Deulofeu &Amp; Alcaraz Start

Gerard Deulofeu and Antolin Alcaraz start Everton’s game at Southampton.

The pair are in because Sylvain Distin and Kevin Mirallas are missing with hamstring and groin injuries respectively.

Deulofeu is preferred to McGeady to deputise for Mirallas, with another option, Leon Osman, also among the replacements.

Alcaraz will partner John Stones in central defence with Phil Jagielka not expected back until next week.

On the bench there is a place for 16-year-old midfielder Ryan Ledson who has been a regular for the Under-21s this season. He’s joined by fellow youngsters Luke Garbutt and Tyias Browning.

Tony Hibbert and Joel Robles complete the matchday squad.

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Stones, Alcaraz, Barry, McCarthy, Naismith, Barkley, Lukaku, Deulofeu. Subs: Robles, Hibbert, McGeady, Osman, Garbutt, Browning, Ledson.
