Andre Villas-Boas has opted to start with two strikers for the visit to Goodison Park whilst the hosts welcome back influential forward Kevin Mirallas
Seamus Coleman comes in for Tony Hibbert at right back, with Kevin Mirallas making a return from injury to replace Steven Naismith, who drops to the bench.
Andre Villas-Boas opts for Frenchman Hugo Lloris in goal, and also brings in Emmanuel Adebayor to lead the line alongside top-scorer Jermain Defoe in what appears to be a very attacking formation for the visitors.
