Everton v Salford City - Preview

Carlo Ancelotti could mix things up for Everton’s cup clash with Salford

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is likely to make changes for the visit of League Two Salford in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

Right-back Jonjoe Kenny is set for a run out, while the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson, Theo Walcott, Bernard and Tom Davies could all be called upon having been substitutes for Sunday’s win at Tottenham.

Youngster Jarrad Branthwaite could be drafted in as Ancelotti currently only has two fit senior centre-backs in Michael Keane and Yerry Mina.

Summer star signing James Rodriguez would benefit from more minutes but may have to do so from off the bench.

Salford boss Graham Alexander has to balance the early-season needs of his side with putting out a team which can be competitive.

Forward Luke Armstrong could miss out having been hauled off at half-time of the 2-2 draw with Exeter on Saturday.

Richie Towell and Brandon Thomas-Asante made impacts as substitutes at the weekend and could get their chance from the start.

Former Everton midfielder Darron Gibson is set to play against his former club.

Ex-Manchester United forward James Wilson may also be given a start for much-needed game-time as he has missed much of pre-season.

Carabao Cup Betting Tips: Everton v Salford

Wednesday’s televised Carabao Cup match comes at Goodison Park as Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton host Salford City.

Salford have little experience of playing against clubs of this stature, having only made a rapid ascent up non-league after investment from Valencia owner Peter Lim and Manchester United’s famous ‘Class of 92’. 

 

Last season they faced then-Championship side Leeds United in the first round of this competition but were well-beaten 3-0 on home soil and will be looking to avoid a similar shoeing this time around.

 

As League Two opposition, Salford come into this contest as massive underdogs, but are one of the better sides in the division and have been tipped by pundits to achieve a fifth promotion in the last seven seasons, having consolidated their place in League Two last term.

 

But they haven’t had the start they were looking for with a 2-2 draw at home to Exeter to kick off their league campaign at the weekend, having already lost 6-0 to Manchester United’s Under-21s in the EFL Trophy, although they did make it past the first round with a penalty shootout victory over Championship side Rotherham United.

 

Betfair Sportsbook back Everton at just 1/7 to win, with 7/1 for the draw and a massive 17/1 for a shock Salford victory in 90 minutes. 

 

Salford shareholder Gary Neville will have been a little concerned watching Everton’s 2020/21 opener from the commentary box on Sunday - a well-deserved 1-0 victory at Tottenham, their first away victory against a ‘big six’ side in 41 attempts, with their new-look midfield of Abdoulaye Doucoure, Allan and James Rodriguez all impressing on their competitive debuts.

 

However, they’re expected to drop back out here as Carlo Ancelotti looks to do the usual rotations for this cup competitions as the fixtures come thick and fast in this condensed season. One player that could benefit from an opportunity is Italy international striker Moise Kean.

 

We recommend backing Moise Kean to score anytime here. The 20-year-old only scored one goal for the Toffees last term but arrived with a big reputation, having averaged a goal every 89 minutes in his last season at Juventus. He’ll be eager to prove himself here, and will back himself against the fourth-tier visitors.

    Everton’s win over Salford comes at a cost as Jarrad Branthwaite suffers injury

    Everton made hard work of dispatching League Two Salford 3-0 in the Carabao Cup but another injury to a centre-back left manager Carlo Ancelotti with a headache.

    Michael Keane, Gylfi Sigurdsson and a late Moise Kean penalty set up a third-round tie at Fleetwood but teenager Jarrad Branthwaite limping off with a first-half ankle injury left the Toffees with just two fit senior centre-halves.

    With Mason Holgate potentially out until the end of October with a toe injury, Keane and Yerry Mina are now Ancelotti’s only two central defenders and that may force his hand in the transfer market.

    The Italian was keen on a loan deal for Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori but he is also attracting interest from Rennes and Everton’s pursuit has gone somewhat cold.

    Despite Everton’s poor record in this tournament they have not failed to get beyond the second round since 2001 and despite not scoring their second until 16 minutes from time there was little danger of that record being under threat.

    Five years ago to the day Salford were beating fellow Northern Premier League club Whitby Town in an FA Cup first qualifying round replay, but if the League Two side were to stand a chance of pulling off an upset they had to keep things tight.

    So allowing Theo Walcott to wastefully head over from close range from the hosts’ first attack would have set alarm bells ringing.

    And rightly so as just eight minutes in Keane, the only survivor from Sunday’s win over Tottenham after Ancelotti made 10 changes, headed home a Sigurdsson corner.

    Midfielders Tom Davies and Bernard both had chances to extend the lead but in truth Everton failed to properly test goalkeeper Vaclav Hladky.

    Striker Kean, with just two previous goals since his move from Juventus last summer, failed to take his chance on a rare start and crashing a header against the crossbar from six yards summed up not only his night but his Everton career so far and his 87th-minute penalty was something of a gift.

    Niels Nkounkou, an unheralded £250,000 arrival from Marseille’s B team, did impress, however, and will provide important cover for first-choice left-back Lucas Digne, who played 65 minutes as a makeshift centre-half after Branthwaite’s injury.

    Everton made heavy weather of finishing off their opponents and had to wait until the 74th minute, when Nkounkou played in Anthony Gordon, for Sigurdsson to sidefoot home his 100th goal in English football.
