Everton will take on Salford City at Goodison Park on Wednesday night hoping to pick up a win so that they can book a place in the third round of the EFL Cup. The Toffees will head into this contest on the back of a memorable 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

Carlo Ancelotti is expected to make a whole host of changes to his side and could opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation for this upcoming clash in midweek. However, the Italian tactician might play it safe and name a few first-teamers on the bench just in case he requires their assistance versus the Greater Manchester outfit.

Jordan Pickford could keep his spot in goal for the Toffees after earning a well-deserved clean sheet in his last outing. Jarrad Branthwaite might get a chance to impress alongside Michael Keane at the heart of the Everton defence as they hope to stop the Salford attackers from finding the back of the net in midweek.

Jonjoe Kenny could get a rare start as the right-back while Niels Nkunku might be unleashed on the other side in the left-back position. Both Everton full-backs will get the license to join in on the attack so that they can help the Toffees push on in search of the victory.

Gylfi Sigurdsson will probably get a start alongside Tom Davies at the centre of the park as they look to retain possession well and provide adequate protection for the backline. The promising trio of Bernard, Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott could lineup just ahead of them as part of Ancelotti’s attack.

Both Andre Gomes and Abdoulaye Doucoure will have to settle for a spot on the bench but might come on as a second-half substitute if needed.


Moise Kean will probably get another opportunity to spearhead the Toffees attack from the start. A goal in this game versus Salford on Wednesday would do his confidence a world of good. Dominic Calvert-Lewin might be named on the bench as he awaits his opportunity to shine yet again after scoring the only goal of the game versus Spurs on Sunday.
