Ossie To Start
Ossie To Start

John Stones will be fit after missing the mid week Europa game with illness. Also back in the squad will Aaron Lennon who was ineligible against Dynamo.

Bainsey will have a late fitness test, but still missing will be Tony Hibbert, Bryan Oviedo, Steven Pienaar and Aiden McGeady.

Stonsey will probably replace the Birdman and I expect Azza to come in for the ineffective Kevin Mirallas.

The big question is will Ross start? After Thursday Ossie has a really good chance to start the game.

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, Gibson, McCarthy, Osman, Naismith, Lennon, Lukaku. 

What would your starting XI be?

Sorry about putting Gareth Barry in. As pointed out, he is suspended. I'd give Gibbo a game from the start.

Robles Coleman, Garbutt, Jags, Stones Besic, Mccarthy, Barkley, Naisy kone, lukaku 4-4-2, needs to change formation in the prem, but he won't as he hasn't got a clue what he's doing!!!

RM has got to play Naismith down the middle. It doesn't work having him, or Barkley, out wide. I would therefore give Mirallas and Lennon a go. Will bring much needed width and added pace. He'll play Bainsey at left back, which is a shame because Garbutt has been very good - he picks on reputation rather than form, unfortunately.

Which ever eleven he picks I just hope Howard isn't one of them.

Howard,Coleman,jags,stones, Garbutt,McCarthy,gibbo,besic, Lennon,Rom,Atsu Baines needs to work for his place and Mirallas is a total idiot never want to see him play again for us

I think we should play: Howard Stones, Jagielka Baines Coleman Besic Gibson Barkley Naismith Kone Lukaku Playing a back four, but with the wingbacks, Besic and Gibson holding in midfield, Barkley and Naismith as Attacking midfielders and Kone and Lukaku up front.
Phil, runcorn, 8:30 AM 15/03/2015
Joel Robles should start the game. Howard is a minus 2 goalie this season. Both Stoke, Arsenal, and Leichester ended with Howard conceding 2 goals. Robles had 3 sucsseive clean sheets before he was dropped for Howard. If RM wants to win go with Robles!!

Play Bainsey instead of Barry

Isn't Stones suspended in Europe anyway?
Mark, Liverpool, 6:05 PM 14/03/2015
Barry is suspended Kipper.

Really got to be focused for this one...Stones has not got to fart around on the ball and I think Kone up front with Lukaku would cause them more problems...give Barkley a chance but Mirralas has gone already and should be played in the reserves....COYB..

Is Barry suspended?
Dave, uk, 4:58 PM 14/03/2015
Garbutt provides a real threat and delivers the ball quickly. He must start. Leighton on the bench until he is super fit. And yes, give Ossie a start too. Hopeful for a decent result .......... Please.
