Swansea will be without the services of Nathan Dyer and Angel Rangel through injury and suspension respectively. Chico should return after serving a suspension to take his place in central defence, with Jordi Amat making way.
Michu is a major doubt for the weekend and upcoming Christmas fixtures, with Laudrup revealing that the Swansea forward is struggling with pain in his ankle. On the goalkeeping front, Michel Vorm has undergone successful surgery to cure his knee problem and is expected to be out for around four weeks. Gerhard Tremmel will therefore deputise once more.
Everton have confirmed that Gerard Deulofeu is expected to be out until the new year with a hamstring injury suffered against Fulham last week. Kevin Mirallas dropped to the bench for Deulofeu against Fulham but is expected to return to the side for the trip to Swansea.
James McCarthy returns from suspension and should slot back into the starting XI alongside Gareth Barry.
