    Everton Football Club (nicknamed The Toffees and The Blues) are a professional football club based in Liverpool, England. Everton were founded as St Domingo FC in 1878 so that members of the congregation of St Domingo Methodist New Connexion Chapel in Breckfield Road North, Everton could play sport year round – cricket was played in summer. The club's first game was a 1–0 victory over Everton Church Club. The club was renamed Everton in November 1879 after the local area, as people outside the congregation wished to participate. The club was a founding member of the Football League in 1888–89 and won their first League Championship title in the 1890–91 season. Everton won the FA Cup for the first time in 1906 and the League Championship again in 1914–15. The outbreak of the First World War in 1914 interrupted the football programme while Everton were champions, which was something that would again occur in 1939.

    It was not until 1927 that Everton's first sustained period of success began. In 1925 the club signed Dixie Dean from Tranmere Rovers. In 1927–28, Dean set the record for top-flight league goals in a single season with 60 goals in 39 league games, which is a record that still stands. He helped Everton win their third League Championship that season. Everton's second successful era started when Harry Catterick was made manager in 1961. In 1962–63, his second season in charge, Everton won the League Championship. In 1966 the club won the FA Cup with a 3–2 win over Sheffield Wednesday. Everton again reached the final in 1968, but this time were unable to overcome West Bromwich Albion at Wembley. Two seasons later in 1969–70, Everton won the League Championship, finishing nine points clear of nearest rivals Leeds United. During this period, Everton were the first English club to achieve five consecutive years in European competitions – covering the seasons from 1961–62 to 1966–67.

    All in all, Everton have won 15 major trophies: the League Championship nine times (fourth most as of 2017–18), the FA Cup five times (ninth most) and the UEFA Cup Winners Cup once. The club have also competed in the top division for a record 114 seasons, missing the top division only four times (1930–31 and three consecutive seasons starting with 1951–52). Everton have play their homes games at Goodison Park since 1892, after moving from Anfield following a row over its rent. Their biggest rivals are neighbors Liverpool, against whom they contest the Merseryside Derby.

    Team should be...

    -----------------De Gea-----------------
    --Lindelof--Maguire--Shaw--
    AWB---Fred---Matic---Williams
    ---------------Fernandes---------------
    ---Greenwood---Ighalo---

    Subs: Romero, Bailly, McTominay, Mata, James, Lingard, Andreas

    I assume Martial will miss the game, a win would be huge but I expect our usual defeat there

    The fact that Williams didn't play against both Watford & Club Brugge, I think we will start him in this game with 352 formation.

    DDG
    Lindelof Maguire Shaw
    Bissaka Fred Matic Williams
    Bruno
    James Martial
    Going to be tough game. Both Richarlison & Calvert Lewin are very dangerous duo up front.

    We've been good recently but I'm expecting dropped points here. Still feel Europa League is the best chance of Champions League qualification.

    Bruno worries me. Our defence is shite against teams that play defence splitting passes like he can when he's on it. Especially if we persist with a 4-4-2 with Gylfi as one of the midfield 2. I'd expect a draw since we are at home but wouldn't be surprised if we lost it either. You're in great form and we don't have many games under our belt recently like yourselves so we might not be as sharp. With Richarlison and DCL up top though I always believe we will score at least one now so could be a fun game with lots of goals.

    If we don't have Bruno, I would agree with you. But Bruno has made the difference which increase our chance to win a match now whenever he plays in that no 10 role. When your playmaker is Bruno instead of Lingard & Pereira, the difference is day & night. It's still going to be tough game against Everton away. I won't be surprised if we drop points but nowdays, but ever since we signed Bruno, I feel like we can win every match against any sides outside top 6.

    Tough game. Win it and I'll genuinely start to think we are challenging for top 4......

    Draw wouldnt be awful, they're a good side with Ancelotti and away to Everton is always tough. Hope we can grind out a win, would be big. Would do:
    Martial
    James Bruno Greenwood
    Fred Matic
    Shaw Maguire Bailly Wan Bissaka
    De Gea
    But can see a back 3 or 5, with Williams in and one of James/Greenwood out (probably James, so we have a front 2 of Greenwood and Martial, Bruno behind).

    Ole's first real test. The football gods will have us matched up with Wolves again or traveling to Istanbul for the next EL round and this will be weighing heavily on his mind.

    Bruno, on the other hand, will be sprinkling more of his magic pixie dust on the squad, endowing upon them more courage to make runs behind the lines into space to take quality shots.

    I can see is going with 3-5-2 for this one, regardless of martial being out or not.

    Williams and AWB flanking a 3 man CB pairing and a midfield of matic, Fred and bruno.

    Feel we might need the extra protection of a 3 man defence, owing the threat Everton pose from their strikers.

    Watching them agaisnt Arsenal last week Ancelotti went for it and what was on show was two poor defenses and basically they lost the shootout, I doubt with his experience he will approach us the same way, I expect them to play deep and defensive and try to utilize the counter.

    Hopefully Martial is fit to start and while I'd like to keep Mata in given his link-up with Bruno I feel we need to switch system to deal with ourleft side issue and I can't see Ole playing Bruno deeper with Mata in the 10 as it'll be either McTominay or Matic with Fred.

    Lindelof and Matic will probably start but this is what I'd go with.

    After wins against Chelsea and Watford, and this being the first game of a tough run, a win would be a great milestone and the first legitimate 'turned a corner' evidence all season as it would happen with fernandes mctominay coming in.

    Last years defeat here should be oles team talk. Do everything exactly opposite.

    More likely Ighalo will play instead of Martial.
    He'll be sharper for yesterday's run out and a bit more confident after scoring.

    Can see Matic in there

    Can you use it in a sentence?
    This 5 man defence with Shaw and Williams is so unnecessary. Williams hasn't quite figured out that role and just seems drowned out by Shaw. In the upturn of form for Shaw this really seems a no-brainer for me to move away from that. Even during the win at Chelsea. we were a man down in.offence and struggled to create chances.

    DDG

    AWB
    Shaw
    Maguire
    Bailly

    McT
    Fred
    Bruno

    James
    Greenwood
    Martial - if fit

    A lot of confidence in the team at the moment. Everton are looking good too - we're unlucky on the weekend.

    Expect an evenly matched contest with the individual battles making the difference.

    They were unlucky because Arsenal's defence is shit apart from Saka, and Auba is in a different class. It flattered Arsenal but let's not over rate Everton

    Ole better not kill us with 3-5-2. He should just stick to a 4231 like the players are used to. All that tinkering stuff confuses our players like we’ve seen in the past.

    Lets not go 3 at the back, it doesn’t suit us.

    AWB - Bailly - Maguire - Shaw
    McTominay - Fred

    Can't see us winning this. Would be more confident against City.
    I can see us winning. They’ll be up for it but we are full of confidence after good wins.
    Everton are hugely overrated due to the Carlo factor but they are not a good side.

    I thought he was taken off because he was playing rubbish.
    He was doing the defensive work well though. Less effective going forward but compared to the hopeless Chong he was ok.

    I have a feeling he’ll be used to track Everton’s wide players.

    My tea leaves are telling me we'll dick Everton this weekend! Never argue with the tea leaves.

    The team actually look like they're enjoying playing football and gaining some much needed self belief.

    We'll dick them. Tea leaves.

    I actually thought Chong was more effective than James, so there you go.
    The better of two poor players then.

    What’s clear is that neither should be starters. I doubt if Chong will be around anyway;he clearly believes he’s better than he is.
