It's been a long week for all us Toffees and I don't know if the game against Man Utd is the most ideal to have. In saying that this time the lads should be able to play with no fear because they are not expected to win the game.
Bainsey is out injured and Drenthe is not available because he is a duffer. Hibbo and Phil will be full backs with Johnny and Sylvain at the back.
We have the fortune to have Peanuts back on the left, Ossie will be back on the right unless he decides to throw young Ross Barkley in. But David Moyes has indicated that he will not give him a go. What has he got to lose. Gibbo and Felli should be paired in the middle
Expected upfront will be Tim and Jellyfish.
You couldn't get a tougher game to come back to and it will be interesting to see if the players give us a positive reaction from the shit week we have had to endure.
Kipper's starting eleven: Tim, Hibbo, Nev, Johnny, Buzz, Ossie, Gibbo, Felli, Peanuts, Tim and Jelly
What would your starting XI be?
David Moyes said: "We are obviously really disappointed from the game and it is going to take us a wee while to get over it.
"It is not the sort of thing you can just shrug off. It was the semi-final of the cup and I think anyone losing a semi-final finds it hard, but when you lose to your neighbours that makes it even worse.
"So from our point of view, it will take a while, but we have a really good, tough game now and strangely enough, it is one I think I'd prefer to have than not have.
"I actually think after the game we've just had, this is as good as you can get, because we can go there with a little bit of freedom.
"We are not kidding ourselves - it will be a tough game, as it is for every team that goes there.
"But we'll give it a go and try to show the form we have been in, in the main, over the past few months."
