Everton will be without duo Leighton Baines and Aiden McGeady for their Europa League tie against Young Boys.

Baines has missed the last two Premier League games with a knee injury while McGeady is also reportedly suffering from a similar complaint.

Elsewhere, the Blues are also without Leon Osman, Arouna Kone and Steven Pienaar, who all featured for the under-21's on Monday evening as they continue their rehabilitation.

Unfortunately Aaron Lennon is also absent from the squad as he is cup tied, having featured in the competition for Tottenham, although winger Christian Atsu could use the lack of competition to prove his point, with him returning after an impressive African Cup of Nations for Ghana.

Roberto Martinez's men take on Young Boys in the last 32 first leg tie at the Stade de Suisse on Thursday evening, and you can keep up with all the action here on RoyalBlueMersey. You can find out match preview here.
