Everton take on Milton Keynes Dons this evening...

Everton starting line-up: Stekelenburg, Coleman, Pennington, Funes Mori, Oviedo, Tarashaj, Cleverley, Davies, Mirallas, Barkley, Deulofeu.

Everton substitutes: Robles, Hewelt, Holgate, Stones, Galloway, Baines, Lennon, Gibson, Besic, Grant, Dowell, McGeady.

Everton's pre-season preparations continue this evening as they travel to take on League One side Milton Keynes Dons, looking for another win.

The Toffees kickstarted their pre-season with a 3-0 win over Championship outfit Barnsley on Saturday afternoon, with Kevin Mirallas, Gerard Deulofeu and Ross Barkley all scoring in a thumping victory.

Ronald Koeman's men are in action again tonight though, as they face MK Dons in another good test for a youthful Everton side.

Deulofeu continues in an unfamiliar striking role, but will be supported by Ross Barkley and Kevin Mirallas, whilst Swiss international Shani Tarashaj starts having linked up with the club this summer.

Another summer arrival starts in goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, whilst youngsters Matthew Pennington and Tom Davies are also included.

The bench features big names like John Stones, Leighton Baines, Aaron Lennon and Muhamed Besic, whilst there's also a place for Aiden McGeady too, as he looks to save his Everton career.
