    Everton to end great season with victory as prepare for FA Cup final

    Probable Lineups:

    EvertonHullHull City (4-4-2): Harper, Elmohamady, Davies, Bruce, Figueroa, Sagbo, Huddlestone, Quinn, Boyd, Jelavic, Long

    With 100% safety from relegation, Hull City will want to play a safe game as they still have an important FA Cup final against Arsenal still to come. Steve Bruce could rest a few key plays as he could make a few changes to the squad that faced Manchester United a few days ago. The manager could revert back to a 4-4-2 formation with David Meyler, Liam Rosenior, and Robert Koren looking to make way. In their place, Yannick Sagno, Tom Huddlestone, and Nikica Jelavic could all make a return to the side. Steve Harper could also be called back into his usual number one role between the sticks in place of Eldin Jakupovic who played the entire match in midweek.

    Everton (4-2-3-1): Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, McCarthy, Barry, Deulofeu, Barkley, Naismith, Lukaku

    Although Everton missed out on the Champions League spot, they have now guaranteed the Europa League with a fifth place finish this season. Roberto Martinez will now begin to think about future transfer as he heads into the final game of the league. The manager will make a few changes to the side which played Manchester City last Saturday with up to about four changes. Sylvain Distin returns back into the side in place of John Stones with Gareth Barry also returning in front of the back four in place of Leon Osman. Antolin Alcaraz who was part of a three man back line will lose his place to a more attacking Gerard Deulofeu. Kevin Mirallas and Bryan Oviedo are all set to miss the match through injury while Steven Pienaar is still a doubt though he could still make the substitute bench.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

    Remember this?

    When Hull City met Everton at Goodison Park earlier this season, super-sub Steven Pienaar scored the winning goal after just 10 seconds of being on the field with the final score ending 2-1 in favour of the Toffees.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Barkley

    Ross Barkley could show yet another sensational performance against a Hull City side with nothing to lose. The 20-year-old midfielder recently scored a beautiful goal against Manchester City last weekend and hopefully we can witness more of the same in his final Premier League match of the campaign.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Hull City vs. Everton: An Alternative Preview

    Hull City have lost five of their last eight Barclays Premier League home games (W2 D1).

    Nikica Jelavic scored 16 goals in 59 Barclays Premier League appearances for Everton before moving to Hull City in January.

    Hull City have failed to score in their two previous Premier League matches on the final day of the season.

    The Tigers have already achieved their highest points tally in a single Premier League season (37).

    Everton’s 69 point tally is their best in a single Premier League season, beating their previous highest of 65 in 2007-08. A win in this game will give them their best total since winning the title in 1986-87 (86).

    13 of Everton’s goals this season have come from defenders; a league-high.

    Everton have won five of their last six Premier League games played on a Sunday (L1).

    If only the second half of Premier League games counted this season, Hull City would be bottom of the league by two points.

    Only Cardiff (12) have won fewer points than Hull City (14) in the Premier League in 2014 (Norwich also have 14).

    Hull City have never won a Premier League game in the month of May (P8 W0 D3 L5).
