Lucas Digne looks set to play despite coming off with an ankle knock during the cup defeat to QPR last Tuesday
Having suffered the ignominy of a Carabao Cup defeat to Championship side QPR, Everton turn their full attention to their Premier League campaign which resumes on Saturday against Norwich City.
Thankfully, the Blues' potential selection crisis at full-back looks to have been avoided for now after Rafael Benitez indicated that Lucas Digne has been training over the past few days.
The Frenchman was withdrawn from the Carabao Cup tie at Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday with an ankle complaint and was immediately a doubt for this Premier League fixture against Norwich but he looks set to be available for selection.
Seamus Coleman remains sidelined with a hamstring problem but Digne could be joined in the team to face the Canaries by Jordan Pickford who has also been able to train this week after missing the last two games with a shoulder injury.

Coleman, along with Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, may not be ready to return until after the next international break, however.
"[Richarlison is] not available," Benitez confirmed. "He is getting better but the two strikers are not available so we have to make sure the people around are capable to score goals. We have done with different players.
It's a question of time for [Salomon Rondon]. He has to improve his fitness."
When asked if any of the injured trio will be playing for their countries during the upcoming international break, the manager said: “No chance. They will not be available."
Benitez also confirmed that Jean-Philippe Gbamin remains sidelined because of injury and that André Gomes is also out after starting in the cup tie on Tuesday before coming off in the second half.
The continued absence of that first-choice front pairing leaves Benitez short on options, with Rondon the only senior recognised centre-forward available. On that basis alone, the Venezuelan might get another start even though he does look well short of match fitness but the manager could also opt for Demarai Gray up front, supported by Andros Townsend, Alex Iwobi and, perhaps, Anthony Gordon.
The teenager did enough at QPR to suggest he is deserving of more opportunities in the side, although whether that stretches to starting at the moment remains to be seen.
On the other side of defence from Digne, Jonjoe Kenny's weak showing in the cup defeat means he is unlikely to retain his place at right-back, which leaves Ben Godfrey and Mason Holgate as the likely deputies for Coleman.
As far as Norwich are concerned, there is only one statistic that has haunted the Evertonian psyche since the Toffees went down at Aston Villa last weekend and the Canaries extended their sequence of successive losses in the Premier League to 15 when they were beaten at home by Watford.
It's a run of defeats that stretches back to two seasons ago when the East Anglian club were relegated and Godfrey was still in their team. It's also one that is tailor-made for a team coming to Goodison Park, where torrid runs of form and goal droughts are miraculously ended by the accommodating Blues.
Such generosity pre-dates Benitez, of course, so the hope is that he can keep his charges focused and motivated to get back to winning ways and get the three points that they should do based on the form book and the respective strengths of the squads on paper.

Gomes, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Gbamin, Coleman and Delph!
2 Posted 24/09/2021 at 14:34:53
And really that's just 3½ players.
Gbamin (sadly) we have't had for almost his entire tenure. Gomes (again sadly) just rarely lives up to the talent. And Delph's continued absence in not an absence; it's welcome.
3 Posted 24/09/2021 at 14:52:04
And I agree with Danny, Delph is no loss. Should also mention the man who cannot be named – and he's no loss either.
4 Posted 24/09/2021 at 15:02:23
Godfrey is a shadow of the player we saw last season and may still be feeling the effects of Covid so I would put Holgate in there alongside Keane and Mina and Digne.
Anthony Gordon looks more convincing than Iwobi... in fact, my deceased aunt looks better than Iwobi.
Glad to see Gbamin back, never thought I would say that 2 years ago but, since his psychiatric help, he has upped his game.
So I would go 4-4-2 with Gordon and Simms (okay, Rondon if we have to) and a midfield of Doucouré and Allan, Townsend and Gray.
Let's hope the supporters get behind a very depleted team which is the club board's fault and not that of the manager or the team.

11 Posted 24/09/2021 at 16:10:01
Its a tragedy for the guy put I doubt hes seriously going to play top level football again.
12 Posted 24/09/2021 at 16:10:20
13 Posted 24/09/2021 at 16:14:13
As for the rest, what exactly is even the point of JP Gbamin and Fabian Delph?
Can we just try our utmost in January to find these two fellas new clubs because neither are ever gonna contribute jack shit in an Everton shirt, both signed two years ago now and can count on one hand the combined starts they've had.

