The Bluebirds have begun the Premership season with a bang and the Scottish manager will be hoping that they can claim another big name scalp as they welcome ex Swansea City manager Roberto Martinez’s Everton side to the City of Cardiff Stadium.

The Toffees have had a slow start to the Premier League campaign.

Draws away to Norwich and at home to West Brom see’s Roberto Martinez side sit 14th in the table. The Toffee’s will head into the game after a tough midweek Capital One encounter with Stevenage with an extra time goal from Marouane Fellaini sealing a narrow 2-1 win.

Martinez rested a number of his stars for the game but with the likes of Fellaini, Seamus Coleman and Sylvain Distin all coming off the bench the former Wigan manager will hoping that early season fatigue does not kick in against the Premier League newcomers.

Darron Gibson and Antolin Alcaraz are once again missing for Everton while Martinez will also hoping that Fellaini and Leighton Baines, the subject of interest from Manchester United, can remain focused on the clash.

On loan Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu could make his first Premier League star after impressing midweek with a goal while Arouna Kone could get his first start ahead of the misfiring Nikica Jelavic.

Cardiff meanwhile followed up their confidence boosting win over City with a 2-0 win over Accrington Stanley midweek although the win was marred somewhat with summer signing Andreas Cornelius picking up an ankle injury that rules him out of Saturday’s game.

The last time these two teams met Cardiff were the victors running out 1-0 winners in the league cup 23 years ago with the result providing some semblance of revenge following an 8-3 hammering in a league game back in 1962. How we would all love to see another 11 goals thriller.

This one kicks off at the Cardiff City Stadium at 15:00 GMT.
