Lincoln City Form & Team News 

Lincoln City will come into Wednesday's game feeling a little deflated after suffering back to back 2-1 defeats at the hands of Doncaster and MK Dons in League One. 

Before that, Lincoln had won all four of their competitive fixtures, including an excellent 1-0 win away at Huddersfield in the last round of the English League Cup. Harry Anderson was the player on the scoresheet for The Imps that night. 

Danny Cowley will want to name a strong side for the match with Everton. Striker Tyler Walker is likely to lead the line for the League One side, with Jorge Grant, Jack Payne and Harry Anderson behind the striker. Defender Harry Toffolo will likely return to the side after not playing against Doncaster Rovers. 

Lincoln are out at 6.50 with bet365 to cause the upset and defeat Everton on Wednesday night. A draw is currently priced at 4.33.

Everton Form & Team News 

Everton suffered their first defeat of the season against Aston Villa away from home on Friday night. Marco Silva's side will see the English League Cup as a potential competition they can go far in this season and he will field a strong side against the Imps. 

The club have struggled in front of goal so far this season. They have drawn a blank in two of their opening three games. Their only goal of the season was scored by Bernard against Watford in their 1-0 win. 

Marco Silva is likely to make some changes for the game on Wednesday night. Moise Kean may be given a start against the side, while Theo Walcott is likely to be given some time to prove what he can do this season. 

Everton are clear favourites for the match and are priced at 1.50 with bet365 to pick up the victory and progress to the next round. 

Lincoln City vs Everton Match Analysis - Tough test for Everton 

Everton will be all too aware of the threat Lincoln can pose. The Premier League took on Lincoln in last season's FA Cup third run and narrowly snuck through 2-1 at Goodison Park. 

Lincoln have become well known for their cup exploits and Marco Silva will take this game very seriously. The last thing he will want at the moment is to be too complacent and slip up against a League One side. 

Lincoln have scored in each of their games this season so they won't make things easy for Everton but the Premier League club should have enough quality to sneak through.

Lincoln City vs Everton Betting Tips - Goals at Sincil Bank 

Lincoln have managed to score in each of their games this season and with Everton only being available at 1.50 in the winners market, a bet on both teams to score at 1.75 with bet365 looks like it offers the best value to punters.
