Faddy In To Face Wolves

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

James McFadden starts for Everton against Wolves.

The Scotsman is in for Victor Anichebe who misses out with a groin problem.

The change is the only one made by David Moyes to the side which started against Stoke on Tuesday night.

It means Phil Neville, Leighton Baines and Darron Gibson all remain sidelined through injury.

McFadden looks set to operate in a wide midfield role with Steven Pienaar on the opposite flank.

Leon Osman, Tim Cahill and Marouane Fellaini will occupy central midfield with Nikica Jelavic up front.

The defence is the same one which has played the last three games, with Sylvain Distin in for Baines at left-back.

On the bench there's plenty of youth, with Ross Barkley, Jose Baxter, Shane Duffy, Seamus Coleman and Magaye Gueye joined by Jan Mucha and Denis Stracqualursi.

Everton: Howard, Hibbert, Jagielka, Heitinga, Distin, Osman, Fellaini, McFadden, Pienaar, Cahill, Jelavic. Subs: Mucha, Barkley, Duffy, Stracqualursi, Gueye, Coleman, Baxter
