Sean Dyche set to make some changes Prior to his team’s journey to Villa Park

Prior to his team’s journey to Villa Park this evening, Sean Dyche might try to make some changes.

After experiencing weeks of misery, Everton finally earned their first Premier League victory of the year with a stunning 3-1 triumph away to Brentford at the weekend. The Toffees’ much-needed victory in west London was sealed by the returning Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The Merseyside team now has some breathing room at the bottom after gaining a three-point lead over the three newly promoted teams behind them in the relegation zone. This allows them to turn their attention to tonight’s Carabao Cup match at home against Aston Villa.

Sean Dyche‘s men will need to put on an improved display after only narrowly edging past League Two side Doncaster Rovers in the previous round, however, having also crashed out at this stage of the competition in each of the last two seasons.

What changes will Everton make vs Aston Villa?

Fresh from having netted clinically against the Bees last time out, that man Calvert-Lewin could look to build up his fitness by leading from the front this evening, with there perhaps an argument to be made that Dyche could even partner the Englishman with summer signing, Beto through the middle.

The latter man was crucial to helping drag the Toffees past Doncaster last month after scoring on debut, with it a mouthwatering prospect to imagine the former Udinese man lining up alongside Calvert-Lewin in what would be a truly imposing and physical striking duo.

That could then see fellow new arrival Arnaut Danjuma remain restricted to the bench, with the former Tottenham Hotspur loanee – who originally rejected the Goodison outfit in January – having been used as a late substitute at the weekend.

While there may be a case for playing the Netherlands down the middle rather than on the wings, Dyche may decide to give wing wizard Jack Harrison his long-awaited debut instead, as the on-loan Leeds United player has been sidelined recently due to injury.

Will Jack Harrison suit up for the Aston Villa match?
Although injury expert Dr. Rajpal Brar has claimed that the 26-year-old is expected to be “available” against the Villans after playing for the U21s last week, it is still unclear if the Englishman will play this evening.

If he is able to play, the former Manchester City player could give the Merseysiders a big boost. Former Everton manager Frank Lampard once praised the player as “one of the best wingers in the Premier League” and said he “wouldn’t fancy playing against” his fellow countryman.

The 5 foot 9 wiz demonstrated his skill during his stint at Elland Road by contributing 66 goals and assists in 206 games across all competitions, notably having 37 goal involvements in 107 Premier League outings. He is a player who can make the difference in the final third.
