Kenny To Start; Richarlison To Lead The Line | Predicted 4-2-3-1 Everton Lineup Vs Cardiff City

The current Premier League season is not going as per expected for Everton. What started as a promising season for the Toffees has not turned out the way they had hoped and they have slumped to the 11th position in the league table. However, they will look for a revival when they take on Cardiff City in their next match at Goodison Park.

The Bluebirds, on the other hand, have been bogged down by a number of disappointing results and have failed to make a mark on their return to the top flight. They will also look to take advantage of the inconsistent performance of the Toffees when they lock horns with them tomorrow.

Marco Silva does not have much of a concern in terms of injury. Defender Kurt Zouma will serve a one-match suspension and is not available for selection for the next encounter. Another centre-back Yerry Mina is also not entirely fit for the next match and will be assessed before the game.


Jordan Pickford is not having the best of times in the Premier League and will look to have a better outing against the Bluebirds.


In absence of Kurt Zouma, the onus would be on Michael Keane and Jonjoe Kenny to stabilise the backline for the Toffees. Captain Seamus Coleman would start in his familiar position at the right side of the defence while Lucas Digne would put in a shift from the left. Veteran defender Phil Jagielka might start on the bench.


The midfield is a department which has looked a stronghold for the Toffees this season since the inclusion of Andre Gomes in it. He would be tipped to start once again beside the Senegalese international Idrissa Gueye in the heart of the pitch. 

Starting ahead of them in the midfield would be Gylfi Sigurdsson in the role of the attacking midfielder right behind the striker.


The likes of Bernard and Ademola Lookman would put in their shifts from the right and left sides as the wide attackers. Richarlison would be once again tipped to play as the striker up front and end his goal drought.

Predicted Formation: 4-2-3-1
