Moyes Names Strong Xi

by Adam Clark @efc_adamclark

David Moyes has named a strong starting XI for this evening's FA Cup third round tie at Cheltenham Town.

The Blues boss has made just three changes to the team that won 2-1 at Newcastle last week - one of which sees Seamus Coleman return after missing four games through injury.

The other players to come in for the clash at Whaddon Road are Bryan Oviedo and Victor Anichebe, while John Heitinga, Steven Pienaar and Steven Naismith are the three to drop out.

Moyes' changes mean goalkeeper Tim Howard will be protected by a back line comprised of Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka, Sylvain Distin and Coleman, while Anichebe and Oviedo are joined in midfield by Leon  Osman, Marouane Fellaini and skipper Phil Neville.

Croatian striker Nikica Jelavic will again be the lone man in attack.

Connor Roberts, a former Everton Academy goalkeeper, is named on the bench for the hosts.

Everton
: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Jagielka, Distin, Oviedo, Neville, Osman, Fellaini, Anichebe, Jelavic. Subs: Mucha, Duffy, Gueye, Vellios, Barkley, Hitzlsperger, Naismith.

Cheltenham Town: Brown, Jombati, Bennett, Elliott, Jones, Pack, Carter, McGlashan, Penn, Mohamed, Goulding. Subs: Lowe, Hooman, Deering, Duffy, Roberts, Harrad, Taylor.
