The Toffees have been in fine form of late and have won four out of their last five matches in all competitions.

They hammered League Two outfit Cheltenham Town 5-1 in their third-round FA Cup tie last time out.

David Moyes continues to work wonders with the blue half of Merseyside and they have found themselves competing with London giants Tottenham and Arsenal for a place in Europe next term.

Toffees skipper Phil Neville, winger Seamus Coleman and defender Leighton Baines are all expected to return after recovering from injury.

However, the Merseysiders will still be without Johnny Heitinga (thigh), Darron Gibson (thigh), Tony Hibbert (thigh) and Kevin Mirallas (hamstring).

Meanwhile, the Swans will be full of confidence after they shocked Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday in their Capital One Cup semi-final first-leg.

The Welsh outfit will no doubt look to build on that result and exact revenge for their 3-0 loss to the Toffees earlier this season.

Star striker Michu has been in sublime form and has scored in consecutive games since returning from injury.

The Spaniard's goal against the Blues was his 16th for the Swans thus far this season.

Expect him to partner Danny Graham, who also found the back of the net in midweek, up front.

Michael Laudrup will have a full-strength team at his disposal with the exception of Neil Taylor, who is out for the season with an ankle injury.
