Confirmed: Everton line-up to play Swindon Town

Everton

Here is how Everton will line up for their pre-season friendly against Swindon Town this afternoon:

Everton starting XI: Howard, Jagielka, Coleman, Browning, Galloway, McCarthy, Barkley, Pienaar, Deulofeu, Naismith, Kone

Everton take on Swindon Town in a pre-season friendly this afternoon before the Toffees head off for the Barclay’s Asia Trophy later this month.

Everton take on Stoke City in the opening match of that competition, followed by a clash against either Arsenal or a Singapore Select XI but first up is a match against the League One side.

The match takes place at the County Ground with a 3:00pm kick-off and it will allow Everton manager Roberto Martinez the chance to see which of his players are fit and firing and which need to up their game over the summer.

Everton have added Tom Cleverley, David Henen and Gerard Deulofeu to their ranks so far and there are likely to be more additions before the transfer window slams shut.

But in the meantime it is up to the players already on the club’s books to impress and with seven pre-season games in total there is plenty of time for them to do just that.
