Dominic Calvert-Lewin is fit according to Carlo Ancelotti along with Yerry Mina, André Gomes, Bernard and Fabian Delph
Against the backdrop of still-simmering resentment at and recriminations over the failed Super League and the actions of the Shameless Six, Everton return to action on the pitch on Friday evening against one of the pariah clubs in the form of Arsenal.
Forced to make an embarrassing climb-down and apologise to their fans on Tuesday night for their part in arguably the most hubristic and ill-conceived idea in the history of the game, the Gunners play for the first time since the furore erupted, with the irony of their Premier League position not lost on the watching football world.
They come into this fixture sitting in ninth place, nine points off Champions League qualification that their owner regards as their divine right and three points behind the Toffees in eighth having played a game more.
Their superior goal difference means that they can leapfrog Everton with victory over Carlo Ancelotti's side but a first win for the Toffees on Arsenal turf since in 25 years would put some distance between the two clubs and reduce Mikel Arteta's prospects of finishing his first season in charge in a European place. It would also draw Everton to within a point of neighbours Liverpool (at least until the reds played Newcastle at Saturday lunchtime) and reignite their own hopes of finishing in a European place.
There has been good news on the injury front that means the Blues could not only name a full subs bench but also not have to stuff it with players from the Under-18s. Having been deprived of him again in the last game against Tottenham a week ago, Ancelotti says he will be able to field Dominic Calvert-Lewin for the first time since the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace earlier this the month.
The striker has been troubled by an adductor complaint but his manager announced in his press conference that he would be ready for the trip to North London.
Him slotting back in alongside Richarlison, would mean he could share the onus for goalscoring with the Brazilian and restore some of that aerial threat up front that has been missing in his absence.
André Gomes was another one who was close to being available last time out but he wasn't risked because a hamstring problem and Ancelotti has indicated that both he and Yerry Mina are fit after the Colombian shook off an abductor issue of his own. Bernard is also fit again, as is Fabian Delph.
Even if there are no other injury surprises or training-ground mishaps between now and kick-off, Ancelotti could still make further changes to the side that started against Spurs. He may feel that the performance last week was good enough that there is merit in keeping the five-man back line with wingbacks and, in that case, Seamus Coleman would be a solid bet to retake a place in the starting XI in the wake of his excellent cameo off the bench last time out.
That would, obviously, come at the expense of Alex Iwobi and it wouldn't be a surprise if Michael Keane or Mason Holgate felt repercussions of their errors against Spurs. now that Mina is available.
Arsenal, meanwhile, will be without their two most reliable strikers, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang not due to resume light training until the end of the week and Alexandre Lacazette struggling with a hamstring injury.
Full-back Kieran Turney is still a couple of weeks away from returning to training at the earliest and Martin Odegaard will be assessed for an ankle problem but is rated 50/50.
Having relinquished control of their own destiny with this run of five Premier League games without a victory, all Everton can do now is try and win each game as they come and hope that results fall their way elsewhere.
Arsenal may be looking strong in Europe as they marched into the last four of the Europa League the Tuesday before last and they were comfortable winners at now-relegated Sheffield United two weeks ago but they were no match for Liverpool at home at the beginning of the month and they needed a last-gasp equaliser to deny struggling Fulham in their last outing at the Emirates.
Certainly, the Everton that probably have beaten Spurs had it not been for two defensive mistakes would fancy themselves to pick up three points from North London but it will take another determined display and clinical finishing up front to get the job done. They're more than capable of doing so.
Kick-off: 8pm, Friday 23 April 2021 on Sky Sports
Referee: Jon Moss
VAR: David Coote
Last Time: Arsenal 3 - 2 Everton
Predicted Line-up: Pickford, Coleman, Mina, Godfrey, Digne, Davies, Allan, Sigurdsson, Rodriguez, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin

I am surprised they want to actually let us contaminate their precious turf.
We may as well make the most of the invite and take 3 points off them. If we played like we did against Tottenham I don't think Arsenal will be as lucky.
Arsenal 1 Everton 2
2 Posted 22/04/2021 at 13:59:12
They are probably short of firepower and we have a few players fit again. So we should have a good chance of 3 points. However, this is Everton... and if we don't win we hope we don't fizzle out. Come on blues!!

