So we are finally back in business after an even duller international break than usual with England producing a woefully ponderous performance at Wembley last night and a win in a meaningless fixture against Andorra.
Last night’s game was marred by the sort of ancient crowd trouble we thought had been put behind us years back and which apparently centred on racial abuse of a steward by the Hungarian fans.
Thankfully, we appear to be injury-free for the game at Everton apart from the doubt over Vladi Coufal although those returning will of course be checked for injury and covid once they are at the training ground.
Assuming all is well we could see an unchanged team although my bet would be that Moyes will opt to give him a further rest given the number of games we are facing five games between now and the end of the month.
There may also be a question mark over Oggy following the criticism Moyes directed at him for conceding what he described as a stupid free kick in the last game.
Everton are reported to have several injuries and this would be a very good game to bounce back from the Bees defeat and go level with teh Toffees on points.
Possible team: Fabianski; Fredericks, Zouma, Diop, Cresswell; Rice, Soucek, Bowen, Fornals, Benrahma, Antonio
