This Season V Last Season Comparison: Liverpool Not Quite Bottom But Arsenal Surprisingly Low
Manchester United Have Already Won One Title Under Louis Van Gaal, With Arsenal Second
This has given Roberto Martinez a chance to blood youngsters and put in some players who are on the way back from injuries. He has already named nine of the players who will be on the pitch, and said “two diamonds” will make up the numbers. Here is our predicted line up, with a prediction of who the two will be…
GK) Joel Robles
The keeper should be in for his first appearance of the season for the Toffees.
RB) Tyias Browning
The full-back impressed in appearances against Liverpool and Manchester United, and he will get another chance here.
LB) Luke Garbutt
The youngster has become Leighton Baines’ understudy, and should start with the England international getting a rest.
CB) Antolin Alcaraz
The Paraguayan will have to marshall an inexperienced back line on his return from injury.
CB) Brendan Galloway
The first of the “two diamonds.” Signed in the summer from MK Dons, Galloway would be another making his debut tonight.
