Everton and Huddersfield Town both picked up a point on Saturday, against AFC Bournemouth and Cardiff City respectively, and each will be looking for more as they clash at Goodison Park.

Team news 

Everton have a raft of unavailable players with Richarlison (suspension), Bernard (muscular), Michael Keane (fractured skull), Phil Jagielka (knee), Yerry Mina (ankle) and Andre Gomes (thigh) all ruled out.

Idrissa Gueye (knee) is also doubtful but Ademola Lookman (groin) has been passed fit.

Huddersfield Town are without Jonathan Hogg, who is suspended, Ben Hamer and Ramadan Sobhi, both of whom have minor injuries to the knee. 

Erik Durm made his Huddersfield debut in the Carabao Cup in midweek but needs time to build up his fitness after more than a year out injured.
