On Saturday at Goodison Park Everton host Cardiff City (Watch live on NBCSN and online via Live Extra) with the Toffees aiming to bounce back from their FA Cup defeat to Arsenal last weekend.
Everton’s season is at a pivotal stage, as top four hopes are starting to diminish but Roberto Martinez‘s men are nine points behind Man City in fourth but have played two more games. Cardiff are at the complete opposite end of the spectrum, with the Bluebirds desperate to stay up.

Everton: Howard, Baines, Coleman, Deulofeu, Mirallas, Distin, McCarthy, Lukaku, Barry, Osman, Stones. Subs: Robles, McGeady, Naismith, Barkley, Garbutt, Alcaraz, Browning
