Confirmed: Everton line-up v Young Boys in the Europa League

Here is the team Roberto Martinez has selected for Everton in the Europa League game against Young Boys.

Everton: Everton: Howard, Jagielka, Oviedo, Lukaku, Mirallas, Naismith, McCarthy, Barry, Coleman, Barkley, Stones

Subs: Joel, Gibson, Besic, Atsu, Alcaraz, Garbutt, C.Duffus

Everton have a chance to put their league concerns to once side this evening as they taken on Young Boys in the first leg of their Europa League game away in Switzerland.

It’s a chance for any fringe or youth players being brought into the side to show Roberto Martinez why they should be in the team more consistently over the rest of the season.

Everton have had a long break since their last game, which was a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea.

Their form has been good because that’s the only defeat they have suffered since they lost to Hull City in the game on New Year’s Day.

Everton don’t look as though they are going to get close to the Premier League’s top four this season, which makes the Europa League more important because it represents a place in the Champions League looking ahead to the next campaign.

Everton’s aim this evening will more than likely be to stay in the game and get the tie back to England where they can attack in front of their home support.