Arsenal should be embarrassed to step out onto their pitch on Friday evening and I have this gut feeling we are going to put one over them - for a change!
6 Posted 22/04/2021 at 14:51:47
The blues could remedy what has been a disappointing season with a decent run to the line starting with a win at one of the dirty dozen.

I think 2-0 to us today.
10 Posted 22/04/2021 at 15:04:37
This is one game that every single Evertonian stands as one, forget who is our starting 11, forget we have different points of views, let us all unite and being well, stuff them.

But whatever, we should go all out to hammer this lot and see if we get an invite into some closed shop European competition.
15 Posted 22/04/2021 at 16:25:53
By the time they realised that all the evidence suggested he was a completely incompetent fucking idiot as well as an arrogant, deluded fantasist who had been absolutely awash with cash and had somehow misspent hundreds of millions of Euros and run his business to the point of bankruptcy, and that this was all a ruse to a) bail out his own near bankrupt business and b) had somehow negotiated access to funds whereby he was going to be given billions more to misspend it was too late.
When he went on TV and confirmed to everyone else what was only previously suspected - and how desperate to dig out his almost collapsed business - the penny must have dropped.
Looks like a reset is coming for the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona because the whole thing hinged on piggybacking off EPL clubs. Think we are about to hear the world's tiniest violin being played again
16 Posted 22/04/2021 at 16:37:41
Delph fit? Probably picked up an injury in training today. Pulled a back muscle tying up his boot laces.
17 Posted 22/04/2021 at 16:45:14
I want to beat Arsenal because theyre Arsenal, and I always want to crush Arsenal.
18 Posted 22/04/2021 at 16:53:39
I'd love to beat his ass tomorrow, but respects all the same. He has always been a class act.
19 Posted 22/04/2021 at 17:11:28
Definitely into the vindictive angle on the response but exacting that toll on Arsenal will hurt a little bit. Oh yeah, the football match, it is time for another response and enough regulars are back- 1-2 with Richarlison getting back on the score sheet.
20 Posted 22/04/2021 at 17:22:56
Like some have suggested if we don't/cant beat these, who are having their own worries at present, and allegedly both Aubameyang and Lacazette out, we will have crowned a pretty disappointing season in terms of points frittered away, and say goodbye to any thin vestige of Euro qualification.
Looking forward to it all the same as I do with all our games, just want us to go out and finish the season in style!
21 Posted 22/04/2021 at 17:23:13
Carlo says we need to win 5 games to qualify for Europe, so tomorrow is a must-win to keep those hopes alive.
22 Posted 22/04/2021 at 17:35:48
I don't mind too much about fawning over Arteta, still one of the best we have had. However, I find it irritating that there have been some articles and radioTV comments fawning over the fact that those Septic Six clubs have deigned to join the "regular" teams who they had cosidered as "inferior" the day before.
I had previously commented that teams such as Wigan Athletic, Bolton Wanderers and Sheffield Wednesday had been punished for financial indiscretions that did not directly affect other clubs. They have all been demoted.
Meanwhile, the Septic Six have caused a significant disruption to the entire Football World that has still left a feeling of intense anger that is likely to persist.nI sincerely feel that they should face significant penalties, and the "Let sleeping dogs lie" attitude is unacceptable.
23 Posted 22/04/2021 at 17:40:07
Plus they are already talking of Usmanov buying out Kroenke.

