Of course any points will be welcome but above all, I just want the team to concentrate on their performance as I think that's what is driving us forward as a team right now and to be brave to keep doing what we are doing, the results will take care of themselves. Like you say, it's usually a **** place to go so expectations are low and we won't have the ****hole as much should we likely lose up there. Just concentrate on our own game right now that's working so well and treat it as a free shot with nothing to lose.

2-2

ultimate test for the three at the back, a fully fit and firing lukaku. can it succeed where all before have failed?

keep a clean sheet on sunday and i'll put 50p on us for a CL spot.

3 straight wins behind us, we have to go in with no fear. I honestly feel we can go back to Goodison and get a result.
We can repeat last season's stunning comeback. It was one of the games of our season but I'd rather avoid the drama of going 2-0 down first! 8-)
Payet and Fernandes in a 2-1 away win.

It's free money, guv.

Lukaku to score any time. Never fails to pay out.

Backing him in the last 10 minutes is usually profitable.

Koeman is a good manager - but I fancy us more than them. A score draw is most probable.

We could beat this mob 2:3 in the last minute fior 10 seasons running and they'd still owe us.

Looking forward to this. Anfield cafe for breakfast, Arkles for some fortitude then ride the tide of optimism for a bit until Lukaku pops up.

Could we be down Noble and Reid for this game. They both picked up a card today and they were both on 4 yellows this season(I think).

Do we change our formation if that's the case? Back to a traditional 4 with Collins slotting next to Ogbonna? Don't really want to be playing Oxford against Lukaku given what he did to Oxford last season. I also don't see Collins or Oxford marshalling a back 3 either.

Noble only had 3 PL yellows, 4 total now so he misses a game next one.

Reid also had 3 PL yellows (plus 1 in Europe which doesn't count) so again his next yellow he misses one.

The test for a back three is playing against two quality wingers who exploit the space where the FB's usually would be.

Mirallas and Bolaise are probably we've faced there so far as a back 3. Will be interesting to see how it goes.

Much like Big Sam stumbling onto our diamond formation, Slav's move to three at the back has been nothing short of revelation given how calamitous it was prior.

I see no reason why the formation should change and it'll be down to Cresswell on one side, and either Antonio or Fernandes on the other, to push their wide players further back. And with the three at the back, it gives Reidy more scope to read the game and confidently step out rather than just sitting back.

After a good start from them they're not in good form; the reverse being the same for us. I dare say I fancy us to get something from this one (famous last words for a Goodison visit).

Hopefully Fernandes isn't injured after asking to go off last night - absolutely deserves to keep his spot after his last 2 performances. I would start the exact same team and introduce Ayew again rather than risk giving him a start so soon. Tough one on the GK position too, Randolph always has amazing games and think he deserves a chance too

Pub - Arkles - across the park from Goodison , you'll find plenty of our lot in there

Parking - Either in the park or on the side roads , loads available on that side of the park ( the pub side)

Things to avoid - The Scouse pie in the ground .Basically vomit with pastry on top .

Enjoy your day

Same team as last night please. Same intensity as last night please. Same passion as last night please.

And this will be the first time ever Lukaku doesn't score against us.

1-2

Mirallas

Antonio
Noble (p)

2-2 I suspect. Lukaku and one of their midfielders, Payet (FK) & Antonio for us.

Looking at Everton's midfield it's noticeable they have many impact players such as Barkley, Bolasie, Mirallas and Gueye, but not many footballers (only Barry). This makes me confident that we might be able to take advantage of that just like we did against Palace and dominate that area with Lanzini, Payet, Noble and Obiang being much more comfortable and intricate in possession. My main worry would be tiredness. The players put in a lot last night and asking them to reproduce the same pressing efforts might be asking too much so as a result I will be pretty happy with a draw here.
