Two Changes for Blues

Deulofeu and Stones step into the fray for visit of Hammers.

Watch Video Two Changes for Blues

Roberto Martinez has made two changes from the side that suffered an unfortunate 1-0 reverse at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

Romelu Lukaku returns to the squad after a spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury but has to settle for a place on the bench with Steven Naismith continuing in attack, whilst John Stones steps into the heart of defence in place of injured skipper Phil Jagielka.

Kevin Mirallas is the second change, with the Belgian international dropping to the bench to accomodate the return of Spanish starlet Gerard Deulofeu.

Leon Osman dons the captain's armband for the game against a rejuvenated West Ham side that has recorded four consecutive league victories ahead of today's visit to Goodison.

Despite the absence through injury of five players, Martinez is still able to name a strong bench which includes Mirallas, Lukaku, Aiden McGeady and Ross Barkley.

The match is Everton's first in the league at home for a month - with the 2-1 success over Aston Villa their last Premier League outing at Goodison.

Andy Carroll has been missing for three of those games through suspension and, like Lukaku, is named as a sub upon his return to the squad with Carlton Cole leading the line for Sam Allardyce's men.

EFC XI: Howard; Coleman, Stones, Distin, Baines; Barry McCarthy; Deulofeu, Osman, Pienaar; Naismith. Subs: Robles, Hibbert, Browning, McGeady, Barkley, Mirallas, Lukaku.
