Leighton Baines has been honest about Everton's recent failings

By Amir Mir

Everton could make three changes for their Premier League clash against Swansea on Saturday afternoon at Goodison Park.

Ronald Koeman could give starts to the returning Leighton Baines, Idrissa Gueye and Gerard Deulofeu for their weekend showdown.

That means Brian Oviedo, Tom Cleverley and Funes Mori are likely to miss out following the 5-0 drubbing against Chelsea prior to the international break.

Left-back Baines has not featured for the Toffees since September due to injury, but he could return against Swansea and replace Oviedo who was substituted after 36 minutes against Chelsea.

Anchorman Gueye, who missed the the last league fixture, is likely to return following suspension with Cleverley most likely taking up a place on the subs bench.

Furthermore, Koeman may decide to return to his usual 4-2-3-1 formation, after he opted to play three at the back at Stamford Bridge, which went horribly wrong as they conceded three first-half goals.

Winger Deulofeu might start on the right flank with Funes Mori making way, which could see Phil Jagielka and Ashley Williams start at the heart of the club’s defence.

Striker Romelu Lukaku, who has scored seven goals in ten league games, is likely to start up front with the likes of Ross Barkley and Yannick Bolasie supplying the service.

With the possible return of Baines, the Goodison Park faithful will be hoping to see Seamus Coleman start at right-back, so Everton can provide more threat on the flanks.

The Merseyside club are currently seventh in the league table with 18 points from 11 games, while their opponents are struggling in the relegation zone on five points.
