With things already shaping up nicely under Ronald Koeman, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Toffees to achieve a comfortable win against Darren Way's League Two outfit
Having knocked out League One Walsall after extra-time in the last round, the League Two outfit are available at 12/1 (13.00) with Paddy Power to upset the odds once again here.
After overseeing his first win since taking over in the summer against West Brom on Saturday, Ronald Koeman is priced at a slender 1/5 (1.20) to follow that up with another victory in this one.
Two of the hosts’ last three home games in this competition have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 11/2 (6.50) on this clash going into extra-time after a deadlocked 90 minutes.
Having gone all out to tempt Koeman to leave Southampton for Merseyside, the club’s main owner Farhad Moshiri will be delighted with the Dutchman’s start to life in the dugout.
As well as holding Tottenham to an opening-day draw and securing three points away to a difficult West Brom team, the former Saints boss looks to be forming a strong team after convincing Romelu Lukaku to stay.
Unfit to start either of the first two matches, Lukaku is expected to lead the line on Tuesday in a team also featuring new signings Yannick Bolasie and Ashley Williams. However, Koeman is unlikely to shuffle the pack too much otherwise, meaning a strong line-up should take to the field against lower league opposition.
This is not good news for Darren Way’s side, who have lost all 12 of their cup encounters with top flight opposition since 1949 and never managed to make it past the second round of this competition.
With just one win and three goals to their name within 90 minutes after five matches so far this season, the Glovers look set for a difficult night against their confident hosts, meaning odds of 5/4 (2.25) are well worth the investment on Everton winning both halves.
