Yannick Bolasie, Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Williams have all been named in Ronald Koeman’s team to face Stoke on Saturday.
It is a first Premier League start of the season for all three, with Bolasie and Williams only arriving in the past weeks, while a heel injury kept Lukaku out of the starting X1 in the opening two Premier League matches.
All three played a full 90 minutes in midweek, as the Toffees beat Yeovil 4-0 in the EFL Cup second round.
Last weekend all three of the star players came off the bench to help Everton come from behind to beat West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Lukaku was introduced in the first half with the score at 1-0 as Koeman opted to pull James McCarthy from proceedings, while the other two were brought on in the second half.
From the side that started against West Brom, Funes Mori, Gerard Deulofeu and McCarthy drop to the bench in place of the three big names.
Koeman’s side are unbeaten so far this season, and will hope the arrival of their two summer signings and talismanic striker can help them to victory at Goodison Park.
In their opening game of the season they drew 0-0 with Tottenham at home, and struggled to create chances with Deulofeu leading the line in the absence of Lukaku.
