How will Everton line up for this one?

Just when it seemed Everton may actually been on course for a decent season without a relegation battle, the powers that be decided otherwise.

We can expect a peak level of Goodison Park ferociousness on Sunday given the spotlight on the fan protests over the ten-point deduction, but how will Dyche line up his Blues against visiting Manchester United?

Who’s Out?

Amadou Onana will miss this one due to a calf issue he’s struggling to shake. He should return within the next couple of weeks, though.

Seamus Coleman is now fit and available following six months out with a knee injury. He played the full 90 minutes (along with Ben Godfrey and Michael Keane) in Everton under-21s 1-0 win over Athletic Club in midweek.

That means the only other absentees are Dele and Andre Gomes, with both described as now “back training on the grass”.


Goalkeepers: Pickford, Virginia, Lonergan,

Defenders: Keane, Godfrey, Branthwaite, Tarkowski, Mykolenko, Coleman, Patterson, Young

Midfielders: Doucoure, Onana (INJURED), Gueye, Garner, Onyango, Gomes (INJURED), Dele (INJURED)

Wingers: McNeil, Danjuma, Dobbin, Harrison

Attackers: Calvert-Lewin, Beto, Chermiti

Tactics and Formation

The Blues were bang in form ahead of the international break, so I’m not expecting anything to really change in terms of setup.

The one change from the Crystal Palace game that will definitely happen will be Idrissa Gueye taking the place of the injured Onana.

Apart from that, I think it will be the same line up, although there is a chance Seamus Coleman could be thrown back in at the expense of Young.

Starters (likelihood of starting rated out of 10)

Jordan Pickford – 10/10

Ashley Young – 6/10

Vitalii Mykolenko - 9/10
