Everton have confirmed their travelling party for the Europa League game against Lille on Thursday.
The Toffees’ official Twitter account has posted the 21-man list that will travel to France ahead of the match.
Ross Barkley has been included after returning to first-team action against Aston Villa last weekend, while there are also places for goalkeeper Russell Griffiths and promising young defender Tyias Browning. There is however a notable absentee in the form of Steven Naismith while Leon Osman has also been excluded.
Everton have four points from their opening two Group H matches and Roberto Martinez’s side is currently two points clear of second-placed Krasnodar, with whom they drew 1-1- at the start of the month.
Lille are currently third in the group having drawn their opening two matches, and a win for Everton on Thursday would see them take huge strides towards the next round of the competition.
Their recent 3-0 win against Villa is likely to give them renewed confidence after a stuttering start to domestic matters this season, although they have impressed in Europe up to now.
