I should have had a hat-trick, but it's one of those days - the keeper saved a couple of my chances. To get three points today and a clean sheet was fantastic. Thus, it is in the defensive half that the new manager Sam Allardyce can help unify the team.

Beni Baningime starts at right-back in a defence with Morgan Feeney and Muhamed Besic in the centre.

In recent years, Sam Allardyce has been viewed primarily as a guarantee of Premier League survival through direct, if uninspiring, football. "There is an opportunity for the players tonight to go out there and try to get a result".

"He has come in with his own ideas and everyone has taken to them". I have to deal with it.

'We want to win the game and finish the campaign on a good note.

Both players are products of the Everton youth system. His first task must surely be to unite the dressing room and fans behind him. You are always learning about your players and forming opinions about them.

Ireland midfielder James McCarthy is likely to return to the Everton starting line-up as Allardyce tests the strength of his squad before the January transfer window.

Despite these challenges, Everton's future seems bright given the current crop of academy graduates pushing for first-team places.

The Toffees have already been knocked out of the competition and that came two games ago.

There are several more potential debutants on a youthful bench that boasts an average age of 17.86, with Mateusz Hewitt, Michael Collins, Alex Denny, Shayne Lavery, Anthony Gordon, Nathan Broadhead and Stephen Duke-McKenna among the substitutes.
