It look like Rom will be fit to play against his old team and he will be desperate to put in a great performance.
Expect Samuel Eto'o to start on the bench. Have Everton ever had a stronger squad to have subs of such star quality?
It will be a tossup between Aiden or Ossie to replace the injured Peanuts.
Roberto said: "I think Rom has found a very strong inner motivation - I don't think he is motivated by who he is facing. I think it has been more about his role and status at Everton.
"He is a vital player for us and I think he is enjoying that. He has embraced it.
"I feel we are going to see the best of Rom this season. We are really excited about his performances in all competitions - not because he is facing a former club."
