Everton v Rotherham team news

Everton: The Toffees are missing several players who would have been likely to start this one. Allan and Lucas Digne are out, while Alex Iwobi is a doubt.

Ancelotti is likely to rotate his squad with Bernard, Jonjoe Kenny and Robin Olsen among the players who could be given a chance to shine.

Chiedozie Ogbene, Kieran Sadler, Clark Robertson, Shaun MacDonald, Joe Mattock and Trevor Clarke are all sidelined.

Our prediction: Everton v Rotherham

Everton are beginning to fill out their squad with quality, and this is an opportunity for those fringe stars to prove their worth.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has risen to the challenge in recent weeks, and others will hope to follow his path back in from the cold.

Rotherham will put up a solid fight, but if Everton poke their noses in front, there may be no stopping them.

Our prediction: Everton 3-0 Rotherham
