Everton v Burnley - confirmed team news

  • Published

Everton's top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin is absent from the line-up as Rafael Benitez looks like he has shuffled his formation. The striker withdrew from the England squad with a thigh injury but has been managing a toe problem too.

New Salomon Rondon only makes the bench, while Yerry Mina and Ben Godfrey both come into the starting XI, so it could be a back three. No James Rodriguez in the squad either. He's yet to feature this season.

Everton XI: Pickford, Coleman, Mina, Keane, Godfrey, Digne, Townsend, Allan, Doucoure, Gray, Richarlison.

Subs: Begovic, Kenny, Holgate, Iwobi, Gbamin, Gomes, Gordon, Davies, Rondon.

Burnley are unchanged from their draw with Leeds before the international break, their only point of the season so far.

New £12.85m signing from Lyon Maxwell Cornet is on the bench.

Burnley XI: Pope, Lowton, Tarkovski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeill, Wood, Barnes.

Subs: Hennessy, Cork, Lennon, Rodriguez, Cornet, Pieters, Bardsley, Vydra, Thomas.