He was such an annoying little shit, as was his dad, that my son got up, walked past him and nudged him into the pool – shallow end. That shut both of them up.
26 Posted 22/04/2021 at 18:08:20
Totally agree. It's like we should be humbled that they have decided to return. They have the strength of their own popularity as a unit of 6 but, if any of the shit 6 decided to go it alone and enter the ESL with Real Madrid, they would get absolutely battered by the EPL.
Personally, I still can't get my head around how Spurs are included.. do you have to have over a billion in debt to be noticed, they have won jack shit for over 30 years and last won the title about 60 years ago.
27 Posted 22/04/2021 at 18:20:23
It's already apparent that the media - will be fawning all over these 6 clubs now as the 'true voice ' of the match going football supporter.
Not only will these 6 rats not be punished for their clear and obvious breaches, but their reputations will be given another coat of gloss by the TV.
As we speak, Sky are still recovering from the massive trauma of seeing their cash cow about to disintegrate and their wringing of hands and squealing on behalf the real fans and the rest of the pyramid -has been sickening to hear and watch.
Almost as sickening as the crocodile tears from some of the owners of the 6 who have apologised to their own fans - but not a word of apology or remorse towards the 14 nor indeed every other club in the pyramid.
Tomorrow is a great opportunity for Everton Football Club to turn their defiance from words into actions while everyone watches. COYB - play with anger!

30 Posted 22/04/2021 at 19:01:03
However I humbly bow to a post that I had read using the term "septic". It was NOT my descriptor but far better than "despicable". "Despicable" can usually be attributed to a one act or occurence. "Septic" causes long lasting putrication, spoiling and permanent damage to what had once been a stable substance.ie The Football League. Something that is septic may be beyond repair, or may take many years to purify using "BLUE SUDS CLEANER" N.B this is not a Commercial but an appeal to common sense.
31 Posted 22/04/2021 at 19:04:50
The Toxic 6 violated a lot of things with this idiocy, but their players' contracts are not among them.

35 Posted 22/04/2021 at 19:56:55
I'm feeling our boys will see this as a big game so will up their game.
Going forwards the Arsenal have some talented young players. Defensively they are atrocious, so let's hope the lads go for it and get us on the European trail.
36 Posted 22/04/2021 at 20:02:18
But knowing our lot it will take them about 20 minutes to do so.
37 Posted 22/04/2021 at 20:28:14
Watching Leicester rampage through, around and over WBA, I'm thinking it must have been a bit weird for them to see four clubs below them -- three of whom haven't won a title since before Leicester did -- invited into the Super League over them. I wouldn't be surprised if they're using the insult to motivate them today.
38 Posted 22/04/2021 at 21:02:02
I used to love it when our players went out saying “fuck ‘em”.
39 Posted 22/04/2021 at 21:05:59
40 Posted 22/04/2021 at 21:14:38
Ditto Joe, and let's hope Uefa hit the dirty six very severely and put these schesister boards and directors in the dock.
Annual fines and banning orders and all voting and participation rights in their respective leagues, and Uefa, are removed.
But to win tomorrow is what is needed.
41 Posted 22/04/2021 at 21:15:02
Good to be reminded that Fabian Delph exists. Hopefully we dish out a thorough beating to one of the 6 clubs with ideas above their station.
42 Posted 22/04/2021 at 21:15:56
43 Posted 22/04/2021 at 21:28:55
44 Posted 22/04/2021 at 21:36:03
45 Posted 22/04/2021 at 21:57:16
Their defence isn't that good so Everton should just have a go at them but they do have some dangerous attackers, Willian, Pepe, Lacazzette along with Smith-Rowe and Saka who look like real finds.
Gotten that way that we never know what to expect from this Everton squad but with one or two recovered from injury they should at least grab a point which is all we seem to get these days but the top six is further away then ever.
46 Posted 22/04/2021 at 21:59:25
Tom won't start.
47 Posted 22/04/2021 at 22:07:56
48 Posted 22/04/2021 at 22:22:15
49 Posted 22/04/2021 at 22:40:15
I believe Lacazette is out injured with a hammy.
Let's go for the throat from the off.
50 Posted 22/04/2021 at 23:07:08
Just looked up the details to see Adrian Heath scored the goal.
51 Posted 22/04/2021 at 00:05:52
Not sure whether Partey has made a significant difference. If not, their midfield doesn't appear to be anything we can't deal with, even with our weaknesses.
Again we have an opportunity to put down a good marker. It would be so good to do it against one of the ‘I'm alright Jack' clubs.
UTFT, COYB, NSNO!

