Jelavic Starts Against Saints
Anichebe drops to the bench for the Blues.
Nikica Jelavic returns to Everton’s starting line-up for today’s Premier League clash with Southampton.
Having made six changes for the midweek Capital One Cup tie at Leeds, David Moyes reverts to the formula that proved too good for Swansea.
The solitary change from the team that triumphed at the Liberty Stadium sees Jelavic replace Victor Anichebe, who drops to the bench with a minor chest infection.
That means Marouane Fellaini will play off the Croatian international striker with Leon Osman and Phil Neville further back in the centre of midfield.
EFC: Howard, Baines, Jagielka, Heitinga, Neville, Osman, Pienaar, Coleman, Fellaini, Jelavic, Mirallas. Subs: Mucha, Duffy, Distin, Vellios, Anichebe, Oviedo, Gueye.
Southampton: Gazzaniga, Clyne, Yoshida, Fonte, Lambert, Davis, Rodriguez, Ramirez, Ward-Prowse, Lallana, Richardson. Subs: K. Davis (GK), Hooiveld, Guly, Mayuka, Chaplow, Reeves, Puncheon.