17 Posted 24/09/2021 at 16:34:25
And you make my exact point about Rondon. He was never that good even when he was good, and that was several years ago. I still doubt he will be much of a contributor.
18 Posted 24/09/2021 at 16:34:29
Who plays right back then, Kenny, Godfrey or Holgate. Or will we see three in the middle and a return of the wing backs.
Id prefer the flat back four with Holgate at right back. hes no natural but he is the best option for the role as things stand. Not convinced by Godfrey in that position and Kenny just hasnt looked good enough.
Holgate Keane Mina Digne
Allan Doucoure Gomesh
Townsend Simms Gray
Its not going to happen, but Rondon is still not match fit after four months with no football. Benitez said today that he didnt expect to be using him so soon. Alluding that he would rather play Richarlison through the middle if DCL is out. Simms could be sharper and be a better alternative, and deserves his chance . Its the right time to give him an opportunity.
19 Posted 24/09/2021 at 16:36:37
I feel sorry for him too but unfortunate as it is, we are not running a charity where we can spend £20 million plus on players plus no doubt quite considerable wages for absolutely no return two years on.
We need to move Gbamin on.
We need to move Delph on.
We need to move Tosun on.
Three player that are draining the club financially and offering nothing.
20 Posted 24/09/2021 at 16:36:59
21 Posted 24/09/2021 at 16:42:15
Said in jest because it must be soul destroying to be so unlucky with injuries. I wish all of them a speedy recovery.
22 Posted 24/09/2021 at 16:44:58
23 Posted 24/09/2021 at 16:52:27
Id go three at the back with Townsend and Gordon wide and Allan, Doucouré and Gray in between them. Id love to see Simms up front with Rondon as it would help Rondon while he is struggling for fitness but cant see Rafa going for it.
We are so short of players- Tom was poor in the week and unless Jp or Gomes are fit we are down to untried youngsters.
Nonetheless I am looking forward to my first trip to the Old Lady in 18 months.
If anyone is around for a beer pre game let me know!
24 Posted 24/09/2021 at 16:58:00
25 Posted 24/09/2021 at 17:04:04
26 Posted 24/09/2021 at 17:18:45
So, either play Gray down the middle for his pace, or stick Big Dunc up front as a target man. Rondon can be in charge of the tea trolley at half time.

He also said he had spoken to majority shareholder C, who indicated money was now available to buy players in January. Benitez previously explained that the club were unable to add to the £1.7m of spending in the summer because they had been "killed" by financial fair play rules."
31 Posted 24/09/2021 at 17:27:57
Holgate Keane Mina Digne
Townsend Iwobi Gray
32 Posted 24/09/2021 at 17:33:48
Thanks, Dave - I'll have a pint of bitter, please, mate. Anybody else?
33 Posted 24/09/2021 at 17:38:35
Anyway mark Pukki out of the game and we have a chance!
34 Posted 24/09/2021 at 17:41:49
Get your money on Rondon to break his duck tomorrow, you just know he is going to do it.
35 Posted 24/09/2021 at 17:44:53
I expect RB to go with Begovic, Holgate. Keane, Mina, Digne, Allan, Doucoure, Townsend, Grey, Rondon and Iwobi. I personally would play myself before Iwobi but there you go.
36 Posted 24/09/2021 at 17:59:07
37 Posted 24/09/2021 at 18:11:15
Dont recall Cattericks or Kendalls teams having so many first teamers out at any one time like this.
Players often were ever-presents played every match in the season. Despite harder tackling many times broken legs etc..
Is it the speed of todays game or the effect of the insurances or medics ??
Any TW insiders comments to enlighten us all on this subject would be welcome
38 Posted 24/09/2021 at 18:21:53
Personally Id go Deeney, fighter ,vocal, doesnt suffer fools, ok …similar goals record to Rondón, but takes a great pen!
39 Posted 24/09/2021 at 18:23:36
Enough of the jokes,the serious problem is we don't have fit or better backups for injuries. The irony is only Everton could get 4 of their regular starters injured at the same time.

