Confirmed: Everton starting line-up to play Dundee

Here is how Everton will line up for their match against Dundee this evening:

Everton starting XI: Joel, Coleman, Stones, Browning, Baines, McCarthy, Cleverley, Barkley, Naismith, McAleny, Lukaku

Everton continue their pre-season preparations with a friendly against Dundee tonight.

Roberto Martinez’s side have already recorded one victory against Scottish opposition this summer, after defeating Hearts 3-1 on Sunday courtesy of a Romelu Lukaku hat-trick. And now the trick is to try to make it a double before they head back to England.

Upon their return Everton will face Leeds United and then Spanish side Villarreal before their Premier League campaign kicks off on Saturday 8 August against newly-promoted Watford.

By then Martinez will be hoping his side is fit and ready to go, meaning this evening’s game is vital.

Everton have made some canny signings so far this summer and if they add one or two more and keep their talented young side together then there is a chance they could impress in what will be the former Wigan Athletic bos’s third season in charge at Goodison Park.
