Ireland U21 global handed Everton debut in this evening's Europa League game

Ireland U21 global handed Everton debut in this evening's Europa League game

With just one point from five group games, Everton are already out of the Europa League, and tonight's game is little more than a dead rubber game, with the Toffees' line-up showing exactly that.

Everton fan Tony Bellew admits he is fearful for his side's chances against Liverpool's "explosive" front-line ahead of Sunday's derby, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

He said: "The pro contract is something I've always wanted, so it's a dream come true".

Harry Charsley, Nathan Broadhead, Alex Denny, Fraser Hornby and Michael Collins are among the youngsters in contention to be part of the squad and Allardyce could also give an opportunity to summer signings Sandro Ramirez and Davy Klaassen as they look to impress.

Jurgen Klopp's side are the Premier League's third highest scorers (33) after 15 games, behind only Manchester United (35) and Manchester City (46).

The ex-Newcastle and Crystal Palace boss admitted he needed to change his diet in the wake of that operation, but it is unclear whether this upcoming appointment is related to that surgery or not.

Allardyce, 63, was appointed Everton manager on 30 November and his only game in charge has been the 2-0 win against Huddersfield on Saturday.

The Blues will make the short trip across Stanley Park on Sunday to take on their Red neighbours with the hope of finally ending their 18-year wait for an Anfield victory.
