Frank Lampard has decided to do a complete overhaul for the Carabao Cup game today.
Everton are back in action tonight after a disappointing home loss on Saturday against Leicester City who have now leapfrogged the Toffees in the table after a pretty miserable start to their own season.
Lampard’s insistence on going back to the 4-3-3 despite the success of the 4-2-3-1 just the week before continues to boggle the mind, and hopefully the manager has learned some lessons before the Blues get dragged back down into a relegation battle once again.
Today however the Blues will be looking to get a Cup run continuing before the season goes into a World Cup enforced early winter break, with a Carabao Cup Third Round game against AFC Bournemouth on the south coast.
It’ll be hard to predict whether Lampard will make a raft of changes to take on the fellow Premier League side or else he’ll stick with the spine of the team that played over the weekend.

The Blues last visited the Vitality during the 2019-20 season, losing to their hosts 3-1 while Marco Silva was still in charge with Dominic Calvert-Lewin getting the only goal. Interestingly, the two sides met back in 1985-86 in what was then known as the Football League Milk Cup in the two-legged second round, with the Toffees winning 3-2 at home and then 2-0 at the Cherries,
