Everton are next in action against Newcastle United in the Premier League and Frank Lampard is facing some selection posers. The Blues suffered their second consecutive defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening. Second-half goals from Harry Kane and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg secured all three points for Antonio Conte's side. However, with his squad now almost at full strength, Frank Lampard is set to face some significant selection dilemmas. And with that in mind, we have taken a look at the changes he could make to his starting line-up for Wednesday’s game.

Despite his mistake that resulted in the penalty in which Spurs took the lead on Saturday, one imagines Jordan Pickford will start in goal against Eddie Howe’s side, while Conor Coady, James Tarkowski and Vitaliy Mykolenko will also be given the nod to start at the back. However, with Mason Holgate close to returning, Blues boss Lampard may opt to start the defender at right-back in place of Seamus Coleman. Although that would be harsh given how well Coleman has played since returning in place of Nathan Patterson.

After long being a problem position for the Blues, suddenly Lampard finds himself with an array of options in midfield. Another couple of summer signings, Amadou Onana and Idrissa Gueye, along with the rejuvenated Alex Iwobi, currently find themselves as the incumbent trio in the centre of the park, but others are pushing to be included such as Abdoulaye Doucoure, Tom Davies, and the other summer recruit, James Garner.
Out wide, Lampard has a real selection headache as three simply doesn't go into two. Anthony Gordon and Demarai Gray have both featured heavily this season, but having been suspended for Saturday’s game, Dwight McNeil came in for the 21-year-old. However, nobody would be surprised to see Gordon come back in against Newcastle.
