Subs: Robles, Gibson, McGeady, Mirallas, Naismith, Besic, Alcaraz

Everton will be looking to make it three wins in seven days as they take on Crystal Palace as Goodison Park this afternoon.

The Toffees endured a tricky start to the season after draws with Leicester City and Arsenal as well as that stunning 6-3 defeat to Chelsea, but they bounced back last weekend with a 2-0 win over West Brom before hitting top gear against Wolfsburg in midweek as they notched an impressive 4-1 win over the Bundesliga side in the Europa League.

Manager Roberto Martinez has made a number of changes today though, with Seamus Coleman, Aiden McGeady, Kevin Mirallas and Steven Naismith dropping out of the starting line-up as Sylvain Distin, Leon Osman, Christian Atsu and Samuel Eto'o come in - as the Cameroonian hotshot partners Romelu Lukaku in attack.

Meanwhile, Palace have drawn twice since Neil Warnock returned to Selhurst Park as the club's manager, leaving him still searching for his first since after replacing Tony Pulis in August.

Warnock lines up with a five man midfield today as he looks to keep things tight in the middle, with Mile Jedinak, Joe Ledley and James McArthur forming a strong central trio. Jason Puncheon and Yannick Bolasie will support Frazier Campbell in attack, meaning that new signing Wilfried Zaha will remain on the bench since returning from Manchester United.
