meeting (new)

WOLVES 0-3 EVERTON (Saturday 9 April 2011): Three top quality goals in 24 first half minutes helped Everton past Wolves in their last meeting at Molineux in April. Jermaine Beckford headed in Leon Osman's cross to give the Blues the lead before two superb long range efforts from captain Phil Neville and Diniyar Bilyaletdinov.

Us And Them (new)

A number of players have represented both Wolves and Everton over the years and the list includes Joleon Lescott, Andy Gray, Derek Mountfield, Segundo Castillo, Marcus Bent and Michael Branch.

Goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann signed for Everton from Wolves earlier this year but is yet to make an appearance for the Blues.
