Everton are awaiting news on Mason Holgate after the defender was injured at Tottenham on Monday night
Alex Iwobi has been ruled out with a hamstring problem, while Theo Walcott and Fabian Delph are again expected to be unavailable.
Southampton winger Moussa Djenepo is out with a calf injury and joins Jannik Vestergaard, Sofiane Boufal and Yan Valery on the sidelines.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is included in the squad after a two-game absence.
Southampton have been excellent of late, and Sunday’s win over Manchester City at St Mary’s Stadium made up for their poor home results up to that point.
I think they can maintain their run of form when they go to Goodison Park. Everton don’t give much away but Saints always work hard and I think they will get something from this one.
It’s Everton who I see pushing on more next season, though. Purely and simply because I think they will be doing more in the transfer market to improve their squad.
