Nikica Jelavic boosted Everton’s promising start to the Premier League campaign with two goals in the 3-1 victory over Southampton last weekend. His impressive goals-per-game ratio in a Toffees shirt is one of the reasons the Merseyside club are sitting pretty in second place. On the other hand, Wigan have slipped towards the drop zone after losing three in a row and Roberto Martinez's week got even worse when he was fined £10,000 for recent comments about officials. The omens are not all that positive for the visit of Everton, with the Latics having beaten them just once in seven attempts on home soil, back in 2008.
• Four points after six games is Wigan's worst ever start to a Premier League campaign.
• This is Everton's best start to a Premier League season - 13 points with a +6 goal difference. The only other season they have had 13 points after six games was 2004-05 when they qualified for the Champions League.
Latics are likely to be without Paraguayan defender Antolin Alcaraz once more as the 30-year-old continues his recovery from a groin injury picked up on international duty. The three-match ban handed out to Jordi Gomez last week has been rescinded on appeal, meaning the midfielder is available for selection for the Toffees showdown, though he may be forced to take his place on the bench, with Franco Di Santo now edging his way towards full fitness after a recent injury.

Seamus Coleman should continue at right-back, with Tony Hibbert unlikely to recover from a calf problem. With a thigh injury keeping Darron Gibson sidelined, Leon Osman and Phil Neville should remain in central midfield, affording Kevin Mirallas the chance to flourish on the right flank once again. David Moyes will need to check on Steven Naismith's fitness after he sat out the win over Southampton with a knock.
