Ronald Koeman is set to award five debuts as Everton play their first competitive fixture of the season against Slovakian side Ruzomberok. Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez and Wayne Rooney are all set to debut, the latter for the second time, in the Europa League 3rd qualifying round at Goodison Park.
With club captain Phil Jagielka making do with a place amongst the substitutes, Leighton Baines is expected to wear the armband. Jonjoe Kenny is our tip to start at right back, although Everton’s u23 skipper will face competition from Mason Holgate and new signing Cuco Martina. Elsewhere we expect Kevin Mirallas to get the nod ahead of youngsters Kieron Dowell and Ademola Lookmam.
