Rooney set to lead Everton attack line against Brighton

Everton head into the weekend hoping to make a statement and cement a win against Brighton. The Toffees will be visiting newly promoted side with the hope of taking maximum points. In the wake of that, the Toffees will be displaying their best legs with Wayne Rooney set to lead the attack line. Ronald Keoman will not be taking chances in this game as he knows the pressure is Pilling up on him at Goodison park

Jordan Pickford is the undisputed number one choice in between the sticks. The England shot stopper will be starting and will hope to help his side avoid defeat.

Phil Jagielka and Micheal Keane are expected to partner in the heart of the defence with Ashley Williams missing out of the line up. Captain, Laitin Baines and Mason Holgate will be holding the wing back position. Holgate will have to convince Keoman he is worthy to be trusted if he makes the line up as the youngster has little experience with the team. They will be shielding Pickford and will help maintain a reputable scoreline.

Ronald Keoman will likely be going for a more defensive team and it's expected to see him choke the midfield. Morgan Schneiderlin, Idris Gueye and Vlasic will control the middle of the park. Gylfi Sigurdsson will be providing the needed creative and attacking drive in the team.

After being dropped in the last game, former England captain, Wayne Rooney is expected to return to the line up. He will be partnering with a much younger player like Lukman upfront. This will help provide pace in the attack line. Everton should be getting something in this gamein with their line up if all these players come to the party.

Probable line up: Pickford, Holgate, Keane, Jagielka, Baines, Schneiderlin, Gueye, Vlasic, Sigurdsson, Lukman, Rooney.
