Everton should make five changes to their starting XI when they take on Leicester in the FA Cup third round tie at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Romelu Lukaku, Tom Davies, Joel Robles, Seamus Coleman, Leighton Baines and Ross Barkley should all retain their places in the starting XI.
Enner Valencia should be brought into the side after scoring in the 3-0 victory over Southampton and Kevin Mirallas should replace the injured Dominic Calvert-Lewis.
The Belgian should play in a wide attacking role with Gerard Deulofeu missing out amid continued speculation about his Everton future.
Barkley should be given freedom to roam behind Lukaku as Koeman will need to name a relatively strong team if his side want to push for a decent run in this year’s cup competition.
Coleman and Baines should retain their places in the full-back roles while Joel Robles should also stay in goal with Maarten Stekelenburg still out with injury.
They should be joined in the side by youngster Davies, who should retain his place, following an impressive performance in his start against Southampton last time out.
Davies should line-up alongside Gareth Barry, while Idrissa Gueye is handed a rest. Tom Cleverley should miss out as he is another player whose immediate future at Everton is unclear.
Phil Jagielka and Mason Holgate should replace Ramiro Funes-Mori and Ashley Williams at centre-back.
