Everton travel to Reading to try and earn a vital three points to stay in 4th place

Alex Livesey

Darron Gibson, Kevin Mirallas, and Tony Hibbert all miss out on the trip to Reading as Moyes tries to marshal his side to what should be 3 points. This is Everton though so it certainly won't be easy. Our recent tendency of allowing early goals won't be helped by Reading's ability to attack. Thankfully we will be able to exploit their back line as they go forward, and a lot of goals are likely in this one. Sit back and enjoy, full lineups when they are available.

Everton XI: Howard, Baines, Jagielka, Heitinga, Coleman, Pienaar, Hitzlsperger, Fellaini, Osman, Naismith, Jelavic

Everton Bench: Mucha, Oviedo, Distin, Duffy, Vellios, Junior, Kennedy

Reading XI: Federici, Gunter, Shorey, Gorkss, Morrison, Tabb, Leigertwood, McAnuff, Robson-Kanu, Le Fondre, Roberts

Reading Bench: Taylor, Mariappa, Cummings, Harte, McCleary, Hunt, Pogrebnyak

Interesting to see Neville out of the squad and Hitzlsperger gets his first Everton start. I really like the look of this team even though we are missing Gibson and Mirallas
