Gauging a new manager's thoughts is never a simple task.
Mauricio Pochettino won't have had long to assess his new subjects and may well implement a similar style and selection as Southampton's last game, at Chelsea.
The back five is likely to stay the same, and two of Schneiderlin, Cork and Steven Davis should remain in midfield.
Lambert and Ramirez will presumably return in attacking roles, possibly in place of Davis and Guly do Prado. That would then allow the Saints to adopt a familiar 4-2-3-1 approach, with a fluid line of three behind the striker.
Tim Howard; Seamus Coleman, Phil Jagielka, Sylvain Distin, Leighton Baines; Victor Anichebe, Phil Neville, Leon Osman, Steven Pienaar; Marouane Fellaini; Nikica Jelavic.
Behind a strong Everton first XI, there are few players on the periphery pressing for inclusion.
With Mirallas, Gibson and Hibbert still missing, Bryan Oviedo is the only player who may enter David Moyes' thinking, as the Costa Rican enjoyed an impressive recent outing for Everton's second string.
The main issue for Moyes will be whether to continue with Anichebe in a wider berth or possibly opt for Oviedo, or perhaps even Steven Naismith, back on the right.
If he sticks with the Nigerian, barring any late injuries, the Toffees are unlikely to change their personnel.
