As a result, the date and time of the Premier League encounter at Goodison Park against Chelsea and the league trip to Newcastle United have now changed.

The trip to the north east - the side's first game of 2013 - has moved from Tuesday 1 January to Wednesday 2 January. The game at St James' Park will now be an 8pm kick-off.
