Everton travel to the Premier League’s bottom side Hull on Friday looking to build upon their 2-0 win over champions Leicester on Boxing Day.
Goals from Kevin Mirallas and Romelu Lukaku secured a sixth victory of the campaign for Ronald Koeman’s men, and their first on the road since the middle of September.
That was only their second win in their last eight matches, but there are clear signs of improvement from the Toffees, who rose to seventh in the table following their Boxing Day triumph at the King Power Stadium.
And they’ll be confident of getting a result at the KCOM Stadium on Friday, as Mike Phelan’s Hull have lost their last three Premier League matches, and have only won one of their last 16 league games.
The Tigers are bottom of the division and four points adrift of safety after their 3-0 defeat at home to Manchester City on Boxing Day, and Phelan knows that his side have got to start picking up points quickly if they are to retain their Premier League status come May.
In what is likely to be an interesting battle at the KCOM Stadium, Everton boss Koeman could shuffle his pack, especially with a home game against Southampton to come on Monday.
