Traore Handed Blues Debut

@Everton

Lacina Traore has been handed his Everton debut in this afternoon’s FA Cup fifth round tie against Swansea City.

The giant striker is one of three changes made by Roberto Martinez to the team that lined up at White Hart Lane seven days ago.

Joel Robles and Ross Barkley also come into the side, replacing Tim Howard and Leon Osman respectively, who both drop down to the bench.

On-loan winger Gerard Deulofeu made a return from injury with a late cameo against Tottenham and he again is named amongst the substitutes.

Everton: Robles, Coleman, Baines, Jagielka, Distin, McCarthy, Barry, Mirallas, Pienaar, Barkley, Traore (Subs: Howard, Stones, Hibbert, McGeady, Deulofeu, Naismith, Osman)

Swansea: Tremmel, Richards, Bartley, Amat, Taylor (c), Canas, de Guzman, Hernandez, Routledge, Lamah, Vazquez (Subs: Vorm, Williams, Tiendalli, Britton, Dyer, Bony, Lita)
