The Premier League returns after an almost three month break and with signings, departures and a contract stand-off the Everton starting line-up will look very different from the last day of the 2016/17 season.
Pickford, Keane, Klassaan, Rooney and Sandro will all make their Everton Premier League debuts and Cuco Martina could make it six new boys, although we fully expect Mason Holgate to start at right back. The only other choice is whether Tom Davies, Ademola Lookman or DCL get the nod. We believe Davies will start at the peak of a midfield three featuring Gana and Schniederlin.
In defence Phil Jagielka has certainly had a better pre-season that Ashley Williams and the Everton club captain is set to take to the field wearing the armband.
