We'll have to trust in the Blues boss' judgement that such a cautious approach helps with his centre-forward's fitness on a long-term basis after he outlined in his pre-match press conference that the player had just ran out of matches in pre-season to get himself ready.


13:59KEY EVENTEverton team to face FulhamEverton XI: Pickford; Patterson, Tarkowski, Keane, Young, Garner, Onana, Gueye, Doucoure, Iwobi, Maupay. No Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the squad today. Dominic Calvert-Lewin of Everton13:36Joe ThomasDecisions, decisions, decisionsAny optimism could be heightened or dampened by the line-ups, due in about 30 minutes. Could go either way - Dyche played down the likelihood of Danjuma and DCL being involved, and we know McNeil is out. So this could be a case of the season starting a week too early for the Blues and a squad which is still too thin. BUT I can’t help but think there may have been an element of Dyche keeping his cards close to his chest on this.


13:30Chris BeesleySean Dyche drops Everton transfer hintWriting in his programme notes for today's game, Everton manager Sean Dyche maintains that while his team were pleased to achieve their short-term goal of staying in the Premier League last season, that is not something that should be celebrated at a club like Everton, nor should it be accepted as the norm. The Blues boss says that the connection between the players and supporters is real and "we must continue to nurture that. "Speaking on transfers, Dyche says: "Of course, we are still very keen to strengthen the squad and are working hard in the background to achieve getting the right players in who will improve us, " adding: "We are stretched in certain areas at the moment and our collective aim is to achieve a more balanced squad.

Everton have lost just one of their last 11 opening games of the Premier League season, which game against Chelsea at Goodison Park last August.


Given that funds are tight at the Blues, there could be many more tough times ahead but the hope has to be with Sean Dyche at the helm from the start - a manager well-versed in getting teams to punch above their weight on a shoestring budget - that progress can at least be made to avoid a third consecutive battle against the drop. 12:46Keifer MacDonaldElsewhere Premier LeagueArsenal's hosting of Nottingham Forest has been delayed until 1pm due to issues with the recently-introduced e-ticket system at the Emirates Stadium.


"13:07Chris BeesleyThe penultimate Premier League opening day for Goodison Park? Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the first Everton live matchday blog of the 2023/24 season, the penultimate opening day of the campaign for Goodison Park, England's first purpose-built football ground. Thankfully for Everton, it's another season in the top flight for the only founder members of both the Football League and Premier League to be ever-presents in the latter. Let's not lose sight of the fact that 2022/23 produced the lowest equivalent points total in Everton's entire 135-year history in the Football League/Premier League and they came within one goal of their first relegation in 72 years.
