Everton fans want Niels Nkounkou to start against Fleetwood

The Toffees take on the League One side in the competition’s third round at Highbury Stadium tonight, with confidence in Carlo Ancelotti’s team currently surging.

The Frenchman will hope to get nod once again from Ancelotti, as he bids to make an impression to become Lucas Digne’s regular backup in the first-team.

The teenager did play the full game against Salford, so one would think there is a reasonable chance Ancelotti will put his faith in him once more.
