After returning to the top division, Everton Ladies decided to go full-time with an 18-player squad. They therefore had to make a lot of changes with seven new players coming in and eight players leaving.

They added goalkeeper Lizzie Durrack, top scorer Courtney Sweetman-Kirk, and midfielders Angharad James and Jodie Brett. They have also taken Arsenal player, Chloe Kelly, on loan.

We played them in a pre-season friendly at Boreham Wood and beat them with a comfortable 3-0 scoreline. Their set-up was so confusing that it was difficult to know if they were using a back three or four. They certainly set up their stall to defend deep and you can expect them to do that again on Sunday.

One of the most important parameters will be the pitch as it is a 3G. Although it is approved by the FA the players seem to be annoyed by it and some even refuse to play on it.
