Look's like both teams going 4-4-2 here, interesting considering last season's game both saw us revert to 4-5-1, can we expect an open game today? I had a dream Everton won 1-0, Victor Anichebe off the bench! Good luck

no changes then in the starting 11...disappointed not to see little at least named on the bench - having a chat with my cousin yesterday we both thought that starting with little might give us the chance to get off to a flyer, even if he only last 45 minutes as he does have the ability to deliver a ball, which we have been lacking!

Think he has gone 3-5-2 IMHO. Kaboul, Distin & Campbell as a back 3, with GJ & Traore as wing-backs.. I really think HR wants to give it a go, and means it when he says "Younes is here to play". Adams & Sol are known to be against wing-backs - not surprisingly due to the success of the back 4, "arms up-offside" and playing it all of their lives - but the lack of width has been a problem - and I think HR sees this as the best compromise. This time (unlike last season), they have given in..?

i think thats a 4-4-2 with distin as left back in all honesty. I would have loved to play 3-5-2 last season, and once again, this season, i think that it would give our team a lot more balance - but due to sol and tony being so against it, I doubt harry will have the guts to try it...

i like the thought of 3-5-2 - and that is what we have gone i believe, we have kaboul who has pace, so this can work...

3-5-2 for me, I reckon Jonno is going to play more wing than back
