Looks like David Moyes is going for a much younger look for the Carling Cup tie against Huddersfield Town. Jan Mucha and Magaye Gueye are going to replace Howard and Bilyaletdinov in the starting lineup. Seamus Coleman, Jack Rodwell, and Marouane Fellaini will also be starting today. Osman will captain the team, as Arteta is on the bench and Neville is injured.

This will be a great opportunity for the younger players to show us what they got. We also get to see Gueye and Mucha for the first time in actual competitive play (I don't count pre-season). It will be good to see these players against League One competition instead of jumping them straight into top class Premier competition. It's a good way to ease them in.

The tie most likely won't be on any television or stream. I think I have an audio feed, but I am not sure. Whatever I find, I will post it below in the comments.

Time: 8PM BST and 3PM ET

 

Likely Everton Starting XI: Mucha, Coleman, Heitinga, Distin, Baines, Pienaar, Rodwell, Fellaini, Osman, Gueye, Beckford

Likely Huddersfield Town Starting XI: Smithies, Peltier, McCombe, Peter Clark, Naysmith, Croft, Gudjonsson, Johnson, Roberts, Arfield, Robinson
