Midfielders Schneiderlin, Gueye, Davies, Sigurdsson, Lennon, Mirallas, Klaassen, Besic, Vlasic, Baningime
Forwards Rooney, Calvert-Lewin, Niasse, Lookman, Sandro, Bolasie

Everton are unlikely to make wholesale changes following their win over Newcastle, with Mason Holgate set to be preferred to Michael Keane and Phil Jagielka at the heart of defence.

Leighton Baines, James McCarthy and Ramiro Funes Mori remain on the sidelines, but Yannick Bolasie could be named in the matchday squad for the first time since suffering a cruciate ligament injury in December 2016.

Potential Everton starting XI: Pickford; Kenny, Holgate, Williams, Martina; Schneiderlin, Gueye; Lennon, Rooney, Sigurdsson; Calvert-Lewin.

Position Swansea City players
Goalkeepers Fabianski, Nordfeldt
Defenders Rangel, Naughton, Van Der Hoorn, Mawson, Fernandez, Olsson
Midfielders Fer, Clucas, Sanches, Roque Mesa, Carroll, Ki, Fulton, Narsingh, Dyer
Forwards Bony, Abraham, Ayew, McBurnie

Wayne Routledge has been ruled out with a slight knock while Kyle Bartley is not ready to return a knee ligament injury that has kept him sidelined for three months.

Clement has insisted midfielder Renato Sanches will not be sent back to Bayern Munich, though he has not even made the bench for either of the Swans’s last two matches.

Potential Swansea starting XI: Fabianski, Naughton, Van Der Hoorn, Mawson, Olsson; Clucas, Ki; Ayew, Fer, Dyer; Bony.

GAME PREVIEW

Eyebrows were raised when big-spending Everton eventually plumped for Sam Allardyce to replace Ronald Koeman, but the former England boss has got straight down to doing what he does best.

Victory over Huddersfield Town in his first game in charge was followed by a battling point in the Merseyside derby and a midweek win at Newcastle to lift them into the top-half of the Premier League table.

Wayne Rooney has looked particularly revitalised, with the 31-year-old having netted five goals in his last four appearances, including a hat-trick against West Ham.

Swansea, meanwhile, dropped back to the bottom of the table after slumping to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City last time out.

They have, however, been able to frustrate better teams on their travels this season, picking up a point at Tottenham and slipping to narrow defeats at Arsenal and Chelsea.

Nevertheless, manager Paul Clement’s future continues to come under scrutiny, though the club hierarchy insist he is unlikely to be relieved of his duties before the January transfer window opens.
