CONFIRMED: Everton line-up v FK Krasnodar - Eto'o starts!


Here is the Everton side to take on FK Krasnodar in the Europa League, kick-off at 5pm.

Everton: Howard, Hibbert, Baines, Stones, Jagielka, Gibson, Barry, Atsu, McGeady, Osman, Eto'o

Subs: Robles, Oviedo, Browning, Alcaraz, Besic, Lukaku, Naismith

Everton were one of the most impressive teams in the Europa League for the first round of games as they saw off Wolfsburg with an impressive 4-1 win at Goodison Park.

FK Krasnodar present a completely different challenge in a different, hostile environment which leaves the Toffees with very little recovery and preparation time ahead of their match against Manchester United this Sunday.

Roberto Martinez can’t be blamed for changing up the side as he rests players for that game, but it’s a great chance for anyone coming in to impress the boss and put him under pressure in terms of team selection.

The Toffees go into this game after Phil Jagielka’s awesome strike in the closing moments against Liverpool rescued them a valuable point in the Merseyside derby last weekend.

Registering another win this afternoon will only increase the positive feeling at the club and create momentum.
