Premier League 2015/16 Preview – Everton

evertonEverton will be looking to recover from their poor season last time out. Without the extra games of the Europa League straining a small squad, Roberto Martinez should be able to focus on regaining the Toffees’ top ten place. Tom Cleverley will be looking to show why he was held in such high regard by Sir Alex Ferguson without the media spotlight of Old Trafford, and Gerard Deulofeu has rejoined the club on a permanent basis. Everton’s strength is in their midfield, and should they lose James McCarthy they should have the strength to cope. Defence is the real issue though, with John Stones, who is linked with a move away, and Phil Jagielka the only senior centre-backs at the club. Last season was the first time in recent years that Everton finished with a negative goal difference, so this is where Roberto Matinez needs to spend his budget.

Key Player: Ross Barkley

One to Watch: Ryan Ledson