47 Posted 24/09/2021 at 18:48:53
I thought Begovic was a decent signing as number 2, but so far he has disappointed. I would rather have kept Virginia.
Subs bench should be inspiring tomorow. Tom Davies and a handful of teenagers with pulses.

50 Posted 24/09/2021 at 19:08:23
Danny Willamson was a bargain by comparison. 15 games in 3 years, JPG needs 12 more in the next 8 months to match that astonishing record.
51 Posted 24/09/2021 at 19:08:56
Hi all, we all have our favourite players and those we don't rate, but I find it distasteful to ridicule players when an "He's not good enough" remark will suffice. It's something that those of us who are planning to attend tomorrows get-together can discuss. It's also my opinion that not only has the game changed but also the attitude of some of the fans, but then I may be completely wrong. My standards were set over 70 years ago and I find it difficult to alter them now.
52 Posted 24/09/2021 at 19:37:17
Like you I see a major change in the game as it used to be but I think the fact that the current bunch earn more in a week than most of the old great players earned in a lifetime even allowing for inflation has a lot to do with the disenchantment. That and the advent of social media and even sites like our own ToffeeWeb.
Where in the old days you had a debate over a pint or a half time argument without the players ever hearing a thing we now have fans swapping insults (and compliments) via twitter and the like.

Benitez has said this evening that he has met with Moshiri and he has funds available for January, with the exit of Bernard and James, and identified strengthening areas.
Please address our weak bench problem, by moving at least Delph and Davies on and get two decent midfielders on the books in January.

Although we have a number of injuries this is a watershed for RAfa. Win this and the belief goes on. Lose this and we are on the precipice of ending in tears.

With the appointment of the highly divisive Rafa Benitez plus a threadbare squad for him to sort out it was obvious that we would at some point find ourselves 1 defeat from a possible meltdown.
This Norwich game is a must win game for confidence because the following games will be a nightmare.
How can a professional footballer be so unfit as Rondon is and worse still why recruit a player in this condition as it smacks of being unprofessional. It hardly gives our young lads any heart to see him trudging around on the pitch.
68 Posted 24/09/2021 at 23:59:00
People, including footballers, don't choose to be sick or injured and, of course, no one should face the sack after being off for just a few weeks. However, it would be very difficult to make a defence for someone who's been off for 2 years and a couple of others who are very rarely seen.
These players have cost £ms in transfer fees and many more £ms in wages. I think the time is near when the club must consider cancelling contracts even if it means the players would have no sell on value.
Although I'm sure Gbamin,Tosun and Delph don't want to be permanently injured they're nevertheless sucking the life blood out of this club. Together with the one we don't mention the four of them must be costing in excess of £1m per month.
The club surely cannot continue to sustain this level of absence.

I agree Simms should be used at some point but we don't know just how fit he is, either. He hasn't played a competitive game since being injured practicing penalties for Blackpool!
Mind you, he could hardly be as unfit as Rondon who is on the slow side at the best of times.

