A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Everton will entertain Rotherham at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon looking to secure a win and seal a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The Toffees are not enjoying the best form as they suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss at home to West Ham United earlier this month.

Carlo Ancelotti will probably opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might make a few changes to his side for this cup encounter at home. Jarrad Branthwaite could get a start as Ancelotti looks to hand Yerry Mina some much-needed rest. James Rodriguez could also get the nod to operate down the right flank as he looks to get some sharpness back in his game.

Robin Olsen will lineup in between the sticks for the Toffees while Jordan Pickford is expected to be rested on the bench. As mentioned earlier, Jarrad Branthwaite could get a chance to impress alongside Michael Keane at the heart of the Everton backline as they look to keep things solid at the back throughout the 90 minutes.

Mason Holgate could be named as a makeshift right-back while Ben Godfrey fills in on the other flank at left-back. Ancelotti will ask both of them to be a bit more adventurous than usual so that they can support the front players from the wide areas.

Yerry Mina and Niels Nkounkou will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.

Andre Gomes and Tom Davies will anchor Ancelotti’s midfield as they focus on dominating the battle at the centre of the park and engineer some decent chances in the Rotherham half. Bernard could keep his place on the left-wing so that he can find some form ahead of the return of Premier League action later this month.

Gylfi Sigurdsson will operate as a free-flowing attacking midfielder while James Rodriguez hopes to weave his magic from the right flank. Richarlison and Anthony Gordon will be available for selection on the Everton bench as they wait for their opportunity to shine as the impact substitutes if Ancelotti calls upon their services.


Dominic Calvert-Lewin has found goals hard to come by in recent weeks, so Ancelotti might name him as his centre-forward in this game in the hopes that the English striker can return to his goal-scoring ways versus the Millers this weekend.
