We have two league games before the FA Cup replay so it will be difficult to predict what kind of side David Moyes will pick. After all the discussions that have gone on since the derby defeat and then the draw against Sunderland, you would think it would be wise for Everton to get some momentum before the FA Cup game comes along.

With that in mind I hope that David Moyes plays what he believes is his strongest side. Unfortunately Moyesy will not be able to call on Jack, Seamus and Gibbo.

I think Jelly is a must to play with Tim as support. I know that Royston got a bit of stick against Sunderland but I would still play him and Peanuts should go on the other flank. I would expect Felli and Ossie to do the middle roles.

I think the back four will be the same as what started the Sunderland game.

Steve Round said: "Jack Rodwell is a doubt. He may have a fitness test tomorrow, we'll just see how he wakes up in the morning.

Seamus Coleman is also a doubt because he's got a slight thigh strain and again he'll be touch and go for tomorrow. Both should be expected to be fit for the weekend.

Everybody else is okay. Darron Gibson's just not quite made it yet. He's had his first bit of training today and he'll come into contention after tomorrow.

Kipper's Starting XI: Tim, Phil, Johnny, Sylvain, Bainsey, Royston, Felli, Ossie, Peanuts, Tim and Jelly.

Who would you pick?

Brucey agree, and he can't play infront of Bainsey as he cramps his style and doesn't give him the ball early enough. Must put Peanuts there and Drenthe on the other side. Hopefully RD has learnt from Saturday and needs to stay on his feet more. He'll have ups and downs but we need more consistency.

Team is about right. Royston on the left, Peanuts on the right. Here's hoping 1-0 COYB!

I think that would be my team as well. Seamus hasnt looked fit since returning from injury....COYB

Is it just me, or does anyone think that Royston has a bad effect on the team with his sulking and moanining during the game? And the shitty step over he trys everytime he gets the ball, and then loses it.

I would play our strongest team against the arse as its at Goodison and we have a chance to win and rest the players on Saturday against probably the hardest away ground in the prem were we will get passed off the pitch. There is a derby semi at stake lads so lay off Moyes on Saturday when he plays a weakened team at a ground we will probably get hammered. Lets get behind the lads and beat Arsenal today. COYB
