Oh, shit. Everton were already in a rough patch of form with James in their side. Without him they aren't nearly as dangerous. That's their best attacking player out and both starting fullbacks.

Continuing with the 4-3-3 with Abraham and Werner flanking Giroud was laughable. 

Remember when we had a fit Pulisic after the restart last season? For a significant number of games? Good times...

Our bogey ground. 1 win in the last 5. But I feel Everton is not so good last couple of weeks so it is all in our hands.

Mendy, Chilwell, Silva, Zouma, James, Kante, Kovacic, Mount :wub:, Pulisic, Werner, Giroud. Our defense will be tested more than ever this season.

As mentioned by Simon Johnson on The Athletic podcast, it feels like form goes out of the window whenever we play Everton at Goodison Park. We have played them a few times there over the years when they were on a bad run of form but we came out unstuck more often than not, as our poor record suggests. Moreover, this will be Everton's first home game with fans being allowed back.

Last season was an absolutely terrible timing :lol: They were soooo poor under Silva and on the plate for us! But they said no no no, gave it to Ferguson and I remember the stats that the players made the most tackles in god knows how many years :lol:

Anyway, happy to see Carlo again but hoping to see him lose to Frank again.

When we go there on form we tend to do the business, hopefully this is the case again.

The last time we went there when in form, we ended up with a 0-0 draw against Big Sam's Everton.

They will run their socks off, they will hassle and defend deep, they will have their fans back as Jason mentioned, the ref will do shocking stuff to us etc, it will be a battle. But we can overcome that if we are clinical and resolute.

One of the games that could define our season.First Goodison’s game with fans back really does mean business.

Our most creative player is injured and his only back-up too which most probably means that Puli will be RW and Timo LW.But we are on form and no matter what the starting line-up is,we can win it.

Because of that Carlo changed to 3-4-3 lately with Iwobi as RWB and Delph played LWB last game but also got injured. I think James, Richarlison and DCL will be biggest test for our defense this season so far.

Plus did we played against this system this season? Last season we struggled if I remember correctly.

Should take advantage again especially with their best full backs out of commission. They are the best contributors to their attack., and their absence is the main reason for their makeshift defense

Pulisic is so unreliable, he is a ticking timebomb waiting to get injured. We should look at giving CHO more opportunities once he's fit, or getting another winger.

It's all about taking James out of the game. Almost everything positive they do starts with him. We cut off the supply to their strikers and they're useless. Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin aren't going to dribble through our team and score worldies.

Stop James from playing through balls and don't let give away silly free kicks around our box for him to line up a shooting chance. Do that and I think we win comfortably.

Mount, Kante, and whoever the third midfielder is will be the keys.

Goodison Park has always been a horrible place to go and will be something a bit different for our lads playing in front of away supporters again, but I think this should be a good time to play Everton. They don't look the same side they did a month ago.

I would have Kante, Mount and Kova as the midfield three as I think they will overrun the Everton midfield. Werner and Giroud and then one of Havertz or Pulisic. To be honest both need managing somewhat still, so can be rotated between each other for this and midweek.
