Nothing much to really see here. We went to Apollon under no illusions that it was a dead rubber and we played very much like it was. We took the mick at times during the game and coasted home beyond a 15 minute period either side of the half where Joel Robles made a few tidy saves.

The young Blues were by far the better team and it wasn’t really a case of Apollon being especially poor, the kids were alright. Ademola Lookman, Morgan Feeney, Harry Charsley and Nikola Vlašić all really impressed while experienced heads such as Robles, Kvein Mirallas and Mo Bešić seemed to cope well.

Schneiderlin aims for "fresh start" under Allardyce

  Schneiderlin aims for Everton midfielder Morgan Schneiderin reveals that he is hoping to make a “fresh start” under new manager Sam Allardyce after making a slow start to life as an Everton player, according to a report on Sky Sports. The Frenchman joined Everton from fellow Premier League club Manchester United and the Toffees expected him to develop during his time at the club, but unfortunately the midfielder has lost confidence and form. He has found himself on the substitutes bench quite often recently but is hoping to start fresh under the new manager and hopes he can make a good impression on him during training sessions. Schneiderlin may start for Everton in their final group game of a disastrous UEFA Europa League campaign against Apollon Limassol tonight and believes that this could be a chance to show the manager that he is good enough to start matches. “Since I (started to) play football, in every game you have something to prove. That is part of being a football player. Every game you have to show what you can do and there is not going to be any difference (against Limassol). We are going to do our maximum to win the game.” The Blues face Liverpool on Sunday in the Merseyside Derby and majority of the first team players are expected to be rested tonight ahead of that game.

And then there was Morgan Schneiderlin and I don’t really know why he played.

A player born in the year 2001 came on to round out a decent game for the travelling blues as Craig Shakespeare takes the record of the best record for an Everton manager of all time.

Legendary manager.

On to that game over at their place at the weekend now.

Everton watch Lille defender in action .
Everton have been linked with a move for Lille central defender Adama Soumaoro in recent times. The Toffees are said to be on the lookout for defensive reinforcements ahead of the January transfer window, and Soumaoro seems to be a man under consideration. According to a report from the Daily Mail, Everton’s director of football Steve Walsh was joined by the club’s chief scout Martyn Glover as they watched the 25-year-old in action for Lille on Wednesday. Lille took on OGC Nice in a Ligue 1 clash but saw little from Soumaoro, as he lined up in a team lacking in confidence following a treacherous run of form. The French outfit only recently sacked their manager, Marcelo Bielsa, too. Everton’s back-line has been stretched this season as a result of poor performances and injury worries, but it seems Sam Allardyce is already on the lookout for fresh blood to strengthen the defence in January.
