It’s a combative midfield three for Everton today Amadou Onana, Idrissa Gana Gueye and Abdoulaye Doucoure all starting.
Beto leads the line up top with support from Dwight McNeil and Arnaut Danjuma.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin is only on the bench, joining Joao Virginia, Nathan Patterson, Michael Keane, Ben Godfrey, James Garner, Tyler Onyango, Lewis Dobbin and Youssef Chermiti.
Arteta has made a big decision with David Raya coming into the side in place of Aaron Ramsdale.
The Daily Mail reported in the international break that Arteta was tempted to drop Ramsdale for 28-year-old summer signing Raya.
That has now proven true with the Spaniard handed a start at Goodison Park.

Declan Rice will sit in midfield with Fabio Vieira coming into the side in place of Kai Havertz, joining Martin Odegaard in an attacking midfield role.
