All the Premier League action from Goodison ParkEmail nick.ames@theguardian.com or tweet @NickAmes82 1.44pm BST Marco Silva (is he any good or not? We still don’t know) speaks:“Every time we change something we expect a good answer for the players. It’s more about collective work than one or two players, we have to create chances as a team for them to score goals. The last game was not what we expect, not the best game for us, but the first 25 minutes of how we started against Villa is how we have to start here. We always want more, me as a manager and we as a club, and this afternoon is a good opportunity for us to get three points.” 1.42pm BST Not a brilliant omen.3 - Everton’s three Premier League games this season have seen a league-low three goals scored, with the Toffees having the joint-worst attack (1 goal) and the joint-best defence (2 goals conceded) in the competition. Conflicting. pic.twitter.com/EqTdLxOPy6 1.25pm BST While we savour all that, join Alex Hess for the rest of Rangers v Celtic. The Bhoys currently lead the Old Firm derby 1-0!

Calvert-Lewin, Schneiderlin and Bernard are the benched casualties of the no-show at Villa Park.Wolves rotate, of course, after Thursday’s win over Torino.

Subs: Holgate, Calvert-Lewin, Tosun, Schneiderlin, Sidibe, Bernard, Stekelenburg.Wolves: Rui Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Traore, Dendoncker, Neves, Saiss, Ruben Vinagre, Jimenez, Cutrone. Subs: Vallejo, Pedro Neto, Gibbs-White, Jota, Jonny, Ruddy, Joao Moutinho. 12.59pm BST Here’s your appetiser for the north London derby – or your main if you support either of these two – and it’s not a bad one. It’s a bit like having a lovely plate of seared scallops before you get onto the steak; there’s every chance it could be the highlight of the meal. It’s a clash of the upper-middle, the hopefuls who think they can put pressure on the established top-six order, two serious teams with serious managers and some serious talent on the pitch too.It’s only flickered so far. Wolves have three draws from three and that’s fine, but a win here would prove there’s nothing to worry about in terms of Europa League hangovers and so forth. Everton began well but were very disappointing in their defeat at Aston Villa – I wonder if we’ll see more of Moise Kean and Alex Iwobi, who both livened things up there and starred in the League Cup win at Lincoln, today.
