Everton head into Tuesday’s match having endured a tough start to the new Premier League season, snatching their first point in a 1-1 draw at home to Nottingham Forest after defeats to Chelsea and Aston Villa. The Toffees have found the net on just two occasions so far and one of those was a Lucas Digne own-goal in the loss to Villa. Frank Lampard might well see this trip to lower league opposition as a good chance to find some confidence in the final third so, while rotation is expected, don’t be surprised to still see a strong starting XI.
As for Fleetwood, they’ve taken just six points from their opening five League One matches, winning once and drawing three times. Like Everton, Scott Brown’s side have struggled in front of goal, failing to find the net in their last two and scoring just four goals in league play. However, the Cod Army did pull off an impressive 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic in the previous round to reach this stage of the EFL Cup.
