Everton are playing at home. But… 6,500 fans will be there to hold them accountable!

So, after just one home win in 11 games, how will Carlo set up his side as they look to make amends?

Who’s Out?

As well as the fans returning, so too will Yerry Mina and Joshua King after a short spells on the sidelines.

That means that Everton’s only absentee is Jean-Philippe Gbamin.

Tactics and Formation

After surprisingly setting up with a back three against bottom of the table Sheffield United, Carlo switched to a supposedly more expansive 4-2-3-1 in the second half, but it had little effect.

It seems most likely that Carlo will return to the a 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 setup that was utilised at the start of the season, though.

In terms of personnel, it’s hard to see many changes for this one as Everton were already at near full strength against the Blades. Mason Holgate will likely lose his place in the side, while Yerry Mina could come in for Michael Keane in order to partner Ben Godfrey.
