(Kirsten's Note: I have not had enough coffee to play fill in the blanks when Everton aren't 4-4-2ing it. I don't think. Here are their lineups and benches, in the weird way that AVFC Official tweeted them):

Everton Starting XI: Howard, Hibbert, Baines, Jagielka, Bilyaletedinov, Distin, Cahill, Osman, Coleman, Fellaini, Rodwell.

Everton Bench: Mucha, Drenthe, Stracqualursi, Neville, Gueye, Barkley, Vellios.

Holy shit dude this is pretty much our team for like the next five months.

(From AVFC Official: Jermaine Jenas suffered a kicking strain in training yesterday and it was decided late yesterday that he would miss out.)
