Everton confirmed line up v Leicester: 22-year-old starts in two changes
By Matt Bullin
Ronald Koeman has named two changes to the side that takes on Leicester City at Goodison Park this afternoon.
The Toffees drew their last match 1-1 with Manchester United at Old Trafford as Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a late equaliser to cut out Phil Jagielka’s opener.
Matthew Pennington, 22, comes into the side to replace Ashley Williams following the Welshman’s red card last time out.
Fit again Morgan Schneiderlin replaces Gareth Barry in the centre of the park.
The club announced the starting XI via their official Twitter account at 3pm ahead of the 4pm kick off.

Everton’s attacking line is unchanged as Romelu Lukaku, Kevin Mirallas and Ross Barkley all start.
The Toffees last Premier League win came over Hull City in March, when Koeman’s side thrashed the Tigers 4-0.
Since then Everton lost 3-1 to Liverpool in the Merseyside derby and drew with Man United last Tuesday night.
A win for Everton will see them close the gap on Arsenal, who currently are currently sixth.
A win for Leicester will see the Foxes leapfrog Watford into the top half of the Premier League for the first time in 2017.
