Blues Unchanged

by Matthew Gamble

Everton have named an unchanged side to face Aston Villa.

Tim Howard is fit to continue and David Moyes, unsurprisingly, wasn't keen to tinker with the side that triumphed 4-0 against Wigan last time out.

That means Jo will continue up front as he seeks to score his first away goal for Everton.

He'll be supported by Marouane Fellaini, the Belgian who impressed in the second striker role last weekend.

Tim Cahill and Phil Neville will sit in central midfield with Leon Osman and Steven Pienaar on the flanks.

The skipper is making his 400th league appearance. While Osman and Tony Hibbert are both making their 200th career starts.

It's also Pienaar's 50th league appearance for the Blues.

The defence is the usual back four of Hibbert, Leighton Baines, Joleon Lescott and Phil Jagielka.

On the bench, Louis Saha is joined by Andy van der Meyde, Dan Gosling, Segundo Castillo, Jack Rodwell, Lars Jacobsen and Carlo Nash.

John Carew and Gabriel Agbonlahor will lead the line for Villa, who also include England's Ashley Young and Gareth Barry.