Given RBs mention of available money in January.
May I suggest that we bid for Lorenzo Pellegrini - Roma Captain in January or next summer. Central midfielder and the captain - exactly what we need in midfield. Especially as Gomes, Davies, Iwobi, Gbamin and Delph are not up the standard we need to move forward. Try for Jesse Lingard too.
If we can get Koulibaly, I would still go after him even at his age - he would be the organiser and brick wall we've cried out for ages now.. We could still get 4 / 5 years out of him - just look at Silva and what he's done for that CFC defence.
As for a full back I leave that to RB and Brands. After all its about time we bought a decent one to give Coleman a rest. Isn't it ???
78 Posted 25/09/2021 at 03:19:04
80 Posted 25/09/2021 at 04:47:09
I agree about Simms but would start with Rondon and bring the lad on later. He's only recovering from a nasty injury himself
81 Posted 25/09/2021 at 05:43:42
Bill W @ 68, totally agree there should be some sort Cancellation/Termination of Contracts for players if they 'don't do what it says on the tin' I'm sure a few would be 'less sick and more readily available if if their Lottery Umbilical was in danger of severance. See you later mate at BM or before in The Royal Oak. Have Andy Crooks over staying in my place, he's really looking forward to a good day, let's hope that starts with a win.
82 Posted 25/09/2021 at 06:41:44
Wonder if Everton charity day will be in full swing today to aid that rot.
83 Posted 25/09/2021 at 06:49:18
We just need to get back to winning ways today and personally I dont care how we do it. Im going for 2 - 1 to the blues.
Onward Evertonians. Full support. 💙
84 Posted 25/09/2021 at 07:31:33
Norwich were saddled with a diabolical schedule (seriously - Liverpool, Man City and Leicester City out of the gate?), but they had a good opportunity to right the ship last week and got tonked by Watford, so there's no reason we shouldn't be able to get the job done.
85 Posted 25/09/2021 at 07:57:11
Puukki might be out? Sounds ominous, doesn't it?
86 Posted 25/09/2021 at 08:14:52
Norwich will win their first game soon, we have to make sure it isnt today. Hope that Pickford and Digne can play and that Gray and Townsend have got their shooting boots on.
Holgate Godfrey Mina Digne
Townsend Iwobi Gray
89 Posted 25/09/2021 at 08:42:32
I'm with the older fans... support the players in a blue shirt and stop moaning of things you have no control over.
Why can't we mention the Iceman's name? Anyway, Rafa has been dealt a shit hand with injuries. He took the job knowing that he was inheriting a crap squad.
He is here for the long term... mid-table security and his job is safe!
90 Posted 25/09/2021 at 08:43:24
91 Posted 25/09/2021 at 08:43:40
Character and will today and to take the chances.
Rafa will be setting up with his best available Team, theres no reason why Everton, cant win, but Norwich will be fighting for their lives.
Onwards and upwards and to bounce back after Villa and QPR.

Even with the injuries I'm still confident we'll win this comfortably. Norwich are a very poor side.

Slid into my tassled Slippers
My mind on the later Magic Carpet Ride
Downstairs for Mother Gaias Morning Feast
Ambrosian Berries and Fruits
Bliss it is to be alive
But today it is very heaven
Feasted I walk up stairs
The window framing A Majestic Vistula
The City before me
Mr.Turner nor Gainsborough could present anything fairer
Morning Grey, with slips of pale white, colourless yet wonderful
The Buildings over The Mersey
My excited heart and breath the only sound
I stand still yet excited for the coming day
Sitting now at my desk
Words flowing without edit
My spirit speaking
To each of you
My thoughts flowing and floating in the morning air
Not restricted by sense or correction
Later to drive my chariot
Like Moses or Ben Hur
Under The River
Dark for a moment
Illumination and brightness
Framed in Blue and White
Our Matriarchal Mothers
In body or spirit
Waving us on
Annie and Maggie Brady
On Smith Street
Colette and Joan and Margret
Defenders of the faith
Makers of us men
My heart waves to Mary Walsh
Never seen for half a century
Still beautiful I know
Daisy Street calls me
For a moment I hear “Faith of our Fathers”
Filtering through the air
Turning to Whittle Street
The 33 Cosmic Coughers Bus to Cardinal Godfrey
Up The Valley
Fleetingly I see Father Winder
Colette with net curtains around her shoulders
Leading the procession
Mud pies on the back “olla”
Clare Boggan shouts me from Lambeth Road
“Playing out Georgie”
O wondrous power of words
Licensed to take the meaning that we love.
Taking in every sound and image
Our own Westminster Palace
Does Amiens or Rheims or Chartres
Compare to you in memories
The Dark House
Faces look to me
But clear in the eyes that shine
The slight nod
The slow smile
Of life and death
Of colours and lights
Talk and a sharing
Of dreams and Golden Visions
Sammy whose mouth emits strong language
Yet his heart is filled and declares openly
His faith and humanity
A True Blue Son
Sammy a True Believer in his Holy Trinity
From a Liverpool Mother
Huddled in groups
Whispers and shouts
Only seen by the Blessed
Tie us all together
Fathers and mothers and grandparents and grandchildren
My daughters join me
I look up and for a moment
I see my mother in one
And my father in the other
Behind them like shadows
I recall my first visits to Goodison
Coming home from work
Washing in the tin bath in the yard
Suit, clean shirt and tie and sweets
Holding my hand and walking me
We are made from such
A walk down Lambeth Road
To meet with those
Names waiting to have faces matched to them
Alongside The Dock Wall
Where our fathers went to sea
Leaving the running of Our Lives
In Safe hands and hearts
To The Women
New friendships formed
Close to The River that has carried our stories out on tides
And brought new stories back for us to enjoy
Niagara Falls Lamps and Parrots
The Air will be
I send “posso waves” and cosmic grooves out from my room into The Astral for all to share and will see you this evening in spirit or body - - with a firm handshake - - your friend - - George