53 Posted 22/04/2021 at 00:14:32
The ball hung in the air seemingly forever in front of us at the Clock End of Highbury before hitting the net. The travelling Evertonians fell silent as it hung there, and then pandemonium as it hit the net!
Liverpool started the day top of the table, but lost 3-1 to Crazy Gang Wimbledon at Anfield. We left Highbury sure we could win the League and we duly did winning 10 games in a row. Happy days!

57 Posted 23/04/2021 at 03:58:00
I wouldn't play Sigurdsson, although I expect Carlo to give him the nod. I'd like to see us play a solid midfield 3, with Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin and King in front of them. I thought King looked bright against Spurs.
58 Posted 23/04/2021 at 05:23:34
Ah well... joys of being a blue. To me, it's still a privilege and a buzz to come from a long line of Blues. As for Arsenal, well, my idol will always be Michael Thomas for obvious reasons in 89. Finger-wagging MacMahon "C'mon, one minute left... oh no!"
59 Posted 23/04/2021 at 06:07:40
You're right though. Failure to build on success.
To tonight and the here and now. Great opportunity to see off Arsenal and push on towards those European places.
60 Posted 23/04/2021 at 07:44:10
Even though Aubamayang and Lacazette are out we still need to be weary of Saka. The other kid Emile Smith-Rowe is also extremely talented.
61 Posted 23/04/2021 at 07:49:16
Coleman Mina Godfrey Digne
Davies James Allan
King DCL Richie
The major issue is 'zero depth or cover' in that front 3, and the lack of energetic right back who can bomb forward for 90 mins (like TAA does for the evil ones) allowing that front 3 to all get in the box at times. For me this is the biggest investment priority for the summer. A 'Rabiot' would be a huge bonus. :)
62 Posted 23/04/2021 at 07:53:28
Providing he can strengthen the bench too.

66 Posted 23/04/2021 at 08:27:43
I think it might be a harder match tonight because Arteta, seems to get more effort and commitment out of his younger players, rather than his superstars, but I expect Everton to win tonight Martin, and with the bookies now open, Im actually considering if Im brave enough to try and win a family holiday, which would be fantastic!
67 Posted 23/04/2021 at 08:43:43
68 Posted 23/04/2021 at 08:54:14
Olsen or Pickford?
69 Posted 23/04/2021 at 09:22:37
Keane and Holgate deserve to be dropped, Keane has been great fir much of the season but has made a lot of mistakes these last few weeks.
Delph fit? Must be that time of year when he is grasping for a new contract, would rather see a teenage goalie on the bench than him.
About time we broke our Arsenal hoodoo, these greedy fucks are shite.

Lawrenson is a bell end, according to him the shite should win the league every year and we should be relegated. Just another part of the shite infested bbc
74 Posted 23/04/2021 at 10:01:47
I suppose you are right although I find the mini-meltdowns when who is starting is announced exasperating enough. To have a moan about a spot of crystal ball gazing just seems a teensie-weensie bit self-indulgent.
Vive le difference!

After the Spurs game, I think Carlo is going to find it hard to drop Davies and Sigurdsson both of whom I thought played really well.
Coleman, Godfrey, Mina, Digne
Allan, Davies, Sigurdsson
We need a couple from Richarlison tonight.
Up the Blues!!!

