Senior attacking duo axed in five changes: This Everton XI will destroy West Ham
Goalkeeper and defenders
Jordan Pickford (Goalkeeper) – Despite Everton’s terrible defensive record, the goalkeeper can still hold his head up high, unlike a lot of his teammates. He is one of the only guaranteed starters based on performances.
Cuco Martina (Left-back) – With Leighton Baines injured, even the best option available for the game against West Ham is probably a risky one. The 28-year-old was not in squad for the Southampton game, so hopefully that motivates him to play above and beyond to stay in the team, despite being out of position.
Ashley Williams (Centre-back) –The defender’s performances have been dismal this season and if Everton had more depth in this position the 33-year-old would not make the bench, let alone start. However, as it stands, Unsworth is just going to have to hope that the Williams from last season turns up on Wednesday, as he is the best available.
Phil Jagielka (Centre-back) – The captain is capable of putting in a passionate performance for the club he has been at for the last 10 years, and his display will be vital.
Jonjoe Kenny (Right-back) – The young defender had to deal with playing out of position for majority of the Southampton game, and he deserves the opportunity to better that second-half performance by starting on the right against the Hammers.
