Everton fell 3-1 to hosts SC Paderborn as questions still remain concerning who Roberto Martinez will call upon at several key positions when the season kicks off next weekend.
The debate as to who will partner Phil Jageilka at center back did not get any clearer as both Stones and Sylvain Distin rode the bench while Antolin Alcaraz got the nod. The odds are the veteran Distin will be favored to start the season but it would not surprise if Stones eventually displaced him. Both may be called upon at the start though as Seamus Coleman's hamstring keeps him in doubt. The Belgian duo of Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas, who are still recovering from World Cup fatigue, are not guaranteed to start Week 1 either, though Lukaku is still expected to. Despite the appeal of loading up on Toffees given that they play one of the promoted clubs, Leicester City may see an opportunity to grab a result. Should Mirallas be ruled out formally, Aiden McGeady could be a decent punt for Week 1, he's cheap and has been productive in the preseason. Aug 9 - 11:07 PM
