The Blues face the Foxes in Thailand this lunchtime and Martinez has handed starts to Sylvain Distin and Gareth Barry.

Tony Hibbert is also in the starting XI, while Irish internationals Shane Duffy, Aiden McGeady and James McCarthy also start.

Youngster Luke Garbutt gets another chance to impress at left-back.

Martinez is likely to make significant changes as the game progresses to ensure his whole squad receive the necessary work outs.

Ross Barkley doesn't feature as he's only been back training for a few days.

Everton: Joel, Hibbert, Distin, Duffy, Garbutt, McCarthy, Barry, McGeady, Naismith, Osman, Pienaar. Subs: Stones, Alcaraz, Gibson, McAleny, Long, Browning, Kennedy, Hope, Lundstram, Stanek.
