Manager Ancelotti Names Everton Team For Arsenal Test

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is back to lead the line for Everton and there is a start for Andre Gomes, as manager Carlo Ancelotti makes three changes for Friday’s visit to Arsenal.

Seamus Coleman, excellent from the bench in the draw with Tottenham Hotspur seven days ago, returns to captain Everton from right-back.

Fabian Delph and Bernard are included among Everton’s substitutes.

Michael Keane misses out after sustaining a minor injury against Tottenham.

"He had a little problem after the game, so he didn’t train this week," said Ancelotti.

"He was uncomfortable in his leg, so I prefer to leave him out. I think he will be available for the next game."

Calvert-Lewin has sat out the past two matches with an abductor problem but is fit to return.

He is supported by the trio of James Rodriguez, Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson, who scored both Everton goals against Spurs.

Allan plays for the second straight game and is partnered in midfield by Portuguese Gomes, who has been missing since hurting a hamstring against Crystal Palace 18 days ago.

Jordan Pickford continues in goal and plays behind a back-four comprising Coleman, Mason Holgate, Ben Godfrey and Lucas Digne.

Delph was last named in an Everton squad for a game with Manchester City in February, while Bernard has been unavailable since the meeting with Chelsea on 8 March.

They are joined on the bench by Joshua King, Alex Iwobi, Yerry Mina, Niels Nkounkou, Tom Davies, Nathan Broadhead and goalkeeper Robin Olsen.
