Everton sold one of the key asset Romelu Lukaku but that does not make this team a weak team, Everton have risen in English football and known for their tenacity, Last season they finished 7th in Premier League and this year they look threatening enough to better their last year performance. Ronald Koeman has done some shrewd signing which makes this team a difficult proposition to beat.
Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford, Maarten Stekelenburg, Joel Rebles.
The stability in the Goalkeeping department may be a problem for Everton going into the season. All three keepers do not have experience enough to justify regular starts in the premier league. Joel Robles was regular last season but looks like he will get some tough competition from youngster Jordan Pickford who has joined Everton.
Defenders: Leighton Baines, Micheal Keans, Ashly Williams, Phil Jagielka, Cuco Martina, Seamus Coleman, Romero Funes Mori, Mason Holgate, Jonjoa Kenny.
Everton has done a lot of business in this transfer window, They have signed Cuco Martina from Southampton and Micheal Kean From Burnley in defense. Ashly Williams and Leighton Baines were impressive as always in pre season matches. The defense looks settled for the team,
Midfielders: Morgan Scheilderlin, Ross Barkley, Aaron Lenon, James McCarthy, Idrissa Gueye, Gareth Barry, Davvy Klassen, Muhammed Busic, Tom Davies.
Davy Klassen is one of the best signing Everton has done this season, they Dutch midfielder was classic last season with Ajax, He made the huge impact in Europa League taking Ajax to the finals of the competition before losing out to Manchester United F. C.
James McCarthy and Gareth Barry experience will come handy for the Ronald Koeman, They will be the great influence on the youngsters and new signings in the team.
Forwards: Yannick Bolasie, Sandro Ramirez, Wayne Rooney, Kevin Mirallas, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Ademola Lookman, Oumar Niasse.
Wayne Rooney returned to his childhood club, this is the biggest news in the Toffees fans. The Manchester United legend has switched his alliance with his childhood club. The forward has loads of experience under his belt playing at the highest level of the game. His experience will definitely work in favor of Everton FC.
Yannick Bolasie was an underrated star in the Everton line up, he did great on the flanks giving fabulous support to Lukaku. Sandro Ramirez is one more key signing by the Toffees, The Spaniard will be playing first time in the English Premier League. The Barcelona academy graduate will wear number 9 jersey for the team, He will definitely look to match Lukaku exploits.
Manager Profile: Ronald Koeman

Despite losing Lukaku Everton looks a solid team which can surprise any big teams in Europe on their day.
