If only we knew roughly what our best XI was then we could use this to form the basis of a solid and productive team. We won against Leicester so we should be using that as a template, however I would avoid rotating players too often and would only rotate certain players in certain positions if there was a) an injury b) a suspension c) exhaustion/fatigue d) a player going through a run of very poor form e) a much better player coming back from injury like Baines in for Martina.

I'd love for us to get some consistency and reward players for playing well by keeping them in the team for the next game rather than drop them for a player who is worse than them. But apparently we've got a manager who gets paid 100,000 a week for doing exactly this.

One needs to leave in the players who will/could be part of the next good Everton side in the XI as much as possible.

That is: Pickford, Coleman, Holgate, Davies, Sigurdsson, Tosun, Walcott (last two to see what we have)

Indeed, I would agree with this list plus I would add Gueye.

If only an Everton manager could see this and form a team based on balance and their collective strengths rather than form a team based on being shit scared of the opposition.
