Everton at Fulham: Gamethread

Ian Walton

Everton travel to Craven Cottage for this midweek cup tie. Roberto Martinez has said he will be taking the League Cup seriously, but it is hard to believe he won't be playing a few of the youngsters and fringe players with the hopes of giving them some experience. Hopefully this time the strategy will work a bit better than it did our first time out in the Capital One Cup. If I had to guess I'd say John Stones is likely to be in defense and Joel Robles will deputize Tim Howard in goal. With the number of injuries, we could see Barry and McCarthy as the men in the midfield, and we all hope Naismith will be resting on the bench for this one. Join us below to talk all about the midweek action. The official Everton site has a radio stream, but I don't know of any tv or online feeds.

Everton XI: Robles, Gibson, Heitinga, Oviedo, Deulofeu, Naismith, Distin, McCarthy, Lukaku, Coleman, Stones

Everton Bench: Baines, Jagielka, Jelavic, Mirallas, Barry, Barkley, Howard
