Team news, statistics and our verdict for Sunday's action in the Barclays Premier League.Sunday, November 3
Striker Arouna Kone is ruled out for Everton with a knee injury. Defender John Heitinga returns to the squad after sitting out the last two matches with a muscle problem. Fellow centre-back Antolin Alcaraz is recovering well from a hernia injury and is expected to make his debut later this month while midfielder Darron Gibson (knee) is the only other absentee.
Defender Danny Rose has still not recovered from a foot injury and will miss out for Tottenham. Full-back Kyle Naughton has a 50 per cent chance of playing after suffering a thigh injury against Hull on Wednesday in the Capital One Cup. Winger Nacer Chadli (hamstring), striker Emmanuel Adebayor (foot) and defender Zeki Fryers (groin) are out, but winger Andros Townsend is fit after recovering from his nasty fall in last weekend's victory over Hull.

Cardiff manager Malky Mackay has an almost fully fit squad. Craig Bellamy is set to return to the starting line-up and take the captaincy for the Bluebirds while Gary Medel will start his first south Wales derby in midfield. Andreas Cornelius is expected to remain out with an ankle injury but Craig Noone should be available after an ankle problem.
Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has Ashley Williams fit to lead his side but will be without winger Pablo Hernandez. Williams returned from an ankle ligament problem in the draw with West Ham and suffered no reaction from his 90-minute outing but Hernandez has picked up another thigh problem after making his own comeback against the Hammers. Ben Davies will again miss out with his ankle injury, but Jonjo Shelvey has shaken off a hamstring problem.
