    Look where the Eb, F and G notes are on the B string.
    Make a D chord shape (for DGBE) with the Eb note on the B string (fret 4?). Just hold the shape and slide it up to where the F note (fret 5?) and G (fret 7?) note is on the B string. If you can't reach the D string, just play the GBE strings. The progression is a bridge according to the first post so the ascending chords may fit in nicely and you can make the last F 3211 to get back to the first five frets in the verse.
    Or drop an Em chord down a fret and only play strings 345

    The progression is not Eb F G F. It is F G F Eb.