I know we are famous for letting teams who havent won for a while beat us or players who havent scored for ages score against us, but this is Norwich possibly without Cantwell and Pukki, I mean if we cant beat these comfortably then we are in bigger trouble than I imagined.
For some reason some on T/W some like to give our best player Richarlison stick, well I saw a couple of fans put a picture of him sitting on the train going to watch us at QPR didn't see any of the other injured players doing that.

Last season we had Carlo who was used to managing galacticos this season we have Rafa who plans meticulously and believes in our motto NSNO particularly when managing with limited resources.
One other comment on clamour for including Gordon. I have yet to see that he has the potential to be a PL player. Still way behind Grey and Townsend.
104 Posted 25/09/2021 at 11:08:03
For all the toffees going to the holy ground today, let us all please drink it in. I for one will never take going to the match for granted again.
Playin out blues ? 💙
105 Posted 25/09/2021 at 11:12:43
A scrappy 1-0 will do the job but will not leave us feeling too bright. Let's hope for a good dominant display and at least a two goal cushion. I hear Pukki's out which lifts my heart!
I'm not feeling too optimistic tbh, but mitigation before it's needed, we are a skeleton of a squad at the moment. However, that notwithstanding, I'm staying with my "go to" 2-0 again for this one.
106 Posted 25/09/2021 at 11:14:15
Hope you guys attending can help to inspire the team to a victory, Im plumping fir a 2-1 win with our goals coming from set pieces.
Really hope Pickford can start as Begovic is woeful - he has no redeeming qualities as a keeper and looked disinterested at QPR, he certainly has no physicality and was quiet as a mouse.
Any kind of scrappy win will do!
107 Posted 25/09/2021 at 11:14:50

Of all the teams Farke could face, we are the fixture most likely to deliver Norwich their first points on a plate. Who can forget the 0-2 'performance' vs Norwich in 2019 that lifted them off the bottom of the table.
Iwobi played that day and injuries mean he is likely to feature today. I'd much prefer Gordon who at least has an eye for a goal and is willing to take a penalty, unlike our fearless footballing Jedi warrior.
Can optimism triumph over experience? I hope so, but much depends on having Allan, Doucoure, Gray and Townsend putting another shift in and our back four paying some attention for 90 minutes (a big ask, I know).
Please Everton, rack up some more points so we can at least face next week's probable Manure massacre with some fortitude.

I thought the same about Gordon but he was one of the few bright spots on Tuesday night. He may still prove us all wrong and I'd like to see him have, at least, some minutes v Norwich

I would also play Mina alongside Holgate. We cant keep defending deep and expecting to hit these teams on the break. We need to take the game to Norwich, reduce the space on the pitch and look for Allan and Doucoure to turn over possession high up the pitch. We wont do that with Keane playing.
I would also start with Gordon. He seemed to have a good understanding with Digne down the left. My only concern is that Gordon and Gray dont offer a lot defensively, so Townsend would have to tuck in a bit and potentially lose some attacking impetus on the right.
After Rondon has run himself into the ground, we need to trust some younger players rather than playing without a striker. Surely Norwich is a good team to introduce Simms for the last 30 minutes, regardless of whether we are winning or losing.
The rest of the side picks itself.

However the two of Alan and Doucoure will leave gaps exposing the defence. Perhaps we should keep Davies in there and play three in midfield. Doucoure can still push on the assist the attacks.
On a similar tack, Rondon has to have more minutes to get up to speed. He isn't going to get match fit sitting on the bench, but Simms should surely get a run out. If we can't blood kids against Norwich then when can they play.
For once it would be nice to see us on the front foot from the start without giving away the first goal.
A 3-0 win today.
(Cantwell missing for personal reasons).
