    • 13.50 David Moyes: "I feel that if we can just try to keep winning, I will be pleased that we finish in the top 10. I think this point might just about get us that. If you said that to me at the start of the season, I would have taken that all day long.”
    • 13.45 Terry Connor: “Maybe on the back of the Swansea performance, we come out and play in that manner (second half) from the start. We know it's our last home game and we want to go out on a positive finish. And whether it's Everton or Wigan, we want to try to win the game."
    • 13.40 Nikica Jelavic is a man on form. He has scored eight goals in eight Premier League starts for Everton.
    • 13.35 Wolves have lost their last nine Premier League home games in a row. If they lose today they will equal Sunderland’s record of 10 home defeats in succession.