This morning the BBC sports website listed 5 clubs competing for the signature of Max Aarons. Would anyone like to venture a suggestion as to which club wasn't included ?
83 Posted 23/04/2021 at 11:23:56
I also liked the way he linked up with James, including playing him through for one of the chances we didnt capitalise on. If they can build on that it would be great for the teams creativity.

The squad just isn't good enough and we are going out on the pitch on a wing and a prayer we get lucky.
Richie and DCL have been lacklustre for a while and James has sputtered somewhat even allowing for his injuries.
Siggy notched a couple in the last game but overall the midfield is still a big problem going forward.
It just seems Everton are going through the motions until the season ends and Carlo just doesn't seem able to raise the intensity level no matter what he says on camera.
91 Posted 23/04/2021 at 14:45:56
I'm just saying that one of the purposes of TW is to accommodate that sort of speculation. And just about anything else that anybody wants to say, no matter how silly we may find it. It's why we're all here, more or less.
92 Posted 23/04/2021 at 14:56:58
You can never be sure of the team Ancelotti will put out but, with only Doucouré missing from the start of the season, I expect a win. Because Everton are good enough to win it.
93 Posted 23/04/2021 at 15:04:18
Repeatedly through the game, Tottenham's right side of defense was wide open.
94 Posted 23/04/2021 at 15:07:48
A lot has changed since last Friday in that the ESL came and died but the Big 6 still lives on and the ESL will come back.
Sadly, we are only there to make up the numbers.
95 Posted 23/04/2021 at 15:22:47
96 Posted 23/04/2021 at 15:35:12
In addition toTony Cottee and Neil McDonald, we got Pat Nevin and Stuat McCall before going into the 1988-89 season. Looked good when he slotted a hat-trick on opening day mind!
97 Posted 23/04/2021 at 15:54:11
I thought Kim Vivian's line-up looked good, then I was reminded of the good interplay between Sigurdsson and James the other night.
All we all want is a good game of football and 3 points for the Blues.

"And I will stroll the merry way
And jump the hedges first
And I will drink the clear
Clean water for to quench my thirst
And I shall watch the ferry-boats
And they'll get high
On a bluer ocean
Against tomorrow's sky
And I will never grow so old again
And I will walk and talk
In gardens all wet with rain
Oh sweet thing, sweet thing
My, my, my, my, my sweet thing
And I shall drive my chariot
Down your streets and cry
'Hey, it's me, I'm dynamite
And I don't know why"

We can bring him on when we need to up the pointing and arm-waving.

Been a great week to be a blue and now the magnificent George.
Don't tell me we won't be rounding this week off with a win.

I think it may have been your cosmic grooves seeping into the ether that prompted the upswell of anger and revolt that caused the owners of the ‘Super 6' to announce a change of mind (though probably only temporary).
Claiming intercedence by you is certainly preferable to the alternative... “It was Hendo's tweet wot done it.” Or Gary Neville's Churchillian speech.

4-3-3. 15-0 please.

On the left-hand side, we have a great full-back but we have no specialist left-sided wide midfielder who can get back consistently to cover, other than Richarlison, but he's our front man too. What happens is that the opposition can attack down the wings and good players can cause havoc in our central defence.
We have a lot of central midfielders but no good wide players. The whole side is unbalanced and we find it difficult to score and vulnerable to defend and this is what we see every game almost. We aren't far off being a top side but there are certain positions where we don't have a player.

Arsenal fans drive Kroenke out and Usmanov takes over

123 Posted 23/04/2021 at 17:52:44
Didn't Usmanov just make another commitment to Everton?

The one change from your team: I'd play Gomes instead of Sigurdsson because, with a front three, he wouldn't play in a No 10 role, which for me is his only position.
Hope we put in a performance tonight – especially against the Greedy Gunners.
137 Posted 23/04/2021 at 18:40:39
Now to beat Arsenal.

Please give us the satisfaction of ending another one of our awful winless records tonight. I want us to end the season like we started it.
No Delph and no Iwobi please Carlo.
COYB Give us all a decent weekend. 0-3.
