Cardiff are also enjoying their best run of the season so far, and have won two of their last four Premier League fixtures.
Last time out Sol Bamba scored an injury-time winner to ensure they beat Brighton 2-1. That result moved them up to 18th, and the Bluebirds could climb out of the relegation zone if they can get a result on Merseyside.

Squads & Team News
|Goalkeepers||Pickford, Stekelenburg, Hewelt|
|Defenders||Holgate, Baines, Keane, Zouma, Jagielka, Digne, Mina, Coleman, Browning, Kenny|
|Midfielders||Gomes, Sigurdsson, Walcott, McCarthy, Gueye, Schneiderlin, Bernard, Davies, Dowell, Baningime|
|Forwards||Tosun, Niasse, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Lookman|
Gylfi Sigurdsson, Andre Gomes and Ademola Lookman are all expected to be fit for Saturday’s game, despite being unavailable for their respective countries during the international break.
Sigurdsson did not travel with the Iceland squad due to an ankle issue, while Gomes and Lookman were both sent home early.
The trio’s availability means Silva should have a full-strength squad to select from.
Confirmed Everton XI: Pickford, Coleman, Keane, Mina, Digne; Gomes, Sigurdsson, Gueye; Walcott, Bernard, Richarlison
Subs: Stekelenburg, Baines, Zouma, Tosun, Davies, Calvert-Lewin, Lookman
|Position||Cardiff City squad|
|Goalkeepers||Etheridge, Smithies, Murphy|
|Defenders||Peltier, Bennett, Morrison, Manga, Connolly, Cunningham, Bamba|
|Midfielders||Arter, Ralls, Murphy, Gunnarsson, Damour, Camarasa, Harris, Hoilett|
|Forwards||Ward, Paterson, Reid, Madine|
Harry Arter returns for the Bluebirds after missing the recent win against Brighton through suspension.
Defender Sean Morrison is also in line to start for Neil Warnock’s side despite suffering from a broken nose which forced him to be withdrawn in Cardiff’s previous game.
Gary Madine is expected to be included in the squad as he steps up his recovery from injury. Both he and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing were on target for the Under-23 side during the international break, but the game has likely come too early for the latter, who hasn’t played since August with a knee problem.
Kenneth Zohore remains unavailable with a calf injury, while Jazz Richards looks unlikely to be fit for selection.
Confirmed Cardiff XI: Etheridge, Manga, Morrison, Bamba, Cunningham; Arter, Ralls, Gunnarsson, Paterson, Gunnarsson, Camarasa, Harris
Subs: Smithies, Peltier, Bennett, Ward, Murphy, Decordova-Reid, Hoilett
Betting & Match Odds
Everton are heavy favourites for the game and can be backed at 2/5 by bet365 . An away win is priced at 17/2, while a draw is 15/4.
Saturday’s game will be just the third time that Cardiff have travelled to Goodison Park in 55 years, and the Bluebirds haven’t won there since 1926.
When they last met on Merseyside, Seamus Coleman scored an injury-time winner to ensure Everton gained all three points.
Silva may be hoping for a slightly more comfortable afternoon this time around. The Toffees have a good record against the sides near the foot of the table, and have won three out of four this season against the current bottom five.
For Cardiff, they know if they are to survive relegation they must continue winning matches, as they did against Brighton.
It is also a crucial time of the season for the Bluebirds, who after their trip to the north west, face just one of the current top half in their next six games.
