It's been more than two weeks since we last saw Everton take the field and, surprising or not, a lot has happened. Romelu Lukaku and his father have ignited rumors of his summer departure. And the continued poor performances from the club have increased the regularity of talk that the likes of John Stones and Ross Barkley may join Lukaku in heading for the exit. It's time for actual football and no more talk.
It's a match-up of managers on the hot seat at Old Trafford. Some have reported that Manchester United's Louis Van Gaal may make way for Jose Mourinho following the season. And just about every Toffee supporter has lost their patience with Roberto Martinez at the helm of their club. Three points here could prove crucial to either head man. United must win to stay in contention for the top four. Everton could stand to prove that they are able to compete with the big clubs in the regular season.
Despite how inconsistent the performances have been for the Blues, Martinez has repeatedly stuck with a very similar starting XI. With the FA Cup as the real prize left to win this season, it would be nice to see the manager mix things up a bit here. Maybe give Gerard Deulofeu another run in the squad. Finally have Oumar Niasse start a match perhaps? Anything to break up the stale-ness of EFC's football lately.
