Romelu Lukaku will lead Everton’s attack against Leicester City after being handed his second Blues debut in the season-opener at the King Power Stadium.
But there is no Ross Barkley who will miss the start of the campaign after suffering a medial knee ligament injury in training.
John Stones is selected to play at right-back, with Seamus Coleman named on the bench as he continues to recover from a hamstring problem.
New signings Muhamed Besic and Christian Atsu are also amongst the substitutes.
Everton: Howard, Baines, Stones, Jagielka, McGeady, Naismith, Distin, McCarthy, Barry, Pienaar, Lukaku (Subs: Robles, Mirallas, Besic, Atsu, Osman, Coleman, Alcaraz).
Leicester: Schmeichel, De Laet, Morgan, Moore, Konchesky, Knockaert, Drinkwater, King, Mahrez, Ulloa, Nugent (Subs: Hamer, Hammond, Schlupp, Hopper, Taylor-Fletcher, Wasilewski, Wood).
