Tom Davies and Jonjoe Kenny enjoying Sam Allardyce's 'straightforward' approach at Everton

While new manager Sam Allardyce misses the trip due to a medical appointment, a number of youngsters have been included in the squad to take on Apollon Limassol.

Both players were left out of the win over Huddersfield on Saturday and are keen to get an opportunity to show the new manager what they are capable of doing.

Northern Ireland Under 21 global Shayne Lavery has been named on the bench for Everton's final Europa League group game this evening.

The Toffees, already eliminated from the competition, face Apollon Limassol in Nicosia this evening.

Harry Charsley debuts at left-back with a central midfield of Davy Klaassen who made it to the final of the competition past year and Morgan Schneiderlin.

If that featured some good play in the build-up, it was nothing compared to the Toffees' second.




Kenny believes Everton's improvement in recent games proves the players have all taken to Allardyce's style.

Afforded space and time, he pulled the trigger from distance and his 25-yard attempt was too quick for Kissas.

Lookman could have put the game to bed in the 57th minute when he jinked into the box and saw a left-footed try that would have given him a flawless hat-trick stopped by Kissas.

Nikola Vlasic added gloss to the win by calmly slotting in three minutes from time.

Alex Denny - England Under-17 global Denny is a ball-winning defensive midfielder by trade, but has also stepped up admirably to fill in at centre-back for David Unsworth's second-string team at times this season.

Punters may wish to use their free bet to back Everton to get a result in the Merseyside derby, as despite their struggles this season the players will be keen to impress Allardyce and Liverpool also have a midweek European game and still have some work to do to qualify.
