The home side began their Europa Conference League group stage with a 2-3 defeat at the hands of Legia Warsaw. But they bounced back with a win over Chelsea in their most recent outing and that should give them confidence to beat Everton in front of their home crowd.
Everton started their season with three defeats in a row, one of which was at the hands of Aston Villa. They will be looking ensure the mistakes aren't repeated and a 3-1 win over Brentford in their most recent outing should give them just enough hope ahead of their Cup tie.
