Everton should make four changes for their Premier League fixture against Swansea at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.
After the 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea during their last league fixture, Ronald Koeman must freshen up his side and revert to his usual 4-2-3-1 formation.
Gareth Barry, Brian Oviedo, Tom Cleverley and Funes Mori should be axed for youngster Tom Davies and returning trio Leighton Baines, Idrissa Gueye and Gerard Deulofeu.
Academy product Davies replaced Barry in the second-half at Stamford Bridge and did more in 24 minutes than the entire Toffees midfield had managed throughout the match.
The 18-year-old is a technically gifted footballer who would add some central midfield spark alongside the robust Gueye, who returns from suspension and must replace the out-of-sorts Cleverley.
Another addition which will help Koeman both in attack and defence is left-back Baines, who should replace Oviedo, following his return from injury.
Winger Deulofeu, who can ignite a game into life at any moment, should start as Koeman must drop Funes Mori and revert to playing two centre-backs in Phil Jagielka and Ashley Williams.
Additionally, Ross Barkley must start in behind in-form striker Romelu Lukaku as the duo can severely hurt a weak Swansea defence.
Depending on the weekend results, a win for the Toffees could take them above Manchester United, who are in sixth place on 18 points.
A defeat for their opponents would further dent their chances of survival as they are already in the relegation zone, six points adrift of safety.
