Seamus Coleman, Yerry Mina, Alex Iwobi and Joshua King – the last competing in his first match – could be among an expected remodel by Ancelotti this week.

Tottenham have an incredibly strong record in this game, but Everton have already triumphed in a meeting with Spurs this season and are desperate to make the second with an opportunity to win the trophy. Kane’s involvement since the opening whistle is still in the air, and we don’t expect the two teams to split after 90 minutes, but Mourinho’s men must have enough firepower to claim a difficult victory in overtime.
