Everton are going through their final preparations for the visit to Southampton on Sunday and caretaker manager David Unsworth has named his starting eleven.
? | Team news is in and there are 8️⃣ changes to the Everton starting XI.

It’s a vital encounter, a victory will seem them shoot up the table while defeat will see them hovering just above the relegation zone, leaving any incoming manager quite a task.
Unsworth has made some big changes from Thursday night’s disaster at home to Atalanta but some have survived, including Michael Keane and Kevin Mirallas.
Fans aren’t exactly buzzing to see Mirallas start again, many feeling like he is not the answer when players like Sandro Ramirez and Ademola Lookman are on the bench.
With just 72 minutes of Premier League football under his belt so far this term, does he have enough to test the Southampton defence and help the Toffees pick up all three points?
Supporters have taken to Twitter ahead of kick-off to share their thoughts…
Sunday joys of watching mirallas stink the place out again ??? #EFC

Mirallas over Sandro, Lookman or Vlasic is shocking.

I thought Unsworth said the players made it easy for him to drop them,then why persist with Miralles,Schneider,BainesKeane,Gueye etc. #efc

Get Mirallas out of there! An old oak tree ? would be more effective

Sandro must be absolutely gutted. Gets his first goal and then is benched. Mirallas starts yet barely touched the ball on Thursday. At least there is balance to the side, but it's just ridiculous.

How is Mirallas starting over Vlasic

Personally I wouldn't have Mirallas anywhere near the squad now.
Schneiderlin hasn't performed at all this season & yet still gets a first team place also.#EFC

Convinced Kevin Mirallas is gonna start every Everton game from now until the end of time and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.

Not sure how mirallas gets another start it is baffling to me
