Jordan Pickford makes his much awaited return from injury at Goodison Park this afternoon.

Vito Mannone drops out of the squad, Mika the back-up keeper. Fabio Borini replaces Jason Denayer in the only other change from the 4-0 defeat to Southampton a fortnight ago.

Denayer travelled with the squad but misses out through illness.

That could spark a late change to a back four.

Everton youngsters Ademola Lookman and Tom Davies both start for the hosts.

Sunderland XI: Pickford, Jones, O'Shea, Kone, Oviedo, Gibson, Larsson, Ndong, Januzaj, Borini, Defoe

Subs: Mika, Khazri, Lescott, Manquillo, Love, Honeyman, Gooch

Everton XI: Robles, Coleman, Funes Mori, Williams, Baines, Schneiderlin, Gueye, Davies, Barkley, Lookman, Lukaku

Subs: Stekelenburg, Jagielka, Mirallas, McCarthy, Barry, Valencia, Holgate
