Everton will go into this game with every intention of getting the job done first time. Wigan still have a relegation scrap on their hands and whilst they are very much capable of pulling off good results against the stronger sides perhaps the extra games will lurk at the back of players minds.
Everton will however be without top class goalkeeper Tim Howard, which will be a miss although you would expect them to cope.
If form is anything to go by in this game then its Everton who go into the game the stronger having not lost in any of their last five home games. Wigan have won three away games in their last five albeit against weaker opposition.
