Davies Captains Everton As Boss Makes Three Changes

Tom Davies returns to Everton's midfield and will skipper the Blues as Marco Silva makes three changes to his team for Sunday's meeting with Arsenal.

Centre-back Michael Keane is fit to start four weeks after suffering a skull fracture in the draw with Bournemouth, while there is an immediate recall for Richarlison after the Brazilian completed a three-match ban.

Keane partners Kurt Zouma in the heart of Everton's back-four, with Jonjoe Kenny and Lucas Digne retaining their respective full-back spots.

Idrissa Gana Gueye is set to play alongside Davies in the Blues' engine room.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin will spearhead Everton's attack, ahead of the trio of Richarlison, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Theo Walcott, returning to his former stomping ground for a second time since joining the Blues from Arsenal in January.

Jordan Pickford continues in goal and extends his streak of successive Everton Premier League starts to 44.

Morgan Schneiderlin, Leighton Baines and Mason Holgate all start on the bench, along with forward triumvirate Cenk Tosun, Bernard and Ademola Lookman.

Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg completes the Toffees' complement of substitutes.
