Everton are aiming to secure a seventh successive victory – that would be second-best winning streak from the start of a campaign in the Club’s history [behind only eight straight wins in 1894/95].
Maximum points for the Blues would see Carlo Ancelotti’s men become the first Everton team since 1969/70 to win their opening four league matches.

ONE TO WATCH: Leandro Trossard
Talented forward Trossard has made an eye-catching start to the 2020/21 season, with his direct running and crisp ball-striking impressing.
The Belgian was on target in Brighton’s Premier League opener against Chelsea – expertly finding the bottom corner from 20 yards out – before laying on a goal for Neal Maupay in the Seagulls’ comprehensive win at Newcastle United.
The 25-year-old was desperately unlucky not to add to his goalscoring tally against Manchester United last weekend. He became the first player since Cristiano Ronaldo in 2006 to hit the woodwork three times in one Premier League match.
Trossard was handed his senior international debut by former Everton boss Roberto Martinez in Belgium’s 2-0 victory over Denmark last month.
