Tomorrow afternoon Everton host Luton Town at Goodison Park in a match that they surely must win to build on and extend their current winning streak.
The Blues have won their last two away fixtures scoring three goals at Brentford and two more at Aston Villa on Wednesday night to finally get their season off the ground.
Now, Everton must show they can translate that form away from Goodison and reproduce something similar at the Grand Old Lady.
Facing the Premier League strugglers who are without a win yet since promotion to the top flight, is the perfect chance to do so.
So, who should Sean Dyche pick ans how should that team line up tomorrow afternoon?
Here is my selection:
A no-brainer of course, as the Everton and England number one continues to excel this season, making important saves in the last two wins as well.
Another straight forward decision and a player who despite a few wobbles has generally continued to be a consistent rock in the heart of the Toffees defence.
A player I have long advocated should be in the team and fast becoming a fixture in the centre of defence. Branthwaite has hugely impressed with his all-round defensive ability, maturity and composure since finally getting his chance this season.
Back in the side after some erratic form earlier this season had seen him replaced by Ashley Young. The young Scot has been better recently and should continue at right-back.
The Ukrainian has returned from injury and looked solid enough in the last two games, defending stoutly although he doesn’t offer a great deal going forward.
Garner is becoming undroppable with superb dispays in midfield both in a wide and central position against Brentford and Villa respectively. He has an assist and a goal now too.
The big money summer 2022 signing was also excellent alongside Garner on Wednesday (is he finding some long overdue consistency?) and I would keep that combination as the two linked up effectively with Onana providing the pass for Garner’s goal at Villa Park.
Although it is nominally a 4-3-3 formation, Doucoure should be pushing forward as much a possible to support the forwards as he did so well at Brentford.
After starting against Villa, I would stick with the on-loan Leeds United forward on the right of the attack. Harrison is skillfull, creative and threatening and his ability to cut inside offers a good additional attacking option for Everton.
McNeil comes back on the left, and his quality delivering balls from out wide as well as the additional goal threat last season’s top scorer offers, will be welcome.
While summer signing Beto has been solid enough offering physicality and a good focal point, he hasn’t yet scored. Meanwhile, Calvert-Lewin has been sharp and dynamic in the away wins, has two goals and looks back to his best so should start for me.
That would be the eleven I would pick, let’s see who lines up when Dyche announces his team shortly before 3 pm tomorrow.
