Everton predicted starting XI gallery vs Bournemouth - with whopping 10 changes made
Everton expected team to face AFC Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup third round.
The Toffees prepare for two games against the Cherries as they’re also in action at the Vitality Stadium this weekend.
But Frank Lampard’s full focus will be on the upcoming clash in the cup. It’s been 27 years since Everton last won a piece of silverware and Lampard would etch himself into Goodison folklore if he could end the wait for a trophy.
Still, the Blues boss may be weighing up changes against Bournemouth. In last Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Leicester City, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (hamstring), Idrissa Gana Gueye (thigh) and Amadou Onana (ankle) all suffered setbacks.
In addition, Lampard may see the tie as a chance to give some of his fringe players a chance to put themselves in contention to play at the weekend.
With all that in mind, here’s the Everton team we predict to face Bournemouth.
