Everton have made three changes to their side which will take on Leicester at Goodison Park in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.
Ronald Koeman has made the decision to bring 20-year-old Mason Holgate into his line-up alongside the more experienced Gareth Barry and Enner Valencia.
This has seen Idrissa Gueye, Aaron Lennon and Dominic Calvert-Lewin drop out of the the starting eleven after their 3-0 victory over Southampton.

By contrast, Leicester have struggled to recapture the same form that saw them win the league in the last campaign and a 0-0 draw against Middlesbrough in their last clash has seen them drop to 15th.
The two sides have recently met in the league for the scheduled Boxing Day encounter at the Foxes’ King Power Stadium.
Everton ran out comfortable victors with two goals in the second half from Kevin Mirallas and Romelu Lukaku helping them to a 2-0 win.
In the previous campaign both sides saw very different results in the FA Cup with Everton making the semi-final of the competition, while Leicester were knocked out in the third round against Tottenham.
