Everton welcome Orient for league cup clash
Premier League Everton host League One Leyton Orient in tonight’s sole Capital One Cup second round match.
The in-form Toffees have claimed six points from six in the top flight this season and may rest a number of major players for the league cup encounter.
Summer signing Kevin Mirallas could be handed his first start, although the forward is unlikely to be joined in the team by defender Tony Hibbert who is carrying an injury.
Orient have yet to get off the mark in the third tier this season, failing to claim any points from their league matches against Tranmere and Stevenage.
The O’s will be without injured defender Scott Cuthbert, with Ben Chorley likely to deputise, while new midfield signings Lee Cook and Martin Rowlands could feature.
Betfair’s fixed-odds service has Everton as 2/11 favourites for the match, with Orient priced at 14/1. The draw is available at 6/1.
