Doncaster vs Everton Predicted Lineups and News
Doncaster – Grant McCann’s Team Target Another Big Scalp
Doncaster find themselves with just one point from the first five matches of the League Two campaign. The club has to come up with a sizable improvement in results if they are to get clear of the relegation zone. Manager Grant McCann is already finding himself under a ton of pressure. However, such teams tend to do well in the cup competitions and it was once again in the first round meeting with Hull City. After getting a successful win over Championship outfit Hull City in the previous round, Doncaster are targeting another big scalp in the form of a Premier League opponent.
Team news: Doncaster
After the team has gone through a winless run of four matches, McCann is likely to view the upcoming League Cup game as a great opportunity for the team to get some blood pumping in their veins. McCann may go with the same set of players who featured in the win over Hull City in the previous round. There are no major injury problems for Doncaster coming into the game.
Doncaster Predicted Lineups (4-4-2):
Ian Lawlor, Tom Anderson, Joseph Olowu, James Maxwell, Harrison Biggins, Owen Bailey, Luke Molyneux, George Broadbent, George Miller, Ayodeji Sotona, Tyler Roberts
Everton – Can Dyche’s Team Get a Break From the Poor Run?
Everton have started the new season with three consecutive losses and they have looked terrible in all of these games. Sean Dyche might have done well to keep Everton in the division last season, but the Merseyside outfit are set for another relegation battle by the way things have opened up. Not too long ago, Everton used to target the League Cup as a means of winning a trophy. Now, Everton are now battling to reach the third round of the EFL Cup. The club has failed to get past the third round in the previous two editions of the EFL Cup.
Team news: Everton
Everton manager Sean Dyche continues to miss a number of players. Everton have been looking ragged in almost every area of the pitch. There may not be too many changes from Everton considering that the options are pretty low. Some of the key names who are missing include Dominic Calvert-Lewin, James Harrison, and Dwight McNeil. Alex Iwobi and Dele Alli are also unavailable in the middle of the park. The absence of Seamus Coleman is a big blow at the back for the visiting team.
Everton Predicted Lineups (4-1-4-1):
Joao Virginia, Ben Godfrey, Michael Keane, Jarrad Branthwaite, Vitalii Mykolenko, James Garner, Amadou Onana, Lewis Dobbin, Neal Maupay, Arnaut Danjuma, Youssef Chermiti
