Calvert-Lewin Starts


Dominic Calvert-Lewin is promoted to the Everton starting line-up for this afternoon’s clash against Hull City.

Also coming into the Blues team today is Idrissa Gana Gueye, while Leighton Baines has been passed fit after overcoming his back complaint.

It’s just the second time that Calvert-Lewin has started a Premier league fixture, following on from his appearance against Southampton in January when he suffered an ankle injury which kept him sidelined for the best part of two months.

He made his return as a late substitute in the 3-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion a week ago.

Gareth Barry drops down to the bench, while there is no place in the 18 for Kevin Mirallas.

Mirallas’ absence from the squad means there is a place amongst the substitutes for Aaron Lennon.

Hull travel to Goodison without Oumar Niasse, the scorer of both goals in their 2-1 success against Swansea City last time out. The striker is ineligible to play against his parent club as part of his loan agreement.
