Gana Back In Lone Toffees Change

Idrissa Gana Gueye returns to Everton’s midfield as boss Sam Allardyce makes one change to his team for today’s clash with Swansea City.

Senegalese Gueye, excellent as a substitute on his comeback from a hamstring injury against Liverpool last week, replaces Tom Davies and joins Morgan Schneiderlin and Wayne Rooney in a three-strong Toffees engine room.

Cenk Tosun will be aiming to replicate his most recent performance away from home - when he struck a match-winning double at Stoke City - as the spearhead of Everton’s attack, with Theo Walcott and Yannick Bolasie operating on the flanks.

Jordan Pickford maintains his ever-present record in the Blues’ goal and will play behind a central defensive pairing of Michael Keane and Phil Jagielka.

Full-back duo Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines start in tandem for the fifth game on the spin.

There is a place on the bench for Croat attacker Nikola Vlasic, with Davies, Beni Baningime, Cuco Martina, Oumar Niasse, Ramiro Funes Mori and goalkeeper Joel Robles also named among Everton’s substitutes.
