Everton are due to take on Burnley in Premier League action tomorrow.

When Nikola Vlasic arrived at Everton this summer, the Croatian’s transfer was somewhat overlooked.

With Eveton spending big, the additions of the likes of Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Michael Keane generated huge interest.

Vlasic’s arrival, on the other hand, did not make many headlines, but he has arguably made the brightest start of any of Ronald Koeman’s summer additions.

While Everton’s big name recruits have all struggled, Vlasic has impressed whenever he has been given an opportunity.

The 19-year-old scored his first goal for the Toffees in the Europa League against Apollon Limassol and it is now time that the youngster is given a start in the Premier League.

Everton look a much brighter team when Vlasic is on the pitch, with his pace offering them a different outlet.

The Toffees have not had the options to stretch defences, but Vlasic does seem to have the skill to do just that.

Koeman has already shown that he is not afraid to put youngsters into his Everton line-up, and he should be brave again with his team selection against Burnley this weekend, if he wants to give the Toffees the best chance of picking up the three points.
