Starting Line-up vs Manchester City (A)

The big question is whether Gylfi Sigurdsson will make his Everton debut after finally completing his £45m transfer from Swansea. The Icelandic international is likely to come in on the left hand side of an Everton attack, which will rely on the full backs (Baines and Martina) to provide width as Rooney is likely to support the returning Sandro from the right. Alternatively, Koeman may keep faith with Ademola Lookman and utilise Sigurdsson off the bench.

The defence picks its self after the much improved defensive display in midweek against Hajduk Split with Ashley Williams keeping Phil Jagielka out of the team. The final question is whether Tom Davies returns at the expense of Davy Klaassen, however we expect the Dutchman to receive the nod from the manager.


One thought on “Starting Line-up vs Manchester City (A)

  1. Not sure Sigurdsson will start as he can’t be match-sharp, let alone match-fit. And I don’t think Lookman will start instead because he can seem a bit over-awed by the big occasion. Both on from the bench for me, which means DCL up top for me, Sandro and Rooney either side.
    And I’d probably put Davies in instead of Davy – not sure Klaassen will match the pace tonight!
