Ireland U21 global handed Everton debut in this evening's Europa League game

Ireland U21 global handed Everton debut in this evening's Europa League game

In the absence of Sam Allardyce, who handed the reins to assistants Craig Shakespeare and Duncan Ferguson in order to attend a medical appointment, Everton will take all the encouragement it can get from a third straight competitive victory ahead of its visit to Anfield.

With Everton already eliminated from the competition it seems to make sense to give young players a runout - and most Everton fans agree.

IT'S A BIG night for Harry Charsley as the Everton youngster is making his senior debut.

With little riding on the match- Everton, being bottom of Group E, can not progress- and Premier League performances privileged, assistant manager Craig Shakespeare will be joined by Duncan Ferguson in leading a shadow team in Cyprus.

Joel Robles comes in for Jordan Pickford in the only obvious change of the game.

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

And the visitor was rewarded for their bright opening as Nikola Vlasic collected a one-two with Kevin Mirallas and dinked a cross to the far post for Lookman to head high into the net.

Asked for an injury update on that pair amid rumours that Sandro, who has made just three Premier League starts since arriving at Everton from Malaga in July, had picked up a knock, Shakespeare replied: "Both of those players haven't travelled".

Everton have not finished about Liverpool in the league since the 2004/05 season, and that doesn't look like changing any time soon, with Jürgen Klopp's men now sitting comfortably in fourth position in the table, whilst Sam Allardyce's side occupy 10th spot.

Though, not only will they face off on the pitch, they will face off for one of the most recognised strikers in world football.
