Apollon Limassol v Everton

Everton youngster Morgan Feeney is expected to play against Apollon Limassol

Everton youngster Morgan Feeney is expected to play against Apollon Limassol

Allardyce got off to a winning start with the Toffees with a 2-0 victory against Huddersfield in the Premier League, but missed the 3-0 win at Apollon Limassol in the Europa League to attend a pre-arranged medical appointment.

First-team coaches Craig Shakespeare and Duncan Ferguson will take charge of the team for the trip.

Harry Charsley and Fraser Hornby made their bows from the start, with Morgan Feeney impressive on his first start for the club.

Everton won their last two games in Premier League and with new manager Big Sam at the head, they should feel pretty safe about staying up.

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

A youthful core of Under-23 and Under-18 regulars have also travelled, including 17-year-old defender Michael Collins and Ireland Under-21 global midfielder Harry Charsley.

Joel Robles, Morgan Schneiderlin, Davy Klaassen, Muhamed Besic, Kevin Mirallas, Nikola Vlasic, Ademola Lookman and Beni Baningime are reportedly the only senior players involved, meaning there could be as many as eight debutants.

Hosts Apollon Limassol have no major injury concerns ahead of the fixture, but may also rotate their squad in anticipation of Monday's league game with Omonia Nicosia.

Everton have a long way to go before they can compete with Liverpool, both on the pitch and financially.

It's been a quite frankly terrible European campaign for Everton, who have taken just one point from a possible 15 in this year's competition.
