Benitez set for obvious Everton change as Gomes decision looms

Everton are back in Premier League duty this week, looking to build on their recent win.

The Toffees were scheduled to host Leicester City at Goodison Park on Tuesday evening, but the game has been rescheduled for the second time.

Everton’s next match is on Saturday, when they go to Norwich City in the Premier League, and Benitez will be confident his side can build on their FA Cup victory against Hull City.

Asmir Begovic was put in the middle of the pack for the journey to Hull, and he did not have the best of nights.

Benitez gets the somewhat easy job of bringing back proven goalkeeper Jordan Pickford into the squad.

Pickford has only missed one Premier League game this season, a loss to Aston Villa in September, and is set to play against Norwich.

Benitez fielded five defenders against Hull, and it would be interesting to see if he employs similar techniques against Norwich.

If Benitez switches to a back four, one player will be benched in place of a player.

That might be Jonjoe Kenny, with Abdoulaye Doucoure being the most likely player to return to the starting eleven.

As the main striker, Dominic Calvert-Lewin is expected to return in place of Salomon Rondon.
