David Unsworth is set to take charge of his third match as interim boss of Everton against Watford at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon - and fans want Nikola Vlasic to start.

The 20-year-old was one of Ronald Koeman's summer signings, joining for a fee of £8million from Croatian side Hajduk Split and has been one of the Toffees shining lights in a side that have fallen way below pre-season expectation.

Vlasic made only a substitute appearance against Lyon during Thursday night's 3-0 loss in the Europa League, replacing Aaron Lennon in the 71st minute.

Making eight appearances for the Toffees, Everton's number 27 has scored one goal for the Merseyside club against Group E opponents Apollon Limassol which helped Unsworth's side gain their only point of the Europa League campaign so far.

Everton fans have taken to Twitter to plead with caretaker manager Unsworth to start the young attacker, with one fan claiming that if the Toffees start with Vlasic then they "will win".
