Seamus Coleman for Jonjoe Kenny

While Kenny has been a more than able deputy at right-back for Everton this season as Coleman has returned from the horrific leg break he suffered earlier in 2017, the considerable gap between the two was really highlighted in the 2-1 win against Leicester and the 5-1 defeat against Arsenal.

Coleman made his return to the starting line-up in the former and made a huge impact from the right-hand side, linking up well with January addition Theo Walcott ahead of him.

It was a welcome sight for the Goodison Park faithful to see one of their biggest attacking threats return, while he is of course great from a defensive point of view too.

Meanwhile, Kenny returned to the XI against the Gunners but he struggled to make an impression at either end of the pitch, and Allardyce should have no hesitation in taking the 20-year-old out of the spotlight and putting the Republic of Ireland international back in against the Eagles.
