The redshite will get a wonderful Goodison Park welcome on Sunday. King Brenny and his backroom staff plus possibly half a dozen of his ugly team won't have experienced anything like a rocking Old Lady.
Kevin Mirallas and Steven Naismith could possibly make their "Derby Day Debut" for Everton on Sunday. Naisy has been involved in the old firm derby in Glasgow, but Super Kev won't have been involved in anything like this.
Tim Howard said: "It'll be a big one for him. Sometimes your best opportunity in a derby is when you're a foreigner and you don't really know the pressure and the rivalry. It lets you play a little loose so we'll see.
"He's a flair player. He's confident and he likes to get on the ball and it'll be a good taste for him. He's going to have to fill a void for us and we're confident he can do it well. Guys are going to have step up and other people like Kevin will get opportunities.
"The derby will be the usual rough and tumble. They play a good brand of football, we've been playing some really classy stuff so in the end it should be a good game."
