Vitaliy Mykolenko continues to grow in confidence


Right wing back: Alex Iwobi

Alex Iwobi has also been one of the stars of this relegation fight as he continues to impress in every game with his commitment and clarity, even while playing as a right wing back. Lampard has unlocked the best version of Iwobi and he will be hoping that the Nigerian will continue racking up such high level performances in the remaining games of the season.

Centre back: Seamus Coleman

Seamus Coleman has led a spirited Everton and continues to be an influential figure on and off the pitch. Coleman will have an interesting battle with Yoane Wissa who has netted six goals this season.

Centre back: Michael Keane

With Yerry Mina injured and running the risk of missing the remaining three games, Michael Keane will partner Mason Holgate and Seamus Coleman in central defence. The Englishman was cool headed and sound against Watford while also offering aerial threat in the attack through set-pieces. Keane should build upon his strong showing at Vicarage Road. A tough test waits against Ivan Toney.

Centre back: Mason Holgate

With Godfrey still unavailable, Holgate will retain his spot in the starting lineup. The former Barnsley man has hit a purple patch in his season after a series of nervy and unreliable performances. Holgate has performed well when he sticks to the basics instead of overcomplicating his job. The recent run of good form will give him a confidence boost to face the likes of Toney and Bryan Mbuemo.

Left wing back: Vitaliy Mykolenko

Vitaliy Mykolenko is a rising star of this Everton side. The Ukrainian is putting in brilliant shift every game and is quickly becoming a fan favourite. Mykolenko is enjoying the freedom of joining the attack while his athleticism allows him to cover a lot of ground and take care of his defensive chores too.
