Blues Unchanged For Wigan

by Adam Clark @efc_adamclark

David Moyes has named an unchanged side for this afternoon's trip to Wigan.

As expected, neither Tony Hibbert or Darron Gibson have recovered from injury and the Blues boss has opted to stick with the line-up which earned a 3-1 win over Southampton last weekend. 

Steven Naismith has shaken off a calf problem and is included among the substitutes.

The news means Phil Jagielka will make his 150th Premier League appearance for the Blues in a back four also comprising Leighton Baines, John Heitinga and Seamus Coleman.

Leon Osman, Kevin Mirallas, Steven Pienaar and Marouane Fellaini join captain Phil Neville in midfield, while Nikica Jelavic starts up front and Tim Howard continues in goal.

Naismith's company on the bench is Jan Mucha, Bryan Oviedo, Magaye Gueye, Victor Anichebe, Shane Duffy and Sylvain Distin. Should Distin come on he will join Jagielka in reaching a landmark - the Frenchman will rack up his 100th Premier League outing for the Club.

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Jagielka, Heitinga, Mirallas, Pienaar, Neville, Osman, Fellaini, Jelavic. Subs: Mucha, Oviedo, Naismith, Distin, Gueye, Anichebe, Duffy
