Eurosport 2 after Man Utd vs Man City

Everton have picked up just three points from their opening four matches and will be desperate for a win when Blackburn Rovers come to town.

Everton team news

New signing Lucas Neill is unlikely to make the Everton squad because of his lack of match fitness.

Russian midfielder Diniyar Bilyaletdinov's groin injury will be assessed after he was substituted in the Europa Cup victory over AEK Athens but a place on the bench is probably his best hope.

Captain Phil Neville has been ruled out for at least a couple of months with a knee injury sustained in last weekend's defeat at Fulham.

Victor Anichebe, out since last season with a knee injury, is set for an operation next week to remove a pin which will put back his return to action by at least two to three weeks.

Blackburn team news

Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce finds himself in the rare position of having a full-strength squad at his disposal for Sunday's trip to Everton.

Midfielder Steven Nzonzi (foot) and striker Benni McCarthy (ankle) have both recovered from injuries and they are added to last week's squad which beat Wolves.

Former Everton defender Lars Jacobsen will hope to keep his place in the side despite competition from Michel Salgado as he returns to Goodison Park for the first time since his summer move.


Everton: Howard, Yobo, Baines, Distin, Hibbert, Heitinga, Neill, Cahill, Rodwell, Pienaar, Osman, Yakubu, Jo, Fellaini, Nash, Bilyaletdinov, Vaughan, Gosling.

Blackburn: Robinson, Jacobsen, Salgado, Chimbonda, Samba, Nelsen, Givet, Dunn, Grella, Pedersen, Emerton, Diouf, Andrews, Roberts, Di Santo, Hoilett, Kalinic, Brown, Nzonzi, McCarthy.
