The Dublin team that will line out for Dessie Farrell’s first league game as manager includes 10 players that started last year’s historic All-Ireland final replay success over Kerry.
The two rivals will renew acquaintances in Croke Park this evening and, as expected, Evan Comerford takes over from captain Stephen Cluxton between the posts.
Eric Lowndes and Philly McMahon come into the defence while Kevin McManamon and Paddy Andrews get the nod to start up front.
Dublin (FL v Kerry) - E Comerford; E Lowndes, D Byrne, P McMahon; J McCarthy, J Small, E Murchan; B Fenton, B Howard; N Scully, P Mannion, C Kilkenny; K McManamon, P Andrews, D Rock.
Subs: M Shiel, S Bugler, A Byrne, L Flatman, C McHugh, C Mullally, D O’Brien, E O’Brien, R O’Carroll, E O’Conghaile, C O’Shea.
