Everton’s penultimate preseason friendly is here, and with it comes the prospect of some of the club’s biggest stars getting back onto the pitch. Gylfi Sigurdsson and Idrissa Gueye should see their first action of the season, Theo Walcott is hopefully back from his knock, and Richarlison is expected to debut.

Davy Klaassen will be held out of the fray due to his impending move to Germany, while the statuses of Yannick Bolasie and Ademola Lookman bear watching, too. This is when preparations for Wolves begin to ramp up, so don’t be surprised to see a fairly full strength lineup last more than 45 minutes.
It’s also set to be a judgment day for the likes of Kevin Mirallas, Sandro Ramirez, and Ashley Williams. All three were presupposed to be leaving Finch Farm with the quickness, but all three have played major roles in the preseason so far. It might be that Marco Silva is putting them in the shop window, but I suppose you never know.
