West Ham's switch to a back three saw them rectify their dire start to the Premier League season with a thumping win over Wolves.
Manager David Moyes remains absent in self-isolation for his return to Goodison Park having tested positive for coronavirus a week ago. The Scot will again be in regular communication with the West Ham staff on the bench and will pick the team.
Moyes has made a number of changes in their previous League Cup wins against Charlton and Hull City, but with Josh Cullen and Issa Diop still isolating and Ryan Fredericks injured, things look a little more similar at the back from Sunday's win over Wolves.
At the front, Andriy Yarmolenko and Sebastien Haller have impressed against lower league opposition without getting a chance in the first team. A performance against Everton may change that.
West Ham XI: Johnson, Balbuena, Rice, Cresswell, Noble, Snodgrass, Lanzini, Anderson, Yarmolenko, Haller
Subs: Trott, Ogbonna, Masuaku, Ashby, Soucek, Bowen, Fornals
Everton XI: Pickford, Kenny, Keane, Digne, Nkounkou, Allan, Delph, Sigurdsson, James, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin
Subs: Lossl, Mina, Coleman, Doucoure, Davies, Bernard, Iwobi
