UEFA Cup: Everton vs. Zenit St. Petersburg

The News: Tim Howard and Everton take on Zenit St. Petersburg in a UEFA Cup Group A match on Wednesday.

Of Note: Everton have a few injury doubts ahead of the match, namely Tim Howard who is under the weather with the flu. With eight games coming up in the next 24 days, manager David Moyes may not want to risk his starting goalkeeper. In the bizarre format of the UEFA Cup, the top three teams qualify from five in the group, and the Toffees currently top the table in Group A. As such, Everton needs only one point from its last three games to progress to the next round.

Up Next: As usual, the game kicks off at 2:30 p.m. ET. Read a match preview here, and follow text updates at UEFA.com.
