It's likely that Bryan Oviedo will be missing after picking up a hamstring injury against Young Boys, but Leighton Baines will be back to replace unless Roberto decides to go with Luke Garbutt.

Gareth Barry is suspended so it will be interested to see Mo and Macca paired in the middle of the park.

Ross should get be given the role behind Rom and expect Atsu or Azza to start in place of Kevin Mirallas.   

Roberto said: "We know full well that in our league nothing is given.

"Leicester have been very competitive this season. I don't think the points they have now is a true reflection of what they've done. It's going to be a really difficult game but you don't expect anything different.

"I do feel our group is feeling stronger. I think it's a really important period. February was going to be a really testing month and I feel that we're getting stronger game by game.

"The experiences that we've had already in the previous games will help us to face what I consider a very strong Leicester side.

Everton Squad: Howard, Robles, Griffiths, Alcaraz, Browning, Duffus, Coleman, Gibson, Jagielka, Stones, Lukaku, Naismith, Baines, Distin,  Mirallas, McCarthy, Garbutt, Barkley, Besic, Barry, Atsu, Lennon.

Kipper's Starting XI: Howard, Coleman, Stones, Jagielka, Baines, Besic, McCarthy, Barkley, Naismith, Atsu, Lukaku. 

What would your starting XI be?

Touch wood, hopefully today we can reintroduce the prem to what we were all about last season. I really want Mo and Macca in the middle to impress as a pair today as well and set a benchmark for the rest of the season. COYB!!!!!!

perfect game to try all these young midfielders and wingers together for the 1st time. Regardless of how good they all look on paper, Atsu and Lennon with Mac and Mo in the Middle could prove too much a culture shock for Everton normally but then there's nothing normal about Everton this season so for all we know, it could be a special game against the Foxes
