Everton v Aston Villa preview

Darron Gibson came on as a substitute against West Brom following a thigh problem and will hope to feature in Saturday's clash with Villa.

Full-back Seamus Coleman is expected to be out for a few more weeks with a similar injury suffered against Southampton last month.

Nikica Jelavic could be restored to the starting XI, but midfielder Magaye Gueye has left the club to join Brest on loan until the end of the season.

French midfielder Yacouba Sylla is set to go straight into the Aston Villa side after sealing a move from Clermont Foot on deadline day.

Richard Dunne has suffered a fresh setback to derail his comeback from a groin problem, while Fabian Delph is still sidelined with an ankle injury.

Gabriel Agbonlahor and Andreas Weimann will both be hoping to start after impressing off the substitutes' bench in the midweek loss to Newcastle.
