Royal Blue: Everton's midfield injuries stack up ahead of Brighton as Joshua King future assessed
Everton are back in action against Brighton on Monday evening, but they could have somewhat of an injury crisis in midfield. Andre Gomes will miss the game while Allan faces a late check on his fitness - with Abdoulaye Doucoure already out of action. So, who will start? And what system will Carlo Ancelotti play? Host Adam Jones is joined by Dave Prentice, Connor O'Neill and Gavin Buckland to discuss all of that ahead of the trip to the South Coast. The lads also talk over the future of Joshua King, after Ancelotti's interesting comments on the forward's future in Friday's press conference. Enjoy.

Host Adam Jones is joined by Dave Prentice, Sam Carroll and Gavin Buckland to look back on last night's 1-1 Goodison Park draw with Crystal Palace that meant Everton missed another opportunity to truly close the gap on the Champions League places. The panel marvel at the performance of the goalscorer, James Rodriguez, but lament the finishing of the normally reliable Dominic Calvert-Lewin, as well as Richarlison, and assess whether Carlo Ancelotti got it right with his selection and his substitutions.
Royal Blue: Gbamin ready, Koulibaly transfer, and Everton's player of the season so far

Sam Carroll is joined by Adam Jones, Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland as the quartet discuss the return of Jean-Philippe Gbamin, what it means for Everton and their transfer plans, links to Kalidou Koulibaly and the future of Joao Virginia. Gavin also considers the 'unimpressive' decision of the Republic of Ireland to field Seamus Coleman three times in six days during the international break while wondering whether he could keep a clean sheet against San Marino. Dave gives his take on Carlo Ancelotti insisting Everton only need 'two or three' new signings in the summer while Adam chooses his player of the season.
