Predicted Everton Line-up To Face Huddersfield Town In The Premier League
Everton’s rollercoaster season faces another test as they face a relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town. Rooney and co. managed to win a scrappy contest against the Toon last time out, with their 1-0 victory proving to be enough to seal all three points.
Sam Allardyce is under pressure due to his inconsistent results and this match offers a chance for some respite.
Probable Everton XI
Manager: Sam Allardyce
Jordan Pickford (GK)
One of the few bright sparks in Everton’s overall disappointing season, Pickford will continue between the sticks and look to keep a clean sheet against the relegation strugglers.
Seamus Coleman (RB)
Seamus Coleman will look to continue his excellent form of late as he continues to shine post his horrific injury. His last-ditch defensive clearance against Newcastle is bound to do his confidence a world of good.
Michael Keane (RCB)
The former Manchester United youth product will look to fight for a World Cup starting spot in the England national team and needs to play well against Huddersfield.
Phil Jagielka (LCB)
The experienced centre-back has been off-colour for most of the season but should start against Huddersfield and try to recapture his best form.
Leighton Baines (LB)
Another Everton veteran, Baines will look to provide the crosses for Everton’s forwards and link with Bolasie.
Morgan Schneiderlin (DM)
The Frenchman came off against Newcastle with a dead leg but will try to provide defensive cover for Everton’s backline.
Idrissa Gueye (LCM)
Gueye’s trickery and pace will be important as he tries to unlock the opposition’s defence. Pairing him with Rooney will see him curb some of his forward runs.
Wayne Rooney (RCM)
Rooney should continue in his central midfield role as he tries to unleash Theo Walcott and Tosun while also making his runs into the box.
Theo Walcott (RM)
The English winger returned to form with a goal against Newcastle and will look to score this weekend as well.
Yannick Bolasie (LM)
The tricky winger hasn’t been able to light up the league due to injuries but if he gets going, Everton might just end up making merry.
Cenk Tosun (ST)
Having adjusted well to life in England, Tosun would be looking to extend his decent run with the Toffees, as they bid to end the season on a high.
