Wigan's main problem so far this campaign has been a lack of goals. The Latics have scored just five goals in their opening six games. New signing Kone has contributed two of those goals and was instrumental in their win over Southampton back in August.

The Ivorian netted 17 goals for Spanish side Levante as they secured European qualification, and has already scored twice and notched one assist in the first few weeks of the season.

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez will be hoping that the 28-year-old can discover the form that convinced him to bring the striker to the Premier League, and pull the Latics away from the foot of the table with a win over the high-flying Toffees

K. Mirallas

Position: Attacker

Games: 6

A wide number of players have impressed during Everton's superb start to the season, but while the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Nikica Jelavic have taken the plaudits, new signing Kevin Mirallas has quietly been adapting to life in the Premier League.

The midfielder is one of the current Belgian 'golden generation' that are currently taking European football by storm, and the former Olympiakos man has made a strong start to life on Merseyside, scoring three goals and providing four assists in all competitions.

Everton boss David Moyes has assembled an extremely talented and prolific squad at Goodison Park, and if Mirallas can provide the service for Jelavic and company, then the Wigan defence may be in for a difficult time on Saturday afternoon.

Editor's Prediction

Everton's tremendous start to the campaign has surprised many observers, but although their surge into the top four was not foreseen, it is difficult to envisage Wigan halting their unbeaten run.

Wigan have struggled on the defensive front this season. Roberto Martinez's men have already conceded 11 goals and their porous back line is likely to be exploited by a highly talented group of attacking players.

Expect Jelavic, Fellaini and Mirallas to guide the Toffees to a third consecutive win and maintain their place near the summit of the Premier League table.
