Everton boss Allardyce to miss Europa League game at Apollon

The Toffees named a younger starting line-up against BATE Borisov in 2009 when their place in the last 32 had already been assured, and while they selected a youthful team this time because they had already been eliminated, a win meant they at least avoided finishing bottom.

New boss Sam Allardyce has not made the trip due to a pre-arranged medical appointment with first team coaches Craig Shakespeare and Duncan Ferguson the men who could hand Lavery his debut from the dugout.

Everton have not finished about Liverpool in the league since the 2004/05 season, and that doesn't look like changing any time soon, with Jürgen Klopp's men now sitting comfortably in fourth position in the table, whilst Sam Allardyce's side occupy 10th spot.

Joel Robles comes in for Jordan Pickford in the only obvious change of the game.

Everton's XI, which featured two debutants - Harry Charsley and Fraser Hornby - was the youngest an English club had selected for a European group-stage fixture in eight years, and Shakespeare also brought on three teenagers for their bows, including 16-year-old Anthony Gordon. With the first-team stretched by injuries in defence, it could well be the case that teenager Collins joins second-string captain Morgan Feeney and Alex Denny in an inexperienced backline.

It's a more recognised attack for the Blues, with Ademola Lookman, Kevin Mirallas and Nikola Vlasic making up the wide and attacking midfield roles.

The youngster has scooped Under-18 and Under-23 Premier League titles with Everton's youth sides and has 14 caps for Ireland Under-21s.

In what could be the transfer of the century on Merseyside, Everton and Liverpool will go head to head soon.

That player is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
