No easing off from Moyes
David Moyes will send a strong team to face Leeds United in the Capital One Cup third round, says Everton assistant Steve Round.
The Merseysiders make the trip to West Yorkshire in fine form having lost just one of six games in all competitions since the start of the season and are now up to third in the Premier League table.
Tony Hibbert (calf) and Darron Gibson (knee) will miss out on the televised clash from Elland Road, but striker Nikica Jelavic is back in the Everton squad after missing the trip to Swansea with a shin injury.
Moyes could be forgiven for wrapping some of his senior stars up in cotton wool ahead of the weekend visit to Goodison Park of newcomers Southampton, but his assistant revealed there will be no easing off against Neil Warnock's Premier League hopefuls.
Round said: "The manager might make one or two changes but the squad is the same. Jelavic is fit and comes back in but otherwise it will be the same."
He added: "We are still without Tony Hibbert and Darron Gibson. The manager will pick the team on Tuesday and it will be a strong team no matter who he goes with."
Everton are looking to make the fourth round of the competition for the eighth time in 11 seasons and have won their last three ties with second-tier clubs in the League Cup.
