Lampard Names Everton XI For Villa

There is an Everton debut for Conor Coady and Mason Holgate is restored to the backline, as Frank Lampard makes two changes for Saturday's Premier League meeting with Aston Villa.

Amadou Onana, the exciting Belgian midfielder signed from Lille four days ago, begins the match on the bench.

Brazilian Allan has a minor knock and is unavailable for the game at Villa Park.

Captain Jordan Pickford plays his 300th professional league match in goal, with Vitalii Mykolenko and Nathan Patterson deployed as wing-backs.

Coady, recruited from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a season-long loan deal this week, is joined by Holgate and fellow recent arrival James Tarkowski in a new-look Everton back three.

Abdoulaye Doucoure and Alex Iwobi continue in the centre of midfield.

Anthony Gordon, meanwhile, appears poised to spearhead a forward trio also featuring Dwight McNeil and Demarai Gray.

Onana, Dele, Michael Keane and fit-again Seamus Coleman are all named among Everton's substitutes.

Manager Lampard additionally includes Tom Davies, Ruben Vinagre, Salmon Rondon – available following suspension – Stanley Mills and goalkeeper Asmir Begovic on his nine-strong his replacements list.
