New Everton signings Ashley Williams and Yannick Bolasie are set for their full debuts in Tuesday’s EFL Cup second-round tie against Yeovil.

Striker Romelu Lukaku is in line for his first start of the season following a heel injury.

On-loan Swansea defender Liam Shephard could return for Yeovil, while striker Francis Zoko and defender Ryan Dickson are fit again.

But defender Alex Lacey (arm) is out for up to eight weeks.

Match facts

  • This will be the first meeting of any kind between these two sides.
  • Since beating Sunderland in the 1949 FA Cup fourth round, Yeovil have lost all 12 of their meetings with top-flight opposition in all competitions.
  • Everton have progressed from 15 of their past 17 League Cup ties against opposition from lower leagues, losing out only to Brentford in 2010-11 and Leeds in 2012-13.
  • The Glovers have never progressed past the second round of the League Cup.
