Everton: Kone and Deulofeu lined up for debuts

Kone has been brought in by boss Roberto Martinez from his old club Wigan while Deulofeu is an exciting arrival on a season-long deal from Barcelona.
Both should start as the Martinez era begins but who will partner Kone up front is less clear - with both Victor Anichebe and Nikica Jelavic hoping to get the nod.

Elsewhere, another summer signing Antolin Alcaraz has a hamstring injury so will miss out while new goalkeeper Joel Robles is likely - for now at least - to be used as substitute with Tim Howard starting the campaign as number one.
Marouane Fellaini has a knock and is not available, while Darron Gibson and Tony Hibbert are major doubts for the Carrow Road trip.
