I have to say we were all pleasantly surprised when we seen the team that was chosen for the Wolfsberg game. It was great to put out a very strong line up.

You suspect that the team will be very similar for the Palace game.

We have heard a whisper that Christian Atsu will be given some game time tomorrow. He could start the game in place of Aiden McGeady.

Will Samuel Eto'o start?

Roberto Martinez remembers the Palace result from last season and he doesn't want a repeat.

Roberto said: "You get games that can get a little bit crazy like that. I thought that night we actually played well but then they got three chances from open play and scored twice and then scored from a set play.

"We scored two from open play but you have to say on balance they deserved their win. They did well.

"The next step is that we have the awareness of not conceding from any sort of action and be ourselves in front of goal.

"They frustrated us at Selhurst Park as well and had chances of their own.

"It shows you what a good side they are to only get a point from a potential six.

"It will be a great opportunity for us to show if we learned our lessons and progressed as a team."

Everton from: Howard, Coleman, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Barry, McCarthy, Osman, Eto'o, Lukaku, Robles, Hibbert, Stones, Alcaraz, Gibson, Besic, McGeady, Naismith, Mirallas, Atsu, Pienaar, Eto'o, Browning .

Kipper's Starting XI: Tim, Seamus, Jags, Stonsey, Bainsey, Atsu, Baz, Macca, Super Kev, Naisy, Rom.

What would your starting XI be?

Ian way too gung ho! Gibbo did well when he came on but is no where near ready to start. Same 11 for me and rocket up mcgeadys arse before the game to track back and stop leaving Seamus with 2 men. Eto to come on later.

I reckon Eto'o will start instead of Lukaku, maybe Stonesy at RB if Seamus is still a bit groggy after taking a clattering on Thursday. Either way, a game we have to win - COYB!!

For me this isn't redring anyone but all about rotation. So it's The same back 5, then consider giving Gibbo a start (and ideally Besic but I think it's too soon for that). Then the Geads had a poor game IMO ( though I think this will be HIS season) so bring in Atsu and as Lukakau has the toe injury start Eto who deserves it anyway for his sub appearances. In summary it's. Tim, Seamus, Bainsey, Jags, Stones. Gibbo Barry, Atsu, Mirallas, Nais, Eto
