Mason Holgate has also returned from Injury, meaning the defensive reinforcements have arrived for the Toffees. The first team defenders like Yerry Mina will be on their toes as a bad performance could signal their exit from the starting lineup with Holgate and Godfrey waiting to get back into the side.

Richarlison and Fabian Delph will be the only absentees.
